mr. hyphen in the spotlight

Check out this Associated Press story (that got picked up by Yahoo's front page) on the 2009 Mr. Hyphen competition, an Asian American community celebration: 'Mr. Hyphen' Redefines Image of Asian-American Men.

At the end of the evening, one worthy man emerged, and Pahole Sookkasikon took home the crown, as well as $1,000 for his chosen nonprofits, the Thai-American Scholarship Fund and the Asian American Donor Program.

The coolest thing about the article is that it gives Pahole the chance to call attention to marrow donor efforts like Project Michelle and Helping Janet, which has registered more than 1,200 potential, but still needs help.
