National volunteer organization Project by Project hosted its 11th annual Plate by Plate Los Angeles tasting fundraiser event at Vibiana in downtown LA on Saturday, August 3. Hundreds of attendees enjoyed food and beverages from over 50 of Southern California’s finest restaurants and purveyors. In keeping with this year’s “Arts” theme, a current issue that addresses the Asian American community, East West Players was chosen as PbP LA’s non-profit regional partner. $10,000 – 100 percent of proceeds from this event’s ticket sales net proceeds – went to EWP. “Our partnership with East West Players was decided upon for its importance and long history of contribution to the API art community not only through the organization solely, but just as much through its alumni,” said PbP Manager of Public Relations Mayly Tao via email.
Every year, each PbP chapter partners with a different community based non-profit through assisting with community outreach, public awareness, and developing efficient and innovative ways to raise capital.
“We’re also growing in all of our chapters and we’re seeing increased impacts in inspiring working professionals to get more connected with their communities,” said PbP LA Chapter President Marian Bacol-Uba.
