Jimmy Page signs an auction
We have been pleading with you since the rainout at our
Fair two Sundays ago to attend our Gala Party Night at the Amari Orchid
Pattaya, so we can recoup our losses. We appreciate you putting up with our
vigorous PR campaign and hope it was not overdone.

like you to come to our second fund-raising event simply to have an
enjoyable evening. The fact that it also helps us help the kids in need is a
By the way, if you are reading this on Friday, letís
mention right now that this event is tomorrow on Saturday, September 24th at
For those coming by car, we will have our own designated
parking lot at the top of the Amari Orchid in the old Garden Wing, which
means when you come off North Road past the Dolphin Circle going towards the
beach, it is the very first left. Please look for our yellow-face logo and
proceed accordingly with your admission ticket in hand.
From there it is a nice walk through the gardens and past
the swimming pools down to the Aranda Ballroom. Alternatively, there will
also be buggies to deliver you to the doorstep of the venue too.
The evening starts at 7 p.m. with a reception hosted by
the Amari in the foyer to the ballroom. Drinks and snacks will be provided.
At 8 p.m. we will open the doors to the ballroom, so you
can go to your designated tables and get ready for the international buffet.
On the tables will be bottles of red and white wine, while beers and softies
will be served at your table.
During dinner, we will begin with the welcoming
formalities, which will then be followed by the start of the entertainment
program. Our comperes for the evening will be Russell Jay Darrell and Mark
Rogers from Mix 88.5 FM.
After dinner, we will start the first of the two auction
segments. Bob Philp, from The Outback, who is an entertainer in his own
right, will be soliciting bids for donated items, which are almost half in
number from the usual fare of past years.
After another interlude of entertainment, we will wrap up
the auction, which will be followed by the grand raffle drawing. We will
draw the top 12 prizes publicly, including for the Honda PCX, while the rest
will be drawn off line. The list of winners will be posted on the evening
and in the Pattaya Mail.
Please remember that you do not have to be present to
win, which is the reason we ask for your name and contact details filled in
on all tickets.
The headliner, The Band of Smiles, comprised of Pop, Rick
and Harpic, et al, will then perform and will conclude our entertainment
