The Asian American Lawyers Association of Massachusetts hosted their annual Holiday Party at Proskauer Rose LLP this year on Thursday, December 8th. The main speaker was former Massachusetts Attorney General Scott Harshbarger.
The event sponsored two organizations: the Asian Outreach Unit at Greater Boston Legal Services (GBLS) and Rice Sticks and Tea. Cyndi Mark, the lead attorney with the Asian Outreach Unit, gave a really moving speech about the work GBLS does for the community.
As the original founder of Rice Sticks and Tea, Sherry Dong explained what the non-profit organization does to benefit and feed low-income Asian families in the Boston area. Do not let the outdated website fool you. Even though the website only has two entries on it and the last entry is dated October 2011, Rice Sticks and Tea is an active volunteer organization that helps over 120 families every month.
Also, the food at the event was delicious!
