Dec (74)

Every December, Santa comes to visit the students at the Calmar Elementary School for a hearty meal as part of the PTA’s annual Christmas fundraiser for the school. This year, the students and parents of the CES extended their generosity to the CVBF by donating half of their 50/50 funds to helping the children of Vietnam.

Thank you Patti Goudreau, president of the CES PTA, for organizing this lovely event and for thinking of us. And a great big thanks to all the Calmar elementary students and parents for showing us your amazing Christmas spirit.

Thank you!
We are so grateful for your support at our 4th Annual Fundraising Gala on Sept 24th. Together, we raised over $45,000 for the Children of Vietnam Benevolent Foundation! It brings us great joy to know that we can continue helping more children go to school, grant more scholarships, buy more beds, deliver more playground equipment, supply more books/pencils, bicycles, wheelchairs, hearing aids, possibly help build another school and so much more! It was not a small feat this year as we staged the first ever full capacity banquet dedicated to authentic Vietnamese Cuisine, something that is rarely if ever done anywhere in Canada. It took a powerhouse team of talented chefs, dedicated volunteers, generous businesses, and beautiful guests to make the night an incredible success. We thank you!
