The Angkor Dance Troupe is having a dinner and show for family and friends
on Saturday, April 21 to celebrate the Cambodian new year. This event will be
held at Sompao Meas Hall, 450 Chelmsford Street, in Lowell. Tickets for adults
are $25, and tickets for children, students, and seniors are $15.
This is a casual affair, and dinner will be served Cambodian family style.
Our dancers will also perform, including some of our newest, younger dancers!
The evening will start at 6:00 p.m., dinner will be served around 7:00 p.m., and
expect that the show will start around 8:00 p.m. For the late-night partying
and dancing crowd, they're planning to have a DJ after the show, and the evening
will end around midnight.
If you're interested in joining the fun, please call the dance troupe's office
at (978) 275-1823 or e-mail the founder and program director, Tim Thou, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are reader of this blog, you are probably aware of the campaign I ran to raise money for Leng Sopharath's college tuition using the ChipIn fundraising widget. Leng Sopharath is one of 19 college students being sponsored for college through a program of the Sharing Foundation,
an ngo that works directly with local officials, orphanages, and NGOs
in Cambodia to identify and carry out projects which improve the lives
