The Vietnamese American National Gala was conceived by a group of individuals who recognized the lack of Vietnamese American representation at national events in Washington, D.C.. Comprised of individuals who have actively participated in numerous events at the nation's capitol, VANG hopes to bring greater visibility to Vietnamese Americans.
VANG is a national effort to bring Vietnamese Americans together to join with other Asian American communities to celebrate the Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, in May of each year, and to celebrate three decades of progress and achievements made by Vietnamese Americans. In addition, VANG will gather over four hundred (400) distinguished guests (approximately 200 prominent Vietnamese Americans from all around the country, a hundred corporate sponsors and a hundred elected officials and federal staff) to honor the accomplishments of distinguished individuals and organizations throughout the United States.
