On Wednesday September 4th we hosted our first ever Korean Tasty Travel Event and it was a huge success!

Our own kitchen volunteers helped make the dinner under the supervision of our Social Worker summer student Nammi.   Originally from South Korea where she owned her own restaurant AND received a degree in Engineering, she is now living here in Canada and working towards becoming a Social Worker.  Nammi was instrumental in creating the meal and arranging for the wonderful entertainment for the event!

The Room Looked Amazing

We had over 60 people attend the event.

We were very fortunate to have a wonderful display of Korean Traditional Folk paintings by local artist Stella Sook-kyung Song!  The artwork was simply stunning!


Local MLAs Joined Us !

MLA Jackie Lovely, Jon Carson and Lori Sigurdson all came by the centre to enjoy the food and entertainment.





We would like to thank Jay and Prasad of Driverseat Edmonton for sponsoring our Korean event.  We cannot host fun events like this without the kind support of businesses here in Edmonton! We would also like to thank:

  • Artist Stella Sook-kyung Song for donating her beautiful art to be displayed
  • Edmonton Hanbeat Samulnori and Korock Team  for providing the entertainment
  • MP Kelly McCaulley, MLA Jon Carson,  and MLA Lori Sigurdson
  • The numerous volunteers who prepared the wonderful meal and assisted with the running of the event. We couldn’t do it without you.
