Curry Clash 2023 was a great success!
Our 9th annual Curry Clash fundraiser brought in a record breaking $70,000+ in support for the Asian Center’s programs. 23 local chefs were featured, sharing their curry-inspired creations with 400 guests. 36 businesses and households showed their support through sponsorships. Over 120 Kind Neighbor Society donors were recognized for their partnership.
