New York City Alumni Reception
Posted By Kevin R. Johnson, Jun 11, 2010
On Wednesday, June 9, I had the pleasure of participating in my first King Hall alumni reception in New York City. Hosted by Rob Smits '88, who is a managing partner of Salans LLC at their office in Rockefeller Center, the event featured great food, warm and wonderful conversation, and an outstanding turnout, despite the rainy weather.
Among the alumni in attendance were Gene Woo '85 (our new Alumni Board member, who just happened to be in New York that evening), the Honorable Jane Restani '73, Michael Berens '07, Joe Bernstein '75, Jay Carlisle '69, Victoria Choy '05, Charone Fankel '05, Daniel Inouyé '93, Sally Lu Lake '77, Jennifer Michael '04, Fred Miller '76, Anthony Rao '94, Treb Winegar '02, Uyen Le '11, Nicole Ocampo '11, Taleen Aiazian '11, Elica Vafaie '11, and Joanna Cuevas Ingram '12 (who wrote a nice Facebook posting about the event).
It was wonderful to reconnect with these proud King Hall alumni, and inspiring to catch up on the great things they have achieved. As we continue to work to schedule more of these alumni receptions around the country, I know I'll be eagerly looking forward to the next New York City event.
