Buy your ticket to our third annual auction gala, “A Magical Night in Cambodia”. On Saturday, August 4 at the Scottish Rite Center, guests can bid on fabulous oral and silent auction items, enjoy delicious, traditional Cambodian food and experience unique, cultural entertainment, all while helping children in need. Guests also have the option of purchasing a partnership package this year. Come join in an evening of goodwill, culture and community!
Last year’s auction helped raise funds that put the finishing touches on GLEF’s first school. The Ang School in Battambang Cambodia, unveiled in November of 2011, is now a fully functioning five-classroom building with bathrooms that serves roughly 425 elementary-aged children. The funds raised in 2011 exceeded expectation, but we still need to raise more funds to complete our next schools.
This year, Cambodian Ambassador to the United States H.E. Heng Hem will be at our event. This is the second time The Ambassador has come to Portland for the GLEF Auction. Other special attendees include Ms. Oregon 2012 Libby Crawford, who will be the Master of Ceremonies and Al Jubitz, President of the Jubitz Family Foundation and peace advocate who will make an appearance. Concert Rock Violinist Aaron Meyer will also delight audiences with his performance, and Bonnearin Sin will perform a classical Aspara dance. Silent and oral auction items provide fun and unique experiences, including a ride on a Dragon Boat, a three-night stay at a Lincoln City Beach house and a special ride on a Columbia River Christmas Boat for six–to name a few. Don’t miss out on this year’s magical event!
