Linh’s Cooking Lesson

Linh’s Cooking Lesson

There is an intricate art to Vietnamese cooking, and it would take a person who lives and breathe the aromas of Vietnam to be able to make a meal that captures the true essence of the country. So, it’s not everyday that you get a great Vietnamese chef like our very own Linh Kim Truong come into your kitchen to walk you through the steps in creating an authentic Vietnamese home-cooked meal.

Kim and Richard Wagner, whose generous bid on this silent auction event item had contributed to the success of our first annual fundraiser, won this great opportunity.  And they could not resist inviting their close friends Scott and Darlene Comer to join in on this unique experience. Susan and Sharla were Linh’s helpers.

It was indeed a most memorable and delicious evening!

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.
