Adopt Cambodian Family!
On Saturday, March 21st, from 5 to 9pm, there will be a gala event in St. John’s Episcopal Church in Olympia for the “Adopt a Cambodian Family” program. You are especially invited!
We hope you can come! Please bring family and friends—this will be a fun evening with Cambodian dancers, a delicious Cambodian dinner, and Tithia’s report with photos of his family’s recent trip.
Tickets are $25.00 for adults, available at the door. If you cannot come, you can still contribute to this year’s fund, of course–$15/month to support an impoverished Cambodian family in desperate need of support.
We are currently proceeding our project in Battambang, Cambodia.
