Every year, the Northwest Asian Weekly Foundation presents an event that recognizes Asian American pioneers in a certain field, people who are passionate trailblazers in their careers, who are paving the way for the next generation. This year's theme is social entrepreneurship. For $65, there will be a multi-course dinner and awards ceremony. (Note: After Sept. 25, tickets will be $70. On Oct. 1, tickets will be $85 for walk-ins.) There will be a pre-dinner cocktail hour. There will be an awards portion during dinner where pioneers come onstage to accept their award. The dress is business to semi-formal.
