Tsunami Relief Benefit Focuses on Rebuilding Schools in Thailand
CARSON, Calif. – CSUDH Professor of Teacher Education Richard Gordon worked on a project in Thailand just months before the December 2004 tsunami struck. Compelled to return to Thailand to help after the disaster, he identifies three schools that desperately needed assistance: Ban Thap Lamu and Bann Kleok Kak elementary schools, and Ban Nam Khem High School.
Returning to CSUDH, Gordon and others on the CSUDH campus – Associated Students, Inc. and the Asian Pacific Faculty & Staff Assoc. – partnered with Kasetsart University Alumni Assoc., USA, which represents graduates now living in the United States from a multi-campus university in Thailand, to raise funds for the rebuilding of the Thailand schools.
Together, they have been raising funds that will make a difference in the lives of the children left behind by the tsunami. A culminating event in this process is an evening of music and performance at the James Armstrong Theater in Torrance – all the proceeds will be deposited into the fund, and a check will be personally delivered to each of the schools.
Included with the price of a ticket for the Armstrong Theater benefit is a pre-event Thai and Asian cuisine in the theater ’s patio.
