Join us for an evening of great food, extraordinary dancing and the incredible live entertainment of The Sean Fleming Bandto benefit the American Assistance for Cambodia program on Friday, February 25th 7:00pm-11:00pm at Folx Hill Inn, Brookfield, Connecticut! This year's goal is to raise enough money to pay for teaching positions, books, computers and more! The school will be named Newtown Village School, and the primary goal for Two Schools One Song this year is to exceed last year's $26,000 which World Bank meets donations of $13,000 to build the school in Cambodia
The fundraiser concert featuring The Sean Fleming Band is scheduled for February 25 from 7 to 11 pm at the Fox Hill Inn on Federal Road in Brookfield. Tickets for the event cost $75, and all donations to the group are tax deductible. A silent auction and black jack tables will also be at the event.
Last year a group of high school students, called Two Schools One Song, exceeded expectations and raised $15,000 to build a school in Cambodia. Now, with that school under construction, the group is again raising money through an upcoming concert to buy books and other supplies for the school.
After learning about the American Assistance for Cambodia program from their mother last year, then-Newtown High School junior Dan Sclafani and his then-freshman sister Jane asked their friends to help them raise the $13,000 to fund building a school in Cambodia. Through the American Assistance for Cambodia program, the World Bank meets donations of $13,000 to build a school in Cambodia for $26,000. Money raised beyond the original $13, 000 is not matched by the program, but it is used to pay for teaching positions, books, computers, and more.
"In December 2010," reads an announcement for the upcoming fundraiser, "construction began in the province of Kampong Thom in Cambodia with an anticipated completion date of April 2011. The school will have five classrooms with the capacity for 100 students, none of whom have ever attended school..."
Two Schools One Song members Kimmy Gates and Sally Martinelli said the group is looking to raise as much money as they can for the school.
Jane Sclafani said this year's goal is to help the school with all the "extras."
Anyone unable to attend the concert who is interested to donate to the effort can also go to www.cambodiaschools.com and click on Rural School Project. The Newtown Village School is 494.
