The Cambodia Peace Museum project, being carried out by the Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies, hosted the Peace Museum Masquerade Gala and Auction on Saturday, at Le Meridien Angkor Hotel in Siem Reap. The date was chosen to recognise the 25th Anniversary of the signing of the Paris Peace Accords, which opened new possibilities for people to return to and begin rebuilding the country after decades of war. The evening was a semi-formal masquerade, with a red carpet photographer, live music by Amok Soul Project, an aerial silks acrobatic display by Phare the Cambodian Circus and music by DJane Sao Sopheak. The exciting live auction featured many great prizes from Siem Reap, Phnom Penh and beyond. Tickets were $80 per person, which included canapés, cocktails, and complimentary masquerade mask on arrival, plus entry into the Lucky Draw Prize, a two-night stay at Le Meridien Angkor.
