Grace Meng, representative of New York’s 6th Congressional District and first ever Asian American congressperson from the east coast, will be in the Seattle area on Saturday, Feb. 23 on an invitation from the Seattle International Leadership Foundation. Meng will be the keynote speaker at ILF’s 2013 Seattle Advisory Board Inauguration.

That morning, she will also be participating in the Chinese Information and Service Center’s 4th annual Lunar New Year Walkathon. The event will take place at Bailey Gatzert Elementary School running from 9 a.m. until noon. The three-mile walk will raise funds to help CISC accomplish its mission of helping Asian immigrants successfully make the transition to a new life, while keeping older generations in touch with their heritage.

Registration for the walk is $15, and donations are currently being accepted through the CISC website. (end)
