2014 is the Year of the Horse. People born in the Year of the Horse are clever, kind, animated and energetic. Although they sometimes talk too much, they are cheerful, perceptive, talented and love to be in the centre of a crowd. They are popular among friends, active at work and have a deft sense of humour.

The CVBF members were honoured to take part in their first Vietnamese Lunar New Year celebration held annually at the Edmonton City Hall. It was a wonderful opportunity for the Vietnamese community and organizations to be introduced to our Foundation.  The many representatives from these businesses and organizations were so kind and welcoming to us.

University students from the UofA Vietnamese Students’ Association volunteered their time to help us out. Susan did a fabulous job organizing a craft table for the multitude of children who came for the festive games and arts & crafts. Team members Linh, Nhung, Rebecca and Thelicia were also on hand to help. It was a delight to see how happy the children were to get treats after their creative work. The afternoon was filled with musical and cultural dance performances.

We were so moved to be a part of such a beautiful and joyous event. Hopefully, with the increased awareness, our Foundation will have increased support to help the children in Vietnam.

We wish everyone a joyous, healthy and prosperous New Year!

Thank you!
Dear friends, Thank you so much again to you, dear family, friends and honoured guests, for making our 5th Annual Fundraising Gala on Sept 30/17 a huge success. Together we were able to raise over $40,000! We are truly grateful to everyone for your great support so that we can carry on with our work to improve the lives of impoverished children and orphans in Vietnam. Our event would not be possible without our amazing MC Dr. Cecile Phan and incredible local artists - Native Performer Amanda Lamothe, the VSUE (Vivian, Natalie, Van, Katelynn, Teddy, Hardy, Ken&Henry, Minh-Thuy) Dancers, the Truong Lac Hong school little dancers (Celina, Mai, Hong, Angela), and Michelle&Lily Dang. Our silent auction would not be possible without the kindness and generosity of local businesses, and our Arizona Getaway raffle was made possible by the generosity of Mr& Mrs Heuver. And thank you to all our volunteers for all your hard work and dedication to making our evening a great success.
