Taste of Laos 2016 was an outstanding success thanks to SKL supporters! The dinner was sold out which meant, unfortunately, we had to turn away some of our long-time attendees who hoped to be there. We would like to thank our many ticket sellers, especially Chantai Taillefer and Pasith Phommarath for their hard work and great success in inviting guests to the event.
We are grateful to Savanhthong and Amy Thoudsanikone for brewing delicious coffee beans from their plantation in Laos for dinner guests. We also appreciate their donation of the proceeds from the sale of coffee beans that evening. Their presence added a unique aspect to the dinner.
Special thanks to Cho Venevongsa, Roger Wilkinson, John Loewen, and their friends and family members for their presence, enthusiasm and colourful presentation of the upcoming Wasabi Charity Golf Tournament.
Words cannot express our gratitude to the kitchen volunteers. They are generous with their time and effort, and their culinary talents bring our supporters back year after year, hungry for more of the delectable Lao cuisine. Kudos to our colourful volunteer servers with their traditional silk outfits who worked tirelessly throughout the evening making sure nobody left hungry!
Thank you for returning year after year to support SKL's Taste of Laos event. The net proceeds of the dinner always go to the construction of a school in Laos, this year, in Ban Na Chantai. You make it all possible. You inspire and encourage us.
