The A-One Royal Cruise Hotel marked its 25th anniversary by providing lunch and making donations to the Garunyawet Home for the Disabled.

The Oct. 11 event in the home’s cafeteria also served as a birthday celebration for hotel chairman Somchai Ratanaopath, who helped organize special activities for that give something back to the community.

Many A-One employees attended, helping each other set up tables and serve drinks, sweets and ice cream to the disabled. They were entertained by karaoke performances by hotel staffers, who sang and danced. Many of the residents were up dancing as well and enjoyed themselves since they do not have many such opportunities.
