On September 7th, 2013, we concluded the Celebration of Hope tour in the San Francisco Bay Area at the Webster’s House in Palo Alto, California. The day before, club member Ethan Tsai performed at two retirement centers in the south bay with the New Hope orphans. When we arrived to the Webster’s House, the place was nicely set up. We ran our normal repertoire, after which the dancers received a huge applause. Matt interviewed multiple dancers during the performance. Most of the children interviewed wanted to be doctors in the future, since the healthcare system is extremely poor in Cambodia, so they want to help. The audience was intrigued by their stories, and even by their hairstyles.
After the performance, club members Cherry and Caitlin had to say goodbye forever to these lovely children. It was hard because they had formed a real friendship among them. They exchanged email addresses so they can keep in touch in the future. Hopefully, Children in Need members can perform in Cambodia and meet them again.
