                  My husband and I contributed to the building project knowing that it would be
                  beneficial to the Asian Pacific American community and that ACRS would manage
                  the project well. I also encouraged many of my friends and colleagues to join me
                  in supporting ACRS and its new home, and was pleased that many of them made
                  significant contributions. We know our donations will be put to good use, and are
                  excited to make a difference in the lives of many.”

                  All of us at ACRS are very grateful to the members of our Capital Campaign and Honorary
                  Advisory Committees. Without their wise, energetic leadership and generous contributions of
                  time, money and expertise, we could not have reached our goal. Special thanks to courageous
                  Capital Campaign Co-Chairs Lisa Chin and Hank Queen for leading our successful campaign.
