HCM CITY— Saigon Children’s Charity CIO raised US$216,224 for disadvantaged children through the Saigon Summer Ball it held last Saturday (September 15) in HCM City.

Since its inception in 2009, the annual ball has been known as a major charity event, featuring fine dining and wine parings, phenomenal artworks, impressive live music performances, and several exclusive auctions.

It has so far raised around $1 million.

The event supports the charity’s work like building schools, child development scholarships, vocational training, and special needs education programmes.

Saigon Children’s Charity CIO was founded in 1992 to help disadvantaged Vietnamese children get an education and a fairer start in life.—VNS
