2009 HalfKorean.com Los Angeles Meet
HalfKorean.com meeting on Saturday October 10, 2009 in Los Angeles, CA at the Korean National Association building (near USC).
Date: Saturday, October 10, 2009
Time: 3:00pm – 5:00pm
Location: Korean National Association Building
Address: 1368 West Jefferson Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90007 (Google Map)
This meeting is for anyone whom is part/mixed Korean; It doesn’t matter what the percentage is, what the other mix is, how old you are and where you were born/raised. Other folks (i.e. non-mixed Koreans) are welcome to attend as well as long as they have a sincere interest in people of mixed Korean descent (or if they are a significant other, etc.).
The reason for this meet is simple. We haven’t had one in many years (since 1998!) and I believe it is the right time to have one again.
We will have the meeting and have dinner sometime afterward in Ktown. There is no cost for the meeting itself, just for wherever we decide to have dinner. We will try to have a place in mind by the time of the meeting (due to the possibility of a larger group we may need to make reservations).
It will consist of a few speakers and then open discussion between all attendees. I want it to be a social and networking opportunity for us all but semi-informational/educational at the same time.
Right now, I have lined up the following speakers:
Philip “Flip” Cuddy – Very prominent person/voice of Korean-American History/Culture who also happens to be the Grandson of famous Korean patriot “Dosan” Ahn Chang Ho and son of Korean American pioneer Susan Ahn Cuddy. If you don’t know who they are please Google 🙂
Frankie & Tia Legoski – Korean Amerasian couple whom are members of HAAUSA (Hanmi Amerasians Association of the USA). They are the founders of the non-profit organization Amerasian Unity Foundation as well as the creators of a collaborative effort named “Journey to Motherland” which is a cultural event/trip to Korea for 2010 to coincide with the 60th Anniversary of the Korean War. They will discuss this in further detail at the meeting.
Please let me know if you can make the meet, dinner, or both so we can have a good estimate on head count.
To confirm if you are able to attend and/or for more info please contact David Lee Sanders or Tia Legoski
