The other night I was invited to the Charles B Wang fundraiser. Mr. Wang is the legend that created Computer Associates. This man has been so generous with his fortune. In Chinatown in particular, he built our health clinic.  This year marked its 10th anniversary.  At the gala, Mr. Wang was the honoree.

I had the honor of meeting the impressive man. He was surprisingly humble. Mr. Wang has so many accomplishments.  He spoke with us about an organization he founded called Smile Train which helps to provide poor children with cleft surgery. 

Sitting around the table with me were other APA advocates and community members. Mr Wang and Mr Teng inspired us to put together a fundraiser in the community to help these children. 

It would be an honor for us to help these children in the spirit of Mr. Wang.  I believe it is important for us to give back to a man who has done so much for Chinatown.
