Known as the “Robbies,” since 2004, the Asian Hall of Fame awards, given by the Robert Chinn Foundation, serve to honor people of Asian and Pacific Islander descent who have greatly contributed to the American experience. The awards event took place on Nov. 19 at the Asian Resource Center.

This year’s honorees are Charlotte Bobcats General Manager Richard Cho, White House doctor Eleanor Concepcion Mariano, and entertainment executive Teddy Zee.

Recipients received awards handcrafted by artist George Tsutakawa. About 200 people attended the event. (end)
