International Examiner, named after the International District of Seattle, held a fundraiser to help with its 36th year running as the only Pan-Asian non-profit newspaper of the west coast. Thanks to generosity of Phil Smart Sr., who recently received the “Spirit of Hong Kong” award, the event went smoothly at Phil Smart Mercedes-Benz Airport Way Dealership. The evening of food, wine, and entertainment was filled with laughter as guests mingled with one another, strengthening the bond of the Asian community one hand shake at a time.

Thanks to generosity of Phil Smart Sr., who recently received the “Spirit of Hong Kong” award, the event went smoothly at Phil Smart Mercedes-Benz Airport Way Dealership. The evening of food, wine, and entertainment was filled with laughter as guests mingled with one another, strengthening the bond of the Asian community one hand shake at a time.

 

The night’s entertainment hosted by former Q13 Fox news anchors Derek Wing and Christine Chen included Kokon Taiko Drums, Miho & Diego Marimba flute duo, Chiyo Sanada showing Japanese calligraphy, and many more. One of the best stage presences was Phil Smart Sr. himself, who captivated the entire audience with several stories of his life.

 

The event also had attractions of many kinds. Being at a Mercedes-Benz dealership, of course there are the fancy vehicles to ogle at. Moreover, there are chocolate, chef demonstrations, wine-tasting, artist showcase, Bruce Lee collector items showcase by Perry Lee, and a presentation of the long history of International Examiner.

 

Although serving as a voice for Asian Pacific Americans, the International Examiner largely operates on the support and donation of the community. Please look forward to their annual Community Voice of Word event coming on May 19th this year. For more information and to help out the local family, see http://www.iexaminer.org/
