CAPE 2012 Poker Tournament – A Huge Success!

We were SOLD OUT for the CAPE 2012 Poker Tournament “I AM…ALL IN” held on Saturday, November 17 at the glamorous W Hotel in Hollywood. CAPE would like to express sincere gratitude to all who attended our event in support of our new I AM role model campaign. Special thanks to our sponsors and major donors including BBCN Bank, Commerce Casino, Hite/Jinro, Verizon, and Creative Artist Agency just to name a few. Without their partnership and generous donations, the poker tournament and after-party at Drai’s would not have been possible.

Philip Wang of Wong Fu Productions won the poker tournament and took home the much-coveted grand prize of a premium VIP Lakers Package. Heidi Woan, wife of Linkin Park’s Joe Hahn, took home the second place prize of a luxurious spa package from Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery, Inc. and the third place prize of an iPad mini gift package complete with iTunes gift card was won by Kang Ahn. Congratulations to all the winners!

CAPE Congratulates Board Member Christopher Chen

CAPE congratulates board member Christopher Chen on being honored as one of Variety’s entertainment industry leaders 36 and under.

Chris was identified as one of Hollywood’s new creative leaders who will steer the industry in the years to come. His most recent project was producing the feature film LOOPER with Endgame Entertainment.Chris played a critical role in negotiating a deal with China’s DMG Entertainment to help finance the sci-fit thriller as a Chinese co-production. Chris recognized early on that China is the world’s fastest-growing film market and through Chris’s influence, Endgame will continue to seek opportunities with a China component.

Endgame is also completing a documentary with Jeremy Lin, the Asian-American NBC phenom. Chris states, “We began shooting the film two years ago, while he was a rookie with the Golden State Warriors and have been shoting with him ever since.” The film will capture Jeremy’s sudden rise from obscurity to fame.
