PIWC calls for Gala Ball sponsors



PHUKET: Cindy Ratcliffe, President of the Phuket International Women’s Club (PIWC), has called for businesses and island residents to sponsor, donate prizes and attend the PIWC’s annual fund-raising Gala Ball, this year to be held at the Hilton Phuket Arcadia Beach Resort & Spa on November 18.

“We intend to make this event a glittering evening of revelry and fun. To help us achieve this, we are hoping for many sponsorships, donations and table bookings from businesses and residents of Phuket and other provinces,” said Mrs Ratcliffe.

“Our aim is to raise funds for the education of disadvantaged Thai children whose families would otherwise be unable to afford their schooling. We firmly believe that the best way out of the cycle of poverty is through education and working together.

“We now have more than 220 students, many of whom have benefited from the generous donations and sponsorships from last year’s ‘Evening with the Stars’ event. This year, we are aiming to raise funds to ensure that our existing scholarship students can continue their education as well as providing scholarships for deserving, new children to receive an education,” she said.

This year’s Gala Ball is themed “Italian Masked Venetian Carnevale”.

All sponsors will have their names and company logo displayed in the program booklet, which will be given to all 450 guests at the event.
