Movie themes party night aims to help the needy


The Thai Farang Initiative (TFi) will host another fun event for charity on Saturday, April 2 under the theme ‘Music from the Movies’.

Following on from the great success of previous music themed evenings, the TFi team has decided to spend a night at the movies, with great songs featured from many favourite films of the past few decades.

The splendid The Venue music bar on Soi Siam Country Club, situated just before Lake Mabprachan, will be the location for this unique event.

The night will also have a new twist as it will feature 2 live bands, all playing hit songs that have been featured in movies, such as: “Don’t you forget about me” by Simple Minds and heard in the movie The Breakfast Club, “I will always love you” made famous by Whitney Houston from The Bodyguard, “Stuck in the middle with you” from Reservoir Dogs, “It’s a kind of magic” by Queen from the film Highlander and many more classics from the silver screen.

Since the inception of TFi, people attending the events have really got into the spirit of things by dressing up according to the theme, so on this occasion best & worst prizes will be given to those who come dressed as their favourite movie characters.

The lead sponsor for this event is the very well-known Pattaya property developer The Riviera Group, which has supported many charity based events in the city and without Riviera’s gracious assistance the event simply wouldn’t be possible.

The TFi team members are currently working within the community doing food drops to impoverished families and funds from the ‘Music from the Movies’ night will enable them to continue this and other benevolent projects that they handle.

The event starts at 7 p.m. and will continue until 10 p.m.  Entry is 500 baht on the door and 400 baht in advance (available through the TFi Facebook page) and includes a free flow of beers, wine and soft drinks (while stocks last).  There will also be special drinks promotions hosted by management at The Venue such as Barton Vodka/mixer 80 baht or Buffalo Trace Bourbon/mixer for 90 baht.

Indian food courtesy of Country Favourites will also be available, with a variety of tasty curry dishes for only an extra 240 baht.

See you at The Venue for a night of ‘Music from the Movies’ and all in aid of charity.
