Pattaya’s Hard Rock Hotel offered lunch and a place to eat it in to students at Huay Yai School.
General Manager Jorge Carlos Smith and staff from the hotel and Hard Rock Cafe presented the new cafeteria and hand-washing area to Principal Viroj Ampornvichai Nov. 12. The hotel also provided lunch and a much-appreciated dessert of strawberry ice cream to 250 children.
Smith said Hard Rock raised 940,000 baht to help the school after doing similar projects for Ban Chark Nok School in Huay Yai and Ban Amphur School in Sattahip last year.

Smith said the projects fall under the hotel’s motto of “Take Time to Be Kind.”
Viroj said the donation was much appreciated. The school’s previous cafeteria was located on low-lying property, which flooded frequently. It also was old and showing signs of wear.

“I thank the Hard Rock for being aware of the importance of development for students since building a cafeteria is providing children with a clean place to eat and a clean area to cook food, bettering nutrition for children to have good health and grow.”
The Hard Rock also offered donations to HRH Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn’s charities, including a truck to support the operations of the Children & Women Protection Center.
