The Lao Embassy is hosting an intimate benefit dinner on Thursday, October 26th to help raise funds for the nonprofit Legacies of War, with a noble mission - to rid the tiny Southeast Asian nation of Laos of millions of nearly 80 million unexploded bombs leftover from Vietnam-era U.S. bombings, which still kill and maim villagers today. President Obama became the first U.S. President to visit Laos last summer and to directly acknowledge Legacies of War's efforts. Here's a ABC News video, by journalist Bob Woodruff, about this devastating issue and Legacies of War's work, which featured our Executive Director and Founder Channapha Khamvongsa in the story.
Legacies of War is excited to be joined by Ben Rhodes, President Obama's Deputy National Security Advisor, as our guest speaker. Our guests will also enjoy delicious Lao cuisine prepared by Chef Seng Luangrath, James Beard Finalist and owner of Thip Khao.
The event is by invitation only and non-transferable with a requested gift amount of $500 per person.
