‘Chow Down For Charity’ dining experience to raise vital funds for Phuket nonprofit

‘Chow Down For Charity’ dining experience to raise vital funds for Phuket nonprofit

Reserve a Chef’s Table for you and your friends on Saturday, November 30 for a din­ing experience unlike any other.

By The Phuket News

Tuesday 12 November 2019, 10:00AM

Choosing from a list of highly acclaimed participating restaurants, reserve up to 10 seats and enjoy a unique Chef’s Table Menu specially created for the evening. This private dining experience, Chow Down For Charity, is an opportunity to taste new culinary delights while helping local underprivileged children learn English.

Donation per seat varies by venue. All donations go to Phuket Has Been Good To Us Foundation (PHB­GTU), a local nonprofit that provides five full-time, fully qualified English teachers at two government schools in Phuket. These teachers educate over 800 underprivileged Thai children in English, as well as mathematics and science in English, at no expense to the children or schools.

Over 220 of the children PHBGTU support live in dormitories at Kamala School because they are or­phans or have nowhere to live during the school year. PHBGTU gives these children additional support through an after school programme called Coconut Club. Coconut Club is so important for the children left at school without family to care for them, who seek nurturing guidance from PHBGTU teachers and volunteers.

Help PHBGTU continue English education and after school support for hundreds of disadvantaged Thai children by reserving your seats for November 30. Invite your friends and enjoy a sumptuous Chef’s Table Menu at one of these notable participating restaurants:

  • Age at Anantara Layan Phuket Resort;
