The Korean American Coalition – Los Angeles (KAC) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization established in 1983 to promote the civic and civil rights interests of the Korean American community. KAC endeavors to achieve these goals through education, community organizing, leadership development, and coalition-building with diverse communities.
The Korean BBQ cook-off is partnered with Yelp.com and sponsored by the following companies: California Country Club, the U.S. Census Bureau, The Chadwick, allkpop, Coors Brewing Co., and the Good Samaritan Hospital.
Come eat Korean BBQ from the best BBQ restaurants of K-Town. Entrance is free so come one come all! The best part is, you don’t have to come with your Korean co-worker/friends. There will be various parking lots near the summit, just make sure to use your ears/nose to find us. (shouldn’t be hard) Hope to see you all there
