Our philosophy at Outback is to support a charitable activity that significantly improves the lives of under privileged and handicapped children. In the past, we had charitable events for Baan Jing Jai and Sotpattana school where we bought hearing aids, a washing machine and television amongst other things to help the children.
This time we take on the most ambitious and rather expensive project to date, which is to buy the Pattaya School for the blind a new braille embosser which they can use to print literature, school books and other educational material for the children, in a format that is supportive of learning and thereby giving at least some of the severe handicapped kids a chance to get educated and find a meaningful existence.
We would therefore ask your support in three ways:
1) Join our golf day – charity should be fun and what better way to play a round of golf, have a great party with our live band, participate in the raffle and auction, and be part of the excitement. Entry to the golf round, prize money, buffet and the evening’s entertainmment will cost you only Thb 400, with the Greenfee and caddy at Green Valley for non members being Thb 1,550..
2) Help us through your contacts, friends and company connections to attract sponsorship. These printers are incredibly expensive, and we are looking to raise $16,000 (almost Thb 600,000), and we do require all the help we can get to raise this amount. In exchange, all our sponsors will be put on our event banner, receive free advertising in the press with our society, and be recognized for their efforts.
3) Please help us to assemble a collection of worthwhile and unique golfing memorabilia for our auction and please feel free to donate items for our raffle, prizes etc.
As a gesture of our commitment to this event, the Outback has still in reserve Thb 40,000 from our previous charity collections. Tawan and I will add another Thb 40,000 of our personal funds to double that, and we are kicking this event off with Thb 80,000 in the bank to try and achieve our target! We hope you can support us to reach our objective, and every little bit helps us to get closer.
Thank you so much for your support!
