The Food & Beverage Management Association organized a 29-year reunion party to raise funds for colleagues facing difficulties.
Anusak Rodbunmee, president of the group back in 1984, hosted the April 11 party at the Hotel J in Pattaya with current President Yuparat Wongdaokul, welcoming more than 100 former and current members.
Party organizer Direk Pongsawat said the 29-year reunion party was the first of its kind for the association, but will take place every April 6 from now on. Apart from getting reacquainted with old friends, the party offers the group a chance to raise funds for members facing sickness or unemployment.

The association collected contact information from party guests with plans to compile all the information into a club database.
The Food & Beverage Management Association Eastern Region was founded in 1969 and became an official association in 1980. It’s main purpose is to promote and develop the careers and skills of F&B employees to match international standards.
