Bangkok Christmas Charity Fundraiser 2019

Skål International and PATA’s Bangkok Christmas Charity Fundraiser 2019 Hits New Heights.

The spectacular event took place on Wednesday 11th December 2019 with a record turnout. The Thai capital’s top travel associations, Skål International Bangkok and the PATA Thailand Chapter, put their considerable skills for organising outstanding memorable events to good use. This time to benefit needy causes for their combined Christmas Charity Fundraiser Lunch.

Over 140 travel and tourism executives attended the joint lunch event at the Radisson Blu Plaza Bangkok. Hearty festive fare with appropriate libations and the accompaniment of the youthful talents of a new generation of carol singers was followed by the largest number of prizes ever for the lucky draw and silent auction. 

Aside from the opportunity to welcome in the festive season with industry colleagues and friends, the core objective for the two leading travel associations was to raise funds for charities.

The four selected charities this year were: 

The raffle and silent auctions were critical to the fundraising that supports these important charities.

Our organising committee was extremely grateful to our generous sponsors, Thai Airways, Serenity Wines, Paulaner Beers, CoffeeWORKS and the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), who received the thanks of all those present led by Skål International  Bangkok’s President Andrew J Wood and PATA’s Luzi Matzig on behalf of Thailand Chapter Chairman Khun Nond Kalinta.
