The 14th APEX Annual Awards Gala is an annual celebration in which APEX honors and raises the visibility of prominent Asian Pacific Americans in the spheres of professional leadership, community service, the arts, and entertainment: all integral parts of APEX’s 14 years of commitment to the empowered individual and the community at large.

We present this celebration to showcase our achievements not only to our members and peers, but also to our more corporate sponsors and community leaders. The event is the culmination of our accomplishments to those we work closest with, and to recognize exemplary individuals who have significantly supported the Asian American community.

It is extremely important as a community to come together and create platform and opportunities to raise more leaders in the private and public sector. Come and find out who9s who and who9s doing what in the Asian Pacific American community here in Southern California as we fundraise for our organization!

While co-starring as the charismatic and manipulative Daric Loo in Justin Lin9s breakout indie feature "Better Luck Tomorrow," Fan also starred in, co-produced, and co-wrote the racy 17-minute short subject, "The Quest For Length," one of the surprise hits of the festival. Fan most recently wrapped up the mockumentary comedy "Finishing the Game," directed by Justin Lin, as the character Breeze Loo, who auditions for the role of Bruce Lee.
