AMCHAM Events Roundup

Thai-American Business (T-AB) Magazine - - Contents -

On April 22 at the AVANI River­side Bangkok AMCHAM Thai­land rounded up its cow­boys and cow­girls for the Gov­er­nors Ball, the Cham­ber’s an­nual gala where AMCHAM’S Hon­orary Chair­man of the Board, U. S. Am­bas­sador Glyn T. Davies, wel­comed the new AMCHAM Pres­i­dent and the 2017 Board of Gov­er­nors. Over 450 mem­bers donned their coun­try best for the ‘ Coun­try Roundup’ theme, feasted on a four­course din­ner and sig­na­ture cock­tails by Di­a­geo Moet Hen­nessy and en­joyed live en­ter­tain­ment by Martin Grand and Danny Cal­i­for­nia All­stars. The high­light of the evening was the Silent Auc­tion where mem­bers bid on over 130 items to raise money for the AMCHAM Thai­land Foun­da­tion’s ed­u­ca­tion pro­grams. The Silent and Live Auc­tions and the lucky draw raised over Baht 1.6 mil­lion that will sup­port de­serv­ing, but dis­ad­van­taged Thai stu­dents through their univer­sity ed­u­ca­tion in Thai­land. We are grate­ful to ev­ery­body who con­trib­uted to make the event a smash­ing suc­cess: the spon­sors for their sup­port, the com­pa­nies that con­trib­uted the silent auc­tion and lucky draw prizes, and most of all, our mem­bers who opened their hearts and their wal­lets to im­prove the qual­ity of ed­u­ca­tion in the King­dom.
