Black & White Gala :: Sacramento Lao Family Community

Last night I had the pleasure of attending the Black & White Fundraising Gala hosted by the Lao Family Community Development at the Sacramento Scottish Rite Masonic Center for their 36th Anniversary Celebration. I went with the girlfriends and we had a great time. I got to meet some really amazing individuals as well.

It made me remember how significant their work is. When we moved to the U.S. from Vietnam 22 years ago, we received similar help from the Vietnamese community services group. Without such help, we wouldn’t be able to get acclimated as quickly as we did. And here they are working to help thousands and thousands of families year in and year out.

Small or large, money or labor, if each of us contribute, small effort becomes large.

After all, mountains are made from many, many little stones.
