Anissah Andang, Managing Partner at Nguyen & Chen, LLP, was once again honored to participate on the Host Committee of the annual Tiger Ball, produced by the Asia Society of Texas Center. The lavish event was held March 3, in honor of Sylvia and Gordon Quan, longtime Asia Society advocates.
Tiger Ball 2018: Celebrating the Diversity of Asia raised $1.2 million, shattering its fundraising goal in support of Asia Society Texas Center’s 150+ public programs. Asia Society Texas Center executes the global mission of Asia Society with a local focus, enriching and engaging the vast diversity of Houston through innovative, relevant programs in arts and culture, business and policy, education, and community outreach.
Upon their arrival, Anissah and more than 600 guests were greeted by several wishing trees, strung with hot pink and red ribbons. The reception tent was decorated in a Taj Mahal theme, complete with Moorish gates, lanterns, rugs, ottomans and lounging poofs. Guests enjoyed cocktails and Chinese performances by Dance of Asian America, who led a procession into the Grand Hall for dinner.
Guests enjoyed a sumptuous Pan-Asian dinner. After dinner, guests returned to the tent for decadent Pan-Asian desserts and an impromptu hula lesson by dancers from the Ka Pā Hula Nā Pua O Kamali’i Polynesian dance ensemble.
