This Charity ball was extremely successful with Merrill Lynch as a Grand Sponsor and Staten Island University Hospitality group as co-sponsor. Media from Indian, Chinese, Korean and Philipino communities covered the event. TV Asia covered the entire event. Chinese, Korean, Mongolian, and Philipino, communities got first hand taste of Grandeur and beauty of Royal Albert Palace and delicious food by Sabari Restaurant. Mongolian community leader Dordscho Muschajew was so impressed with the venue and the food that he approached Mr. Parikh to help reserve Royal Albert Palace for Mongolian community to celebrate New Year’s Eve of 2006! “Who says you can have a fund raiser and not have fun at the same time”, said one of the Philipino community leaders.

The vision of the association is to establish a Center for Wellness and Health with interdisciplinary professional staff to address the developmental and psychosocial needs of the Asian American community from infancy to old age. Furthermore, the vision also includes the expansion of the association in the neighboring states so that the emerging human service needs of the Asian American community may be adequately met.
