Rose Charities Phnom Penh 2010: Accommodation

For Cambodian travel arrangments / hotel bookings:    Mr Hem Nara      Mr Nara has worked with Rose Charities for many years dealing with bookings for both previous conferences (Penang and Ho Chi Minh City).  We very much recommend him for all travel arrangements including Siem Reap / Angkor Wat travel.

Officially recommended hotels for delegates. (its more enjoyable when everyone stays in the same place(s) - though Phnom Penh has many other hotels too of course)

1) Imperial Garden Hotel   Approx USD 60 per night. Nice pool and gym. The hotel where the conference rooms are.  Book through Mr Nara for best rate (ie not over internet)

2) Frangipani Hotel (there is a Frangipanni Hotel '60' and a Frangipanni Hotel '90' - we recommend the '60').  Mention the Rose Charities 2010 Meeting for a discount.  About USD 36 per night

3) Goldie Boutique Guesthouse    Around $28 per night.  Well recommended

.. If all else full...

4) Blue Lime Hotel    About USD 40 per night .. but worth it..

WHAT: FOTORELIEF and A Milk Gallery Project organizes “A Picture Saves A Thousand Lives” silent photo auction event to contribute to the Haitian earthquake relief effort through ROSE Charities. Over 100 of the world's most respected fashion and fine art photographers are each donating a photograph to be exhibited and auctioned off that evening, with the opening bids ranging from $300 to $10,000. Invited guests – art patrons, collectors, celebrities, and the fashion & fine art photography world elite – will have the opportunity to take home an important work of art, while making an invaluable contribution to the relief effort. All of the proceeds from the auction will go to ROSE Charities, to provide long-term care and rehabilitation for the survivors of the Haitian earthquake. In addition, a numbered, limited-edition book of all of the photographs from the auction, will be available at the event with all proceeds going to the cause.


FOTORELIEF, an all-volunteer organization and a veteran of fundraising auctions, has partnered with ROSE Charities to address some of the longer-term problems in Haiti. Noot Seear, international top model, actress and President of ROSE Charities US commented, “After the attention wanes and the media has decamped, there will still be years of rehabilitation and reconstruction needed for the Haitian people. The doctors, therapists and volunteers that generously donate their time and purpose, through ROSE Charities, have a history of that dedication.” John Gettings, Director of FOTORELIEF, added “We are extremely pleased to partner with ROSE Charities for this effort and want to thank Milk Gallery, all of the photographers, galleries and agents for their generous support.”

Regional Tasting Lounge ( to host benefit for Rose Charities Canada’s mission to Haiti.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – January 15, 2010 (Vancouver, BC) - With the mounting level of devastation and overwhelming need for basic resources in Haiti – Regional Tasting Lounge has planned a benefit event Thursday, January 21st to raise much needed funding for Vancouver-based Rose Charities Canada’s mission to the disaster stricken country.
Joining as special guests for the evening are Vancouver-based photographer: Tallulah Tallulah and fellow journalist, Roberta Staley who travelled together on assignment to Haiti just last year, and ultimately covered the collapse of a primary school while working in the poverty stricken country.
When asked about her experience travelling and reporting on such tragedy, Tallulah stated:
“It was a difficult trip, but a profound and inspiring experience, as we were both deeply touched by the graciousness and beauty of the Haitian people.  During this time, we covered the collapse of a primary school, and saw many dead and injured children pulled from the rubble. It was an experience so terrible to witness that we could only hope that it would never happen again. Yet it has -- but on an unfathomable scale. The suffering of the Haitian people is also unfathomable. But there is something we can do.”
A very special, moving collection of hand-printed photographs will be on display during the evening and both women will share their experiences with guests.  They will be joined by a representative of Rose Charities Canada who will speak about the organizations current efforts, and what will be their second relief dispatch of volunteers to Haiti.
This event will include:
·Complimentary drink upon arrival
·Photo gallery and presentation
·Gourmet canapés served throughout the evening
·Silent auction items and door prizes
·Special pricing for select bar items

The majority of the $45 ticket cost is set to go to Rose Charities Canada.  In addition, 100% of proceeds from the events silent auction will directly benefit the organization.  Tickets can be purchased by contacting directly: 604.638.1550.
