The Eng Family Interim Office in Los Angeles,
the precursor of the Eng Family Benevolent Association was established in 1974. Currently, our
membership roster numbers over 200, and we are
the “younger” member of Los Angeles’ Chinese
Consolidated Benevolent Association (CCBA).
We regularly appoint two members each to represent our Association on CCBA’s Board of Directors
and the Board of Supervisors.
Our Eng forefathers first settled in Seattle, and the Eng Family Association there was founded in early 20th Century. Later, a large number of Engs moved to New York, engaging in the laundry business. During the 1940s, some began to move to Southern California for its balmy weather.
In the summer of 1972, Bill Lee Ng of Bakersfield and Kai Fan of New York came to Los Angeles to solicit contributions to the Eng’s National Convention held in New York the same year. They conveyed to the Convention the wishes of the Los Angeles Engs to establish a local family association. The Convention resolved to appoint the Western Region Grand President and the San Francisco Headquarter staﬀ to guide the Los Angeles clansmen to bring their wishes to reality. Dr. Jolson Ng was sent to San Francisco to discuss the details. On February 17, 1974, the Los Angeles Eng Family Interim Office was established. The Chairperson and Vice-chair were Eddie Poy and Jolson Ng respectively. An inaugural dinner emceed by Benjamin Ng at Hong Kong Low numbered 33 tables, including over sixty Wongs, which spoke for the close fraternal tie between the Wongs and the Engs.
In 1976, with the help of Mr. Poy Wong, then President of the Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association, we rented one of CCBA’s properties at 938 ½ Chung King Road. Thus, our Association was officially established on the day of our Spring Banquet in April 1977. The first President was Jolson and Shui San Ng the Vice-president. Our monthly meetings have been held continuously without interruption since then.
1977 saw the establishment of the Ladies’ Guild, under the able leadership of May & Ivy. Our ladies were and remain indispensable in providing gourmet dim sum & traditional dishes at the monthly meetings, as well as playing a supportive role wherever and whenever needed. Their eﬀorts are recognized and much appreciated.
In 1978, the Youth Group, led by Peter, was started, with Ben, Raphael, Beverly, and Dorothy actively assisting. Highlight activities were the Halloween & Christmas parties, and the annual picnic co-sponsored with the Ladies’ Guild. We also had sports competitions with the Wong’s Youth Group.
籌款，以十四萬元購得418 Cottage Home街
Back in the days of the Interim Office, our members had already expressed the desire for a permanent home. The second President, Shui San (1979), was the indefatigable force behind making the dream a reality. With the fundraising expertise and support of the Western Region Grand President and now Elder Thomas of San Francisco and Luen Ho, and the enthusiastic support and fundraising eﬀorts by devoted local members as well as members in other cities, we purchased our permanent home at 418 Cottage Home Street.
April 1983 saw the establishment of the Scholarship Committee. At the annual picnic, scholarships and plaques are awarded to children of male and female members who submit school reports showing “A” grades. The money comes out of interest earned from the Scholarship Fund.
In 1991, then-President Ed, and Vice-Presidents Ben and Larry raised over two hundred thousand dollars to construct a new, air-conditioned, the two-story building with modern interior decorations. Pang lent his engineering expertise to act as inspector during construction. What a diﬀerence between the new building and the interim office!
In July 1993 our Chorus was organized to augment the entertainment program at the National Convention held in Los Angeles that same year.
During the 6th World Eng Convention held in Seattle in 1999, our Association proposed setting up a website to facilitate communication between all the Eng Associations worldwide. After 15 years, our online network includes not only Eng Associations in the U.S. and Canada, but also China, Taiwan, and other Southeast Asian countries such as Malaysia, Indonesia, Myanmar, and the Philippines. Much credit is due to our Elder Ed and his son, Steven, who serves as the webmasters.

Past presidents who were elected Western Region Grand Presidents of the National Eng Association include Ed (1994-1995), Benjamin (2000-2001), Peter (2004-2005), Tenny Ng (2010-2011) and Wayne S.C.

We welcome non-members to our functions, especially our brothers and sisters from the Wong Family Association, such as the annual “Parents Day” luncheon hosted by NGG when 30 or more Wongs would attend. The annual Spring Banquet always serves as an apt occasion for socialization, networking, and renewal of friendship, with 100 or more community leaders attending each year.
