Afros & flares in vogue at TFi charity night


The Thai Farang Initiative (TFi) held another of its popular music themed events on Friday October 2 at the Access Inn on Pattaya 3rd Road, the theme this time being ‘Funky Flares & Afros.”

DJ Brooksy was behind the decks keeping everyone dancing whilst the Heineken and San Miguel girls ensured the flow of beers never stopped.  Many people got into the swing of things and dressed up for the occasion, sporting some tremendous afro wigs.

As usual at the TFi events, chaos soon ensued with party games, prizes and random madness all spurred on by the DJ.

The lead sponsor for the event was property developer the Nova Group and shared sponsor slots were taken by Hyla Group Thailand, REm Magazine, Lakeview Properties Pattaya and Real Radio.  Many media companies also came to cover the event.

Several guys from the cricket club in Koh Chang turned up with a cheque donation to TFi to the value of 32,400 baht and in total over 80,000 baht was raised from the evening.

Since the event, TFi has donated 25,000 baht to Operation Smile (an organization that helps with operations for kids with cleft lips or palates) and has also provided a wheelchair for the Karunyawet home for the disabled.

The TFi team are now looking at helping a local autistic school that was flooded after tropical storm Vamco and are also hoping to give poor families a little ray of happiness at Christmas.
