Ascend Seattle 2016 Gala 

EVENT DESCRIPTION
Ascend is excited to invite Rich Cho, the Executive Vice President and General Manager Basketball Operations for the Charlotte Hornets - home of Jeremy Lin during the 2016 season. A native of Burma who immigrated to the United States in 1968, Rich became the first Asian American General Manager in American major league sports when he served as GM of the Portland Trail Blazers from 2010-2011. Prior to Portland, he served as 10 seasons as Assistant General Manager to the Seattle SuperSonics/Oklahoma City Thunder, fighting his way into the NBA making minimum wage as an Intern while earning a law degree at Pepperdine University.

While Rich interned for the Seattle Supersonics making minimum wage, he knew he had to stand out. Rich recalled, “I’d better be the first one in the office and the last one to leave.” How many people do you know who would do that to follow their passion? How many people are willing to flip the script and blaze new trails for future generations of Asian Americans? Buy your tickets now for Ascend's 2016 Gala on what promises to be an unforgettable evening.
