Tippi Hedren Honored by Vietnamese-American Organization

Former actress and model Tippi Hedren, best known for her role in Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds, and credited with helping the Vietnamese community first get started in the nail industry back in the ’70s, will be honored by the Vietnamese-American association, Boat People SOS, for their 30-year anniversary gala in Washington, D.C.

In a feature by the ShermanOaks Patch, Hedren is interviewed on how she helped educate the first Vietnamese refugees that fled the war on boats, on how to perform manicures and provide income for themselves in America.

Hedren was a resident of Sherman Oaks, Calif., in 1975, and sponsored 20 Vietnamese refugees to go through nail school. See the full article here.
