Cambrew dish out dosh to SEA Games heroes

Beverage company Cambrew will honour their promise to reward SEA Games success today by handing out cash bonuses to gold and silver medalists during a ceremony at the InterContinental Hotel.

Prior to the November event in Indonesia, Cambrew CEO Say Sana Phommasy had pledged US$3,000 for each winner of an individual gold medal and $5,000 for a team gold. Silver medals would earn $500 and $1,000 for a team silver.

Cambodia’s four golds and 11 silvers translated to $23,500 from the Cambrew coffers, although the 24 bronze medals did not receive any renumeration.
