The international music festival entitled Loreto Fest 2008 was held at the RMIT University in HCM City on November 29, 2008. The event, which is organised by Loreto Vietnam Australia Programme (LVAP), aims to raise funds to support disadvantaged and disabled Vietnamese children.
The festival drew the participation of famous Vietnamese singers namely Ho Ngoc Ha, Pham Anh Khoa, Phuong Vy, Kim, and Mai Khoi and music bands from Australia such as Regurgitator and Curtis King.
red supported the festival through a donation and contributed 500 blankets for visitors to purchase with all proceeds going to the charity.
Chris Elkin commented “The red team is a blend of international and local people living in Vietnam. We wanted to give something back to the local community so formed a partnership with the Loreto Program. We feel that helping disadvantaged Vietnamese children is the best way to help build a brighter future for Vietnam.”
