The Heart of a Young Entrepreneur

Riley Burgess is a 9 year old who not only goes to school by day, plays the guitar by night and builds carpentry projects on weekends, but he is also an emerging young entrepreneur.

His mom Jennifer Burgess told us that Riley wanted to make paper snowflakes because he was “looking for a way to make money for himself.”  However, as soon as Riley heard about the Children of Vietnam Benevolent Foundation, Riley immediately increased the asking price for each snowflake (from 3cents each) and has donated all the money earned to help the children in Vietnam.

We are so touched by his compassion.  This young entrepreneur is already making a difference in the world! Thank you Riley!

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.
