The cultural diversity in the Bay Area makes it one of the best places to live in the world. Cambodian-Americans are certainly significant pieces of that cultural tapestry. The preservation of the Cambodian culture is, therefore, vital. It is paramount not only to the collective community, but also to the Cambodian community, and the individual Cambodians themselves.

Thanks to All Sponsors of Cambodian New Year Festival

Dear Community,

Based on the U.S. Census 2000, Cambodian-American population in the Bay Area - San Francisco, Oakland, San Jose - totaled approximately 10,500, but mostly concentrated in Oakland and San Jose. Among those in the region celebrating Cambodian New Year Festival 2008 are doctors, lawyers, engineers, college professors, teachers, small business owners, CEO/president of corporation, and military officers. This represents a small but integral part of society.

GIVE BACK TO COMMUNITY

Many contribute their talents and their times to organize and coordinate during event planning and preparation. Others contribute financial by taking part as event sponsors. This year the San Jose Cambodian Cultural Dance Troupe will be collaborating with Khmer Angkor Dance Troupe from Oakland to put a full schedule performance during the evening program. And for the first time, the evening entertainment will include traditional Cambodian ensembles from Angkor era apparel to modern fashion.

On behalf of the Cambodian New Year Festival Committee 2008, we would like to thank all of the sponsors for their financial support of the Cambodian New Year Festival 2008.

Best Regards,

Co-Chairs Mr. Chanthoeun To & Miss. Kara Uy
