The Vietnamese American Bar Association of Washington’s annual banquet was held on Oct. 28 at the Triple Door. The theme for the evening was “Ambassadors to Our Communities.” The sold-out event was packed with 230 guests.
The event kicked off with hors d’oeuvres and drinks followed by a three-course dinner catered by Wild Ginger. The keynote speaker was Jerilyn Brusseau, co-founder and president of PeaceTrees in Vietnam, an organization that sponsors the clearance of landmines in the Quang Tri Province of Vietnam.
The event concluded with a fashion show of traditional Vietnamese “ao dai” dresses by designer Thai Nguyen.
