From all of us at SASF: Happy Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month

May is Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month in the United States. It is a time to pay tribute to the generations of Asian and Pacific Islanders who have enriched America's history and are instrumental in its future success.

We are proud to be an AAPI-founded and led organization that serves our local community in Sacramento, California, USA. We believe it's important to honor our heritage through our cultural traditions, like our Basketball programs or Crab Feeds, while also embracing and creating new programs that help support and bring our community together today, like through our teen mental health programs in SPARK and Strive for Strength. We thank you for your continued support over the years!

Happy Asian/Pacific Heritage Month!

1 Degree of Separation captivates audience--SASF's Teen Mental Health & Resiliency Program, April 23, 2022

SASF’s Suicide Prevention Awareness Reflection Awareness (SPARK) Program launched its first in-person event. After virtual events in each of the past two years, we welcomed the opportunity to bring our message of hope and openly talking about anxiety, depression, and suicide with the support of the local chapter of the National Alliance for Mental Illness.

Raw, poignant and at time humorous, 1 Degree of Separation--Brad Bonar, Diego Curiel, Drew Shafer and Aurora Singh--shared their personal experiences with anxiety, depression and suicidal thoughts, giving context to a mental health dilemma that continues to sweep through Sacramento County and the nation.

Held on Saturday, April 23rd, 75 parents, students, teachers, counselors, and administrators found themselves pulled into their heart wrenching experiences. The performers balanced the emotional heaviness of the subject with self-effacing humor, drawing upon the mental adversities they faced over their lives.

SASF's next event is planned for September 24th when SPARK hosts Dr. Rona Hu of Stanford University, who along with her colleagues, will do role playing vignettes on parent-child relationships.


We are extremely grateful to the many individuals, families and businesses who continue to support and donate to the SASF throughout the year. Without your unwavering support, SASF would have had a difficult time surviving the challenges of the past year. Thank you for the following donations received this past month:

  • Steve Hamamoto in memory of Steve Matsuura
  • Janet Quan in memory of Roy Kimura
  • Edna Onodera in memory of Gary Oshita

SASF relies on the generous donations from community members to fund the day-to-day operations of the facility, and the support the sports and youth programs.
