Elizabeth raised $165,000 from friends, family and colleagues for the capital campaign in addition to her and WFIB’s regular support of ACRS events and operations. ACRS asked Huang to share why she supports ACRS: “When I learned that the ACRS was in the middle of a capital campaign to fund a much needed, larger and more accessible new building, I was excited to help. I strongly support organizations that provide social and health services to new immigrant families, and agreed to join the Board after meeting Diane and getting to Elizabeth Huang know more about the specialized services provided by ACRS. 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.” COMMITTEE MEMBERS KEY TO SUCCESS 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.
