On Saturday May 28, ACSCA hosted its 6th Annual African Awards Dinner Gala at the Royal Palace Banquet Hall in Burnaby. The dinner was attended by government official, dignitaries, community leaders as well as community members. The soldout event was full of cultural entertainment, tons of food and music.
