Highlights from Wu Yee's Gala 39

On September 15th, 2016, at the War Memorial & Performing Arts Center Green Room, Wu Yee Children’s Services celebrated 39 years of building strong communities, helping families thrive and ensuring a brighter and healthier future for our children at our annual Gala.

Entertainment included music by Golden Gate Philharmonic's youth quartet, "The Kings of Strings," and a very special presentation of a new video showing the great work that happens at our Joy Lok center, produced by Edgar Garcia.
