AWIB's Annual Gala provided a great way to network and mingle with fellow AWIB members and supporters.  The evening began with a vibrant cocktail reception followed by a multi-course sit down dinner.  The evening also included a riveting live auction and an awards ceremony where Asian women leaders were feted for their success and contribution to the community.

AWIB hosted its first live auction showcasing extravagant, "once in a lifetime" marquee items.  The perennial favorite silent auction included enticing items such as dining certificates to New York's most exclusive restaurants, luxury goods from high-end designers, exciting getaways and autographed memorabilia.  The many attendees experienced the sparkle and shine as AWIB ushers in the new decade with fifteen incredible years of service behind it and many more to come.
