On Jan. 23, 2010, the Seattle chapter of the Asian American Journalists Association held its annual Lunar New Year Banquet & Silent Auction. Nearly 80 people attended this year’s event at Tea Palace Asian Restaurant in Renton.

The chapter raised more than $2,500 from the event to support its non-profit programs, including the Northwest Journalists of Color scholarship. Thanks to all who attended and supported this event!
