24th Annual Historymakers Awards Gala (2020)

Since its inception in 1997, the Chinese American Museum’s Annual Historymakers Awards Gala embodies the vision of pioneers, dedication of volunteers, and continuous community collaboration in celebrating the Chinese American spirit and stories. Prominently recognized as one of the premiere Chinese American events in Southern California, the Gala honors the achievements of extraordinary individuals and organizations that have made a significant impact or lasting contributions towards the advancement of the Chinese American community in Southern California and beyond.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s Historymakers Awards Gala will be hosted virtually to ensure the safety of our guests and honorees.
