2005 AWIB Leadership Dinner
Tenth Anniversary Gala

Celebrating Ten Years of Excellence

Monday, October 17, 2005

Over 500 guests joined Asian Women In Business to toast the accomplishments of successful Asian women entrepreneurs and corporate leaders at the Tenth Annual Leadership Awards Dinner. The celebration was held at Bridgewaters, the South Street Seaport, located in the heart of Lower Manhattan.

This year's honorees, like previous winners, are high-achieving pacesetters who overcame substantial economic, gender and racial barriers. Not only do these noteworthy individuals continue to blaze new trails for Asian women, they share a philanthropic spirit and are committed to improving their communities.

The 2005 Entrepreneurial Leadership Award went to:

 Leena Doshi

Mannings Pharmacy

 The 2005 Corporate Leadership Award went to:

A special 10 Year Recognition Award was given to Admerasia, an advertising and marketing agency that specializes in the Asian-American market, for its commitment to AWIB's mission. Since our first Annual Dinner in 1996, Admerasia has provided numerous pro-bono services and behind the scenes support to AWIB, helping us grow from a start up to a nationally renowned organization.

Taiko Masala thrilled the audience with their high energy Japanese Taiko drum performance. Guests were also treated to Master Cheng's entertaining paper cutting as well as a Karmic Henna table. An extensive silent auction was also held throughout the evening.

The 2005 Gala marked AWIB's Tenth Anniversary of supporting the small business community. Proceeds from the Dinner go towards our 2006 educational programs and resources.

Lastly, AWIB's sponsors, many of which are long-term supporters, were instrumental in making the Leadership Dinner another success.
