Mayor Itthiphol Kunplome, Phawin Phettrakul, general manager for the Alcazar cabaret show, and Praichit Jetpai, chairwoman of the YWCA Bangkok-Pattaya Center, capped off the charity drive at the Feb. 4 press conference by donating another 1 ton and 90 bags of rice, respectively.
(L to R) YWCA Bangkok-Pattaya Center Chairwoman Praichit Jetpai, Mayor Itthiphol Kunplome, Alcazar GM Phawin Phettrakul and Foundation President Rev. Michael Picharn Jaiseri announce the success of this year’s S.O.S. rice campaign.
“This year’s drive was an immense success and better than 2011, when 1.3 million baht in cash and rice was raised,” Jaiseri said.
Funds and rice go toward supporting 850 children under the care of the Father Ray Foundation and its Redemptorist schools.
