The Asian Counseling and Referral Service (ACRS) had a benefit dinner and auction at the Seattle Sheraton entitled “Faces of Community, Masks of Tradition,” on Saturday, Sept. 13. Hosted by Lori Matsukawa, the event also featured Garfield’s Jazz Combo, a three-course dinner, a dance from Long Life Association and several silent auctions. Attendees were able to pick from lavish vacation packages, to a pig roast for 40, to a Washington sailing cruise, to a sweet dessert auction.
The National Asian American Pacific Islander Mental Health Association board flew across the country to honor ACRS and attend the anniversary dinner.
ACRS raised $200,000 that night. ♦
