NewSpeak Board member Geena Oh happens to be this year’s president of Project by Project. This fantastic operation selects one deserving organization (this year it is the Asian Pacific Island Small Business Program) and helps them generate buzz and raise funds for a year.

This year we were excited to participate in this year’s Plate by Plate hosted by James Kyson Lee and Jinah Kim. The political junkie in us almost cried tears of fan love for VIP speaker John Chiang (California State Controller, goooosh). In addition to the great vibe, we sampled dishes from participating restaurants like Maison Akira, Roy’s, Katsuya, Mendocino Farms and many, many more! The eats were just the beginning with a fantastic array of tasty beverages (Sapporo, Singha, sake tasting, wineries, you get the picture) we were, honestly, not tasting much of the food by the end of the night!

There is nothing we at NewSpeak like better than drinking for a good cause.

They are a national org so check them out at their website for future events: https://www.projectbyproject.org/
