24 Feb – The Organization of Chinese Americans ushered in the Lunar New Year with a celebration of the Year of the Ram (or Goat), an animal symbolizing “more room for diplomacy,” shared Karen Yee. “We need that now.”

With close to 400 guests filtering into the Syria Shriners Center on Feb. 21, the evening brought together OCA prez Kai Lin, honorary chair Dr. Savio L-Y. Woo, and master of ceremoniesJulienne Shaw — also the first Asian American to win the Miss Pennsylvania Teen USA Title in 2002.


It was Shaw’s involvement that paved the way for the support from subsequent beauty queens, which this year included Miss USA 2013 Erin Brady Capasso and Miss Teen USA 2012 Logan West, as well as 2015 titleholders Ashley Golebiewski, Savannah Giammarco, Gretchen Reece, Kassidy Tharp, Jackie Croft, Alex Marek, Andrea Mucino, Cora King, Elizabeth Cardillo, and Jasmine Daniels.
