It's time to mark a milestone like no other! Join AREAA Portland for an evening that will ignite your senses, inspire your soul, and transcend community. Get ready to step into a world where one becomes many and authenticity meets pride. “From Monolith to Mosaic” is not just a gala event; it's an experience, a celebration of culture, an invitation to contribute, a showcase of fashion, and a tribute to local changemakers.

Down Payment Assistance Fundraiser
Over the past decade, AREAA Portland has been committed to representation and advocacy for Asian American Pacific Islander homeownership. Now, we invite you to be a part of the journey. This milestone gala will serve as the official fundraiser for our down payment assistance initiative. 100% of the proceeds raised will directly benefit the fund. With your support, low-income and first-generation homebuyers with limited-English proficiency will be intentionally prioritized.

Stephanie Mai Collection Debut
Prepare to be dazzled by the fresh and sophisticated creations of Stephanie Mai. Established in 2008 and placed in the top 3 for Best Custom Gowns in the Oregon Bride Magazine Best of 2023 - each design is handcrafted using couture dressmaking techniques, with the utmost attention to detail, proper flattering fits, and timeless silhouettes. The exclusive debut of Stephanie Mai’s latest collection will leave you mesmerized.

Asian American Changemaker Awards
In partnership with Asian American Town, we will recognize local changemakers who embody reciprocity and collaboration. Follow @asianamericantown on Instagram to nominate and vote!
