Music Trivia Night - Thursday 29th November, 2012

On Thursday the 29th of November The Phuket Has Been Good To Us Foundation, in conjunction with Hard Rock Cafe Phuket, organised: Music Trivia Night!

The Hard Rock Cafe was so kind to host a Music Trivia Night in their VIP room as a fundraiser for our Foundation - we were thrilled to have an event at such an iconic venue. The entry fee of 200 Baht goes directly towards making a difference to underprivileged local children.

It was a great night, and everyone had a lot of fun with the trivia! A lot of teams participated, and team The PIGS was announced the winner! Paul McCabe was the awesome Quiz Master of the evening, who kept us all involved and motivated! We also enjoyed the delicious cake that was prepared by the Hard Rock Cafe especially for the occasion.

A huge thank you to Hard Rock Cafe Phuket for providing us with the venue and raffle prizes for the event; it was great!

We also wish to thank Steve Johnston from Live 89.5 for coming and talking about our Trivia Night on air.

Another thank you goes to UFit for attending the event with your corporate visitors!

Barefoot Bowling - Sunday 7th October, 2012

On Sunday, 7th of October, we went barefoot bowling with many of our friends and it was great fun!  A great afternoon was had by all, and we raised some much needed funds to help us continue to provide a free English education to local children.

A big thank you to Kamala Lawn Bowling Club and Khun Nid for their much-appreciated support. 

Almost FAMOUS, Phuket’s Ultimate Social — Saturday 15th September, 2012

Saturday 15th of September 2012 was the day the first underage party took place at the FAMOUS Beach Club in Patong, an absolutely perfect venue! The 'Almost Famous' event, for Phuket's 14-16 year old students, took place from 4pm to 8pm and it was serious fun for all involved!

There were free manicures for everyone that wanted one provided by Gloss, delicious food by Outrigger and everybody was dancing the night away on music by the one and only DJ Tom the Tank!

The kids had a blast jumping and playing in the pool, which even turned colours after sunset! And Khun Jom, the fire dancer, gave the night a spectacular ending by putting on an amazing show!

Phuket Has Been Good To Us also received a generous donation from Phuket Top Model! Thank you very much!

Special thanks go to FAMOUS, Tom the Tank, Head Start, Cr8 Media, Gloss Nail Salon, B.I.S. and Outrigger for their support of this event. All proceeds go to Phuket Has Been Good To Us, helping underprivileged local Thai children.

A Starlight Soiree - Thursday 16th February, 2012

Julie-Anne Hunter was the star of the stage at charity event ‘A Starlight Soiree’ on 16 February. The world renowned opera singer sang songs by Italian opera-composer Giacomo Puccini, Andrew Lloyd Webber, George Gershwin, Mozart and Schubert. She was amazing as were the music teachers and students from BIS who formed an incredible choir along with performing several solos. 

Some of the guests have said it was one of the best events they have been to in Phuket. The night was hosted in a beautiful setting with scrumptious food from Bake and Flame and delicious wine from Wine Gallery.  The walkway was lit up with candles before entering the outdoor amphitheatre at BIS.

A huge thank you to Phuket News, 89.5, Bake, Flame and Wine Gallery who sponsored the event. We would not have been able to pull this off without you.

Also big thanks to the supporters of the Foundation. Because of them we were able to give away some amazing prizes and to raise money for the Foundation.
