On April 26, 2022, the Sacramento chapter of the Asian Real Estate Association of America met at King Palace Restaurant to celebrate its Asian heritage and install new directors, board members and advisors for next year. The event was a joyous one, as AREAA members and community partners enjoyed the opportunity to go out and celebrate it, after enduring a few years of the Covid-19 pandemic. The event included a twelve-course meal, an awards auction, music and dancing.
It is important to note that the event was sponsored by Wells Fargo, Emerald, Home Mortgage, US Bank, Big Valley Mortgage, Chase, Loan Depot, The BNKR Group Cross Country Mortgage Group, Rube, Prime Lending, Loan Factory and MetroList.
Outstanding political leaders in attendance included Elk Grove Councilor Stephanie Nguyen, City Council member Pat Hume and Sacramento Mayor Pro Tem Eric Guerra. The event was hosted by Van Tieu of Channel 10 News. Meanwhile, Barry Brome of the Greater Sacramento Economic Council was the keynote speaker. AREAA National President Amy Kong was also present.

Afterwards, President Vaneesa Lam, Vice President Tuan Tran, former President Malyna Phan and Advisory Board member Samantha Tov helped lead the festivities. This included calling the winners of the draw. Raffle prizes included gift certificates for breweries and restaurants, Chanel perfume and Johnny Walker Black Label. At one point, President Vaneesa Lam performed a solo on stage playing a Chinese guzheng zither.
A twelve-course Chinese meal was served. Some of the highlights of the meal included lobster, prawns with honey and nuts, steamed chicken with ginger chives sauce and meat cooked with vegetables. Bleeding was also available to everyone. All attendees seemed to enjoy the food and the festivities. At the end of the night, the deejay put on dance music and people migrated from the tables to the dance floor.
The event, according to AREAA Sacramento Chapter President Vaneesa Lam, has been completely sold out. With a sold-out event, great food, entertainment entertainment and the fact that over $ 2000 was also raised for the AREAA Foundation (501c3 non-profit), the 2022 Annual Installation Gala could undoubtedly be considered a great success.
