Event description

GYOPO invites you to attend our 5th Annual Chuseok Benefit brunch presented by CJ on September 30, 2023, from 11 AM to 2 PM PDT. Hosted by Helen Park. This year’s honoree is director, writer, and producer, Randall Park.  

Chuseok, the Korean harvest festival, is a time of coming together to celebrate abundance, express gratitude, and strengthen bonds of solidarity. Join us in marking this significant Chuseok celebration while also supporting GYOPO – a collective of diasporic Korean cultural producers and arts professionals. GYOPO is dedicated to fostering progressive, critical, and intergenerational discussions, building community partnerships, and providing educational programs both in Los Angeles and beyond. All proceeds from the benefit go towards GYOPO’s year-round free public programming and community.

Tickets are $350/single, $600/pair, and $250 each for three or more (the price of each ticket minus $100 is your tax-deductible donation). Children between ages 3-12 are free but require RSVP, activities by Drawwing Cabinet will be provided. The venue address will be provided upon ticket purchase. Tickets are expected to sell out, so please purchase them soon to ensure attendance. Tickets will not be sold on-site. If you are unable to attend, please consider making a tax-deductible contribution here. Contact development@gyopo.us with any inquiries related to tickets or your donation.
