Hae Min Chung Birthday Pic Standard Grill Aug 14 2015

On Friday, August 14, 2015, board and staff members of RFKC and RCKC met at the Standard Grill in Manhattan for a delicious and fun 79th birthday celebration for Elder Hae Min Chung, who is the President of the Research Foundation for Korean Community (RFKC). President Chung's eldest daughter also attended the party.

Over the years, President Chung has worked very hard to help and serve the Korean and Korean-American communities in the New York-New Jersey area. Since immigrating to the U.S. in 1974, he has founded and established a Korean school, worked for the New York City government as an outreach and community coordinator for the NYC Citizenship Program and Office of Immigrant Initiatives, been Chair of the Board of Directors of the Korean American Voters' Council of New York and New Jersey, and been a Co-Chair of the New York Coalition for House Resolution 121 (the "Comfort Women" resolution). In 2013, he received the Vision Award from Korean Community Services, and in 2010, he received Special Congressional Recognition from U.S. Congressman Michael Honda. These are just a few of his many accomplishments and activities.

 We are happy to have been a part of a wonderful celebration for a man who has served the community in a variety of different ways, and we wish President Chung continued good health and prosperity.
