The World Service Committee will be holding its annual dinner and silent auction to benefit the Face-to-Face Aids Project that runs the Boeung Kok School in Cambodia. This school inspires a love of learning in underprivileged children at risk while fostering their excitement for learning. Some 60 plus boys and girls attend four classes daily. There is a kindergarten and a music class, plus the children are taught hygiene, ethics and social skills. Meals and uniforms are provided. Our church donations cover at least 75% of their yearly costs. As a key mission of the World Service Committee is education, we feel that this is a very important project.
Cocktails and appetizers will be served at 5:30 pm in the Lounge. The silent auction will offer restaurant gift certificates and home cooked dinners you won't want to miss out on. Ken Wong, the founder of Face-to-Face, will give a presentation at 6:15 pm, to be followed by dinner, catered by Paul Michael's Café of Kew Gardens, that will begin at 6:30 pm in Room 102. The menu includes chicken marsala, eggplant parmesan, baked lasagna, plus other favorites. The cost is $40 per person. Ticket sales will begin in early April at both 9:00 and 11:00 am coffee hours. Reservations may be made by calling the church office, at 718-268-6704. Please come out to support this very worthy cause.
