Hotel Guests Raise $10,000 For Local Charities

One of the hotels I feature on the “links” page at Angkortuktuk.net is Hotel de la Paix which is owned by the same people who own Shinta Mani. Both hotels give back a lot to the community with Shinta Mani having been founded in order to create a free hospitality school for local at-risk youth.

Hotel de la Paix has done again what they always do well when it comes to giving back to the community. They recently held a very successful silent auction to benefit local charities:

“A silent auction of sculptures by the renowned architect behind  Hotel de la Paix in Siem Reap raised more than $10,000 for local community projects on an opening night that drew more than 200 guests to the hotel’s trend-setting Arts Lounge.

“The Fantastical Asian Figures exhibit (on display until July 18) presents classical Asian shapes and icons within the whimsical, free-spirited artistry that has made Bill Bensley one of the region’s most in demand resort and spa architects…”

  1. I thought you may like an update. I am pleased to report that we achieved a final result of over $26,000 when the auction closed on 18th July. Thank you to you and everyone for their amazing support. All funds will be directed to both the Shinta Mani Institute of Hospitality and the Hotel de la Paix Sewing Center.

  2. Mr Downing,

    Great job! That’s a very significant sum of money! Thanks for finding your way here and posting that update for our readers.

    As you may know I am a big fan of the work done by both hotels and the vision and the leadership provided by the managers and the folks at Bed Management.

    Be well.
