Seattle Chinese Athletic Association (SCAA) will host Hopes, Hopes and Dreams, the 50th Anniversary Celebration, on October 20, 2018, at the Museum of Flight.

SCAA was formed in 1968 by a group of Seattle Asian community leaders to provide Asian youth an opportunity to play basketball with other youth within the Asian community.  Seattle in 1968 had no organization established that would bring together Asian youth and families in a youth focused activity.

The idea to form this type of organization was first conceived in the basement of Dr. Eugene Ko’s home in 1968.  At the time the Chinese community was starting to expand to other neighborhoods in the greater Seattle community, outside of “Chinatown” now known as the “Chinatown/International District”.  Seattle in 1968 had no organization established that would bring together Asian youth and families in a youth focused activity.  With the idea Dr. Ko initiated and with the help and determination of his friends, SCAA began and an organized youth basketball organization now existed for our Asian youth.

After positively affecting thousands of youth in the greater Seattle region for the past 50 years, SCAA is looking for assistance in helping promote or cover the SCAA’s 50th Anniversary. The celebration will take place at The Museum of Flight in Tukwila, beginning at 6:00 PM and ending at 10:00 PM. The emcee for the evening is Harold Taniguchi, Director of King County Department of Transportation, additionally King County councilman Larry Gossett will be offering his words of appreciation. There will be an auction at the event.
