The evening’s celebrations were kicked off by emcees Jessica Nguyen and Tien Nguyen. 2009 VABAW President Thi Huynh welcomed our guests.

Our keynote speaker was Dr. Eugene Trinh, the first Vietnamese-American to travel into outer space. Guests also heard from our 2009 Hong Duc Clerkship Recipient Dai Dao. During the reception hour, guests participated in the silent auction of authentic Vietnamese scrolls. We also held an auction for the “Let’s Go Home” painting.

Traditional to all of our VABAW Banquet celebrations, guests were treated to entertainment highlighting the Vietnamese culture.  Fashion designer Thai Nguyen presented a showcase of the traditional ao dai dress, accompanied by “modern” “skinny jeans.”
