On Saturday, the Vietnamese Student Association (VSA) is hosting their annual Vietnamese Culture Show. The event is called Đêm Việt Nam (A Night in Vietnam) and is entirely student run. The show features guest performances, as well as 120 students performing eight different dances. This year’s theme is “Write Your Story.” The show will tell a story about an aspiring, young Vietnamese-American writer as Tết, the Vietnamese New Year, approaches. Along the way, he learns that a person’s story is alive in their culture, themselves, and those who are willing to listen.
All the proceeds from the show will be donated to Children of Vietnam, an organization that assists children, families, and communities in breaking the cycle of poverty, disease, and homelessness. The organization also provides immediate aid to children and families in crisis.
Tickets are selling out fast. Come support VSA!
