25 Groundbreaking Years

Angel Island Immigration Foundation Station will be celebrating 25 Groundbreaking Years of bringing awareness of the experience of immigration into American on the West Coast at a gala dinner on April 11, 2019 at the Hyatt Embarcadero, San Francisco. 

Board Chairman Buck Gee and Event Co-Chairs Claudine Cheng, Vish Mishra and Gerrye Wong announce, “AIISF’s Annual Gala at the Hyatt Embarcadero will raise funds to continue bringing awareness of the experience of immigration into America through the Pacific. The Foundation provides financial support for the preservation and interpretation of the U.S. Immigration Station on Angel Island. The Foundation collects personal stories and preserves oral histories through the Immigrant Voices archive. 

At this milestone event, we will honor five very special individuals for their unique contributions to promote the Foundation’s mission and work with the Immigrant Heritage Awards:

Dennis Wu, Lifetime Achievement
Vijay Amritraj, Philanthropy
Thuy Vu, Community Leadership
Joe and Eliz Chan, Spirit of Angel Island 

Your support will ensure that the Foundation continues its vital work throughout the year, and this will be an evening to not miss with recently elected State Treasurer Fiona Ma as our emcee and Jay Cheng as our auctioneer.
