I had the opportunity to attend a fundraiser on Thursday night. Steve Cho is running for Mayor and he held the event at one of the car dealerships here in town. One of the features was Martin Yan of Yan Can Cook.
Dr. Tae Yun Kim is a friend of Steve Cho’s, there to support his race for Mayor. Steve Cho called up Dr. Kim to say a few encouraging and lively words. Dr. Kim talked about issues we are facing in our city and why Steve Cho is the person to attack and fix those issues. Sometimes fundraisers can be a bit dry and monotonous. Dr. Kim sure broke that stereotype – she listed Steve’s 3 main issues on his platform, said wonderful things about Steve and the city, and gave the audience a great dose of her vibrant buoyancy. I could feel the audience’s excitement growing around me.
After that, Martin Yan gave us a cooking lesson. He called up Steve Cho and Dr. Kim to be his assistants. Martin Yan is a very funny fellow, bringing humor along with his lessons. He’s a crowd-pleaser, just like his food!
It was a fun time and my future memory says “Congratulations to our new mayor, Steve Cho!”
