Han-Schneider International Children’s Foundation Hosts 4th Annual Silent Auction & Benefit Dinner

Han-Schneider International Children’s Foundation (HSICF) will be hosting its fourth annual silent auction and benefit dinner at the Taglyan Cultural Center in Los Angeles on Friday, Oct. 26, 2012.

 
PRLog - Oct. 18, 2012 - LOS ANGELES, Calif., Oct. 18, 2012 – Han-Schneider International Children’s Foundation (HSICF) will be hosting its fourth annual silent auction and benefit dinner at the Taglyan Cultural Center in Los Angeles on Friday, Oct. 26, 2012.  The theme for this year’s event, “Sam’s Legacy Continues – Giving Children Hope,” honors the organization’s late founder Sam Han. HSICF serves the needs of children in orphanages in developing countries including North Korea, Cambodia and Tanzania.  

Sam Han unfortunately passed away in late June of this year after battling multiple myeloma – a rare form of bone marrow cancer – for more than 10 years. An orphan himself during the Korean War, Han started his children’s foundation in 2007 in honor of his late adoptive father, Dr. Arthur Schneider. Han always said, “I know my time on this earth is limited, but through the work of the Han-Schneider International Children’s Foundation, my legacy will live on.”

In addition to its humanitarian programs, HSICF has undertaken a grass-roots political movement to make it possible for American families to adopt North Korean orphans living outside of North Korea. “My life-long goal has finally come into view with the drafting of the North Korean Refugee Act-- [HR 1464/S. 416].”  The passing of these bills will require the Secretary of State, Hilary Rodham Clinton, in consultation with the Department of Homeland Security, to devise a strategy for facilitating adoptions of North Korean orphans by American families.  

At the charity event on Oct. 26, guests will enjoy dinner, cocktails and live music, as well as the opportunity to bid on select items during a silent auction. All proceeds will go towards funding future shipments of essential food, clothing and medical supplies to the orphanages supported by the HSICF.  

The event will begin at 7 p.m. Tickets are $75 presale and $100 at the door. For more information on volunteering or donating auction items for the upcoming benefit, please contact 323-246-4847 or email info@han-schneider.org.

About Han-Schneider International Children’s Foundation

Han-Schneider International Children’s Foundation (HSICF), a non-profit, 501 (c) (3) organization, provides basic needs to help improve the health and well being of orphans around the world. The foundation’s purpose is to realize the vision of its late founder, Sang Man (Sam) Han, once an impoverished orphan in Korea, which was to establish the necessary infrastructure that will enable an ongoing supply of food, medicine and clothing to save the lives of defenseless children in some of the most impoverished nations, including Cambodia, Tanzania, and North Korea. HSICF hopes to continue expanding its work – the sponsoring and maintenance of centers that provide marginalized children the opportunity for safety, good health, affection, and most significantly, the precious commodity of hope – to other various countries in need.
