My wife has some friends who are involved with the Dynasty Project. From their mission statement, the Dynasty Project creates and supports innovative programs that enrich local Asian communities through athletics and the pursuit of athletic endeavors. They look to build a culture of athletics in Asian communities as part of a complete and healthy lifestyle while providing the resources to maintain that culture for future generations. Through athletics, they seek to promote important life skills such as teamwork, leadership, the value of hard work and sacrifice, discipline, and healthy living all while getting exposure to programs and resources that might not otherwise be accessible to Asian American communities.
As you may recall, my wife is a baker (The Cake Dealer). She often will donate her baked goods for various events that the Dynasty Project hosts. This last event was in collaboration with Dale Talde, Top Chef allstar. They held a casino night with cool auction prizes. I donated my photo services and got to taste some of Dale’s food. Check out the pics below. The food consisted of veggie samosas, fried dumplings, soba noodles, sticky rice, shrimp, and broad flat noodle rolls with pork. Really great stuff, and a fun time.
