VISION
Celebrate our pride as Americans of Vietnamese
descent
Celebrate Asian Pacific American Heritage Month
Honor Vietnamese Americans and non-Vietnamese
Americans alike, and organizations for their
contributions to the Vietnamese American
community and America
Promote education, leadership,
and volunteerism
The Vietnamese American National Gala™ (VANG™)
is a national celebration of Vietnamese
heritage and pride, which is held in conjunction
with the Asian Pacific American Heritage Month,
a month-long celebration in May of each year,
which honors the achievements of Asian
Pacific Americans and recognizes their
contributions to America.
VANG™ is the premier Vietnamese American gathering
in the nation. This Oscar®-like festivity exhibits the
Vietnamese American Community’s celebration
of professional achievements and community
contributions. The formal black-tie dinner gala
brings together hundreds of elected officials,
corporate sponsors, community and
business leaders, and Vietnamese
American luminaries – all who come
together to share one common vision:
To honor America’s best
and brightest.

VANG 20
This year, VANG has engaged uNAVASA to select 20 student leader
from around the country to attend VANG.
We fundamentally believe that these students are the next generation of
leaders. Thus we wanted to provide the students with an opportunity to
participate on a national level and network with the VANG’s sponsors,
speakers, celebrities and notable leaders.
With access to these leaders, the students shall be able to engage these
great contacts and bring the resources back to their local communities.
