We have yet another White Palace event…just barely 2 days since the past.

Câu chuyện của tôi” (My Better Truth), which took place yesterday (April 23), is an exhibition comprising of photographs that depict Vietnamese celebrities enjoying their private life. Celebrities auctioned off paintings and some even auctioned themselves off with all proceeds going towards Vietnam’s Heartbeat Foundation.

Participating stars included Thành Lộc, Đàm Vĩnh Hưng, Đoan Trang, Johny Trí Nguyễn, MC Quỳnh Hương, hoa hậu Nguyễn Thị Huyền, hoa hậu Trương Thị May, Dustin Nguyễn, Thanh Bùi (top 8 Australian Idol), Thảo Trang Idol, Mr International 08 Tiến Đoàn, and more.

The 3 with the highest bidders.

The auction, initiated by Ngo Thanh Van, resulted in much success raising a total of 300 thousand USD–6 times  more than what Ngo Thanh Van originally expected. With these funds, 600 more children’s lives will be saved. When this number was finalized and announced, a sudden outburst of joy pierced the room.

The exhibition will also be displayed at the HCMC Museum from April 25-27.
