LSC International Potluck 

 On March7 2013, around one hundred De Anza college students and faculty members came to the LSC International lunch.


 A variety of flavorful dishes from different countries that our guests brought made the lunch a colorful feast.




 While tasting delicious food, many students enjoyed conversation with their peers in our cozy rooms.


 A lovely performance of Dooyeong Kwon, who sang a Korean love song, was a big surprise to many of the LSC guests. And a bit later, students had fun, participating in the LSC ruffle and winning “You choose prizes”: books, movie tickets, artwork, etc.


A lot of thanks to all of you for coming to the LSC International lunch and sharing delicious food, conversation and fun spirit! Special thanks for making donations and helping us to keep the LSC strong!


Thank you very much for your support!!!

The LSC's 10th anniversary Celebration and Raffle Event (June15, 2012) was a huge success thanks to all your support. We'd especially like to thank our volunteers who spent their precious time helping us organize the event, preparing the delicious food, wrapping up the raffle prizes, decorating and setting up the chairs and tables, taking beautiful photos, and cleaning up the center after the event was over.

Also, special thanks go to our wonderful volunteer performers, headed by Miki’s jazz band (Miki, Ryosuke, and Eric), and William, who lifted everyone's spirit up with their refreshing and lovely tunes - we were truly delighted by your performances!

Finally, we'd like to acknowledge the courage and determination to overcome fear of communicating in a different language that our two student speakers demonstrated during the event. Yuki and Koko, thank you very much for showing everyone the value of the LSC and its programs. 

And of course, many thanks to all of you who contributed to our fundraising efforts by buying raffle tickets!  Congratulations to the winners!

Through this event, we were able to raise $ 3,000. We are truly grateful to all those who participated in the event; the event couldn't have been a success without you. The  fund will be used to maintain and improve the LSC's programs in these difficult times.
