Atlanta, GA – Non-profit organization Go Eat Give will host an educational evening celebrating Korea for Atlanta area residents to raise cross-cultural awareness and support small NGOs around the world on Wednesday September 25, 2013. Go Eat Give is proud to bring its monthly Destination dinner event to local Korean restaurant, Woo Nam Jeong Stone Bowl House in Norcross, GA. The evening’s festivities will include a family-style dinner, an inspiring local comedian and a traditional Korean musical performance.
Stone Bowl House owner Young Hui Han, affectionately known as Grandma, will prepare a phenomenal menu featuring Goon Mandu, Bulgogi and Jap Che for guests. In addition to the sweet and spicy cuisine, curious Atlanta residents thirsting for knowledge of other cultures will be sure to enjoy enlightened conversations with like-minded people. Go Eat Give is delighted to announce that speaker and comedian, Kimyung Kim, will be performing. Korean born Kim is a youth motivational speaker and spoken word artist with an entrepreneurial spirit. As a former at-risk teen, then a middle school teacher, Kim has spoken to youths across the country. Kim’s performance will be followed with a traditional Korean drum rendition by Atlanta Korean Cultural Center Team Leader, Justin Dongkyun Ko. Educational information and tourism/promotional pamphlets provided by the Korean Tourism Organization’s American office in New York City will also be available to those who attend.
Go Eat Give’s Executive Director, Sucheta Rawal, has organized the evening. Rawal explains her motivation, stating, “Not everyone has the opportunity to travel to Korea, but through Go Eat Give Destination Korea we want to offer that experience to Atlanta residents, if only for an evening. We have such a diversity of restaurants and cultures in our own backyard, but we don’t always pay attention to them.”
According to the US 2010 Census the Asian population represents 3.1% of Atlanta area residents, but also represents 4.4% of Atlanta business owners. This key demographic is influential in a growing city. Through programs and events like Destination Korea, Go Eat Give is connecting people, places and palates – not only educating locals about a foreign country but also introducing them to their neighbors. This strengthens a diverse and expanding community and counteracts detrimental stereotypes.
Tickets for the event are thirty-six dollars and include dinner, tax, tips, speaker and entertainment. Tickets may be purchased at: https://destinationkorea.eventbrite.com A portion of the proceeds will benefit the organization Go Eat Give which strives to raise awareness of different cultures throughout the world.
