The American Cancer Society’s Asian Initiatives Unit hosted a Young Professionals Gala for Hope at Taj on Feburary 5, 2009. The honorees for the evening were talented clothing designer Zang Toi and June Jee, a director at Verizon. The designer was surrounded by a bevy of pagent darlings like Miss USA and Miss Universe, both of whom were magnificently draped in Zang's designs. All around the club were product displays of goodies for the silent auction. Heavenly dessert samples were provided by Tawny Ong. There were many awesome guests in attendance including Kevin Kim who will be running for Congressman in Queens next year. Mr. Kim noted that he was interested in diversifing the borough, integrationg the old residents with the new influx of Queens residents. Toward the end of the evening, Lei Pasifika performed a traditional Polynesian dance which was so well recived by the audience they joined in. Taj was abuzz all evening and it was all for a good cause.
