ABAIE Health2Wealth Expo
On June 10th, our sister chamber held their annual Health2Wealth Expo. The Asian Business Association Inland Empire hosted a fantastic event with a plethora of vendors and entertainment. From dance to karate performances, there were no shortages of fun and talent! Many vendors were there, including New York Life, US Bank, Wells Fargo, and many more! One of our members, Mariano Padilla, was a vendor there and he handed out samples (gallons) of his filtered water! It was a great opportunity to network and learn about all the ways to become healthier. There were also workshops throughout the day. These workshops included information on reverse mortages, medicare and real estate tax options for seniors to name a few. It was all very informative and this event was definitely worth going to!
