Friends Without A Border's First Annual Los Angeles Gala to be Held at Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel With Special Guest Performance by Robin Thicke
Date:12/9/2009

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- On Thursday, December 10th , Hollywood Roosevelt hotel will host Friends Without A Border's first Annual Los Angeles Gala with all proceeds benefiting Angkor Hospital for Children. Co-chairs Jason Pomeranc, Kenro Izu, David Chang and Goodwin Gaw are joined by hosts Ali Larter and Hayes Macarthur, Amaury Nolasco, Diane Kruger and Josh Jackson, Anne Hathaway, Eva Longoria Parker, Jennifer Morrison, Kate Hudson, Molly Sims, Paula Patton and Robin Thicke, Rebecca Gayheart and Eric Dane, and Stephen Moyer. The evening will feature a highly anticipated special performance by the soulful Robin Thicke, cocktails and lite fare, live and silent auctions, music by Samantha Ronson, and sessions of Hollywood Dominos with Daya Fernandez.

"15 years ago, I traveled to Cambodia to photograph Angkor Wat for my next project. Very unexpectedly, helplessly, painfully, I watched a child slip away, because there was no medical treatment available. And, her death was preventable. How do you go back to the life you know after that? Our event will take place December 10th, which is also International Human Rights Day. Whether you support our hospital or another charity, we need to make sure that all our children have a future," stated famed Japanese photographer and FWAB founder Kenro Izu.

In the late 1970's, two million out of seven million Cambodians were tortured and executed, leaving a legacy of a shattered society to its children. Today, half of the population of 14 million is under the age of 21, over one-third is under the age of 15, and almost forty-percent lives on US$1 a day. We continue our work to help heal and rebuild the vital components of the country's infrastructure: healthcare, research and education, to ensure at the very least that each child will live to her or his fifth birthday.

About Hollywood Domino:

Hollywood Domino is the original game made by Hollywood and played by Hollywood. The concept originated in 2007 when a weekly Dominos night hosted by several celebrities in the Hollywood Hills soon attracted many 'A-list' actors and cemented its status as the new underground trend. In this new variation of the classic game, players choose a film genre with pawns that represent different movies (horror, western, action, romance, sports, etc.) in order to create a 'movie reel' of dominos. The first player to utilize all his/her dominos wins the bid for the "Oscar" Domino and can complete their "blockbuster" movie.
