Benefit For Cambodian Charities This Weekend At Chapter One
Us Weeklings are supporters of restaurants helping those less fortunate-- whether it be a donation of food, money or time. When they can incorporate a social element, even better. So for those seeking weekend entertainment, Chapter One in Santa Ana has a worthy option.
Festivities occur this Sunday as they present two showings of the film Two Shadows, about a Long Beach native going home to Cambodia to better understand her culture and herself. Showtimes are at 5 p.m. and 8 p.m in their Red Room.
Director Greg Cahill and actors from the movie will be on hand to answer questions. Local charity Pepper Project will also be there selling Cambodian crafts and specialties like gourmet Kampot peppercorns. A portion of what they sell goes to support rural school children, the victims of land mines and disabled young people.
Event admission is $10 and includes both the flick and a "Holiday in Cambodia" cocktail. Additional food and beverages will be available to purchase. If it was up to us, we'd stay for dinner.
