AIISF and Angel Island State Park will host the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services and its naturalization ceremony for a group of immigrants. This event is held in honor of Citizenship Day and Constitution Week, commemorating the signing of the U.S. Constitution on September 17, 1787.


Monday, September 21, 2015, 10 am - 8 pm - Fore Charity Golf event

Location: Lake Merced Golf Club
The Thomas & Eva Family Foundation is hosting an annual charity golf event to benefit the Angel Island Immigration Station Foundation.

We hope you will join us for a fun, relaxing day of golf with friends at the beautiful Lake Merced Golf Club while raising money for ANGEL ISLAND IMMIGRATION STATION FOUNDATION, an excellent cause whose mission is to raise awareness of the experience of immigration into America through the Pacific.

Our board member, Rodney Fong, and his family are organizing this tournament for the ninth time. As Rodney notes, "Three of my grandparents, including my paternal Grandfather Tommy Fong, were Angel Island detainees. They were immigrants during the Chinese Exclusion Act. AIISF collects and preserves the rich stories and personal journeys of thousand of immigrants, and shares them with California schoolchildren, visitors and everyone living in America through education initiatives and public programs. Angel Island Immigration reminds us of the complicated history of immigration in America. It serves as a symbol of our willingness to learn from our past to ensure that our nation keeps its promise of liberty and freedom."
