The Annual Lotus Ball is not only a time for celebration and recognition, but also to raise funds for the AARC Nonprofit to support the development of community protocols and programming for Austin’s Asian American Community.  With the continued support of our donors and sponsors, the AARC Nonprofit is poised to provide essential community programs, while also serving as a bridge between the City of Austin and the Asian American Community.

The Asian Image Award was created to recognize the artistic and intellectual contributions of Asian Americans to Austin. The creative contributions of Asian Americans has changed Austin’s physical and cultural landscape. Each year we try to recognize the efforts of distinguished Asians in Austin
