The APEX Awards Gala is an event where the Asian Pacific Islander American community comes together to celebrate the organization’s past and present accomplishments. This annual fundraising benefit also honors the contributions of prominent Asian Pacific Islander Americans in the arts, community and corporate/business sector. The Awards Gala allows APEX to recognize these accomplishments that others have made throughout the course of the year while bringing together APEX members, supporters, community leaders, elected officials and corporations.

Typically, this black-tie formal event brings out 400-500 community, business and political leaders as well as other like-minded individuals and features live entertainment, dinner, networking, a silent auction, VIP reception, and after party.
