Dinner to help Cambodian children

BY ALECIA PINNER


RESIDENTS of Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula are invited to a dinner of spiritual awakening at which they can help raise money to provide food, education and support to needy Cambodian children.

Inspirational guess: Venerable Somnieng Hoeurn
The evening is being organised by local group Rice for Cambodia Australia. The organisation was formed in 2004, after its founders visited Cambodia.

They visited an orphanage in Angkor Wat and saw a need to help orphans and vulnerable children.

They began providing a tonne of rice per month to one orphanage and have since expanded to support three non-government organisations in Cambodia.

Guest of honour at the dinner will be Cambodia spiritual leader and the founder of the Life and Hope Association, Venerable Somnieng Hoeurn.
 
The event will be held on Thursday at the Kon Thai Restaurant, 481 Nepean Highway, Frankston. The dinner is $45 per person, which includes a Thai banquet and a glass of wine or soft drink.
