CU Denver Vietnamese Student Association’s 2nd Annual CPP Charity Gala

By: Amanda Ta

CU Denver Vietnamese Student Association (VSA) proudly presented their “Just Keep Swimming” themed 2nd Annual Collective Philanthropy Project (CPP) Charity Gala on Friday, March 6th to benefit FoodAid.Compassion, a non-profit organization that seeks to enhance the quality of life of the people in Vietnam by providing clean water filtration systems to the communities of Vietnam. VSA is part of a larger organization called SWUVSA (South-West Union of Vietnamese Student Associations) consisting of Colorado, Utah, Arizona, Nevada, and New Mexico and both are united under an umbrella organization called UNAVSA (Union of North American Vietnamese Student Associations). A beneficiary is chosen each year for the CPP so the Vietnamese-student and community organizations could collaborate in working towards a charitable cause. The gala was a cultural night consisting of a 4-course catered meal by Viet’s Restaurant, dessert by New Saigon Bakery, silent art auction with pieces done by CU artists Anthony Le and Khoa Sinclair, and performances by local talent such as Academy of Raw and all the way from Seattle, Vietnamese-American singer Vi Khanh. As a single student organization and with the help from our generous community members, CU Denver VSA raised $3,362 to be donated to FoodAid.Compassion! This is double the amount donated by CU Denver and over half of what the SWUVSA region collectively raised last year. CU Denver VSA expresses their deepest thanks for the sponsors, community supporters, and VSA members that made this event a success.
