OSV will also auction off a four-night stay at Baan Asan, a luxury holiday villa complex located on the pristine beach of Talig Nam in Koh Samui (Thailand). Through the event, the organizer hopes to raise enough funds to sponsor surgeries for at least 800 children with cleft lip/cleft palate. Each surgery costs US$150. The event will take place at Park Hyatt Saigon, Lam Son Square, District 1.
