Schools Helping Schools Fundraiser Features the Story of a Survivor Marshall Kim: Scarsdale parent Marshall Kim, who is a survivor from the Cambodian genocide will be telling his story on Friday February 4 at 7:00 pm in the Scarsdale High School Little Theater. The event is hosted by the student organization Schools Helping Schools, and will feature musical performances in addition to Kim’s riveting story of his experience living through one of the worst human tragedies of the twentieth century. There will be a question and answer session afterwards.

Tickets for admission may be purchased at the door, and cost $5 for students and $10 for adults. Free drinks will be provided, and baked goods will also be sold at the event. All proceeds will go towards sustainable farming efforts and a new literacy program at the Children’s Development Village in Cambodia, which houses about orphans and children from unstable families

During the Cambodian genocide driven by Pol Pot and the radical communist Khmer Rouge regime, approximately 1.7 million people were killed. Genocide should never be forgotten, so come hear a story that you will remember forever and help give children the opportunity for a brighter future.
