On Saturday October 1, the Pattaya International Ladies Club (PILC) held its annual “Holiday” Bazaar at the Royal Cliff Hotel and Resort. The day started very early for some, with vendors arriving from 6 a.m. to set up for the big day. Big thanks to Royal Cliff staff who were on hand to help unload goods.

The Bazaar was officially opened at 10 a.m. with current PILC president, Bea Grunwell together with past presidents, Celia Waters, Anja Schoof-Hertroys & Roseanne Diamente and Panga Vathanakul (managing director of the Royal Cliff Hotels Group) doing the honours and cutting the ribbon.

Bea Grunwell then gave a short speech thanking everyone concerned for their continuing support and attendance, particularly PILC’s major sponsors, SCG Dow Group, Foster Wheeler, Transpo, Bechtel and Solvay Peroxythai, without whose fantastic donations, PILC would not be able to give so generously to its Welfare Projects. She also thanked the Royal Cliff Hotel Group for once again hosting this event and then led the ladies on a tour of the vendors’ tables.

The day was a huge success, there being 43 vendors plus 15 tables set up by PILC’s welfare recipients and PILC themselves. A varied array of products were on sale, with anything ranging from Xmas cards to carpets, cakes to swimwear, beautiful jewelry to handcrafted goods and electrical goods to used books.

The Rotary Club “Fairy” (Dave) was on hand once again enticing people to buy raffle tickets. On her own, the “Fairy” managed to sell 14,000 baht worth of tickets. Thanks to “her” once again. The raffle prizes donated by many local businesses plus the vendors at the Bazaar resulted in a total of 77,000 baht being raised. Overall PILC raised 150,000 baht which will go towards their welfare projects in 2012. Big thanks to everyone who helped with a special thanks to Jasmine and Summer, two lovely young girls who were promoting Tarot Card Reading and some rather lovely transfer tattoos.

Bangkok Pattaya Hospital was also on hand again this year to provide free eye checks; and the Royal Cliff Hotel had an area set up with staff on hand for delicious sandwiches, noodle soup and coffee.

The president has received many messages from vendors and attendees alike, stating that this surely was one of the “best” bazaars ever. The quality of goods on sale was superb and very elegant this year.
