Pattaya International Ladies Club (PILC) has announced the date of its largest fundraising event this year – the Christmas Bazaar, to be held on 3 November 2012, at an exciting new venue, the Hilton Hotel on Pattaya Beach Road.

“We have had many extremely successful events at the Royal Cliff Hotel in the past, and would like to thank Khun Panga (Managing Director of Royal Cliff Resort and Spa) and her wonderful team who have always gone the extra mile to make our events memorable,” says President Ann Winfield. “But we wanted to try something new this year and look forward to working with the Hilton team in our new venue.  We anticipate that the central location on Beach Road will attract many extra buyers to come and have some fun, start their Christmas shopping and see something different.”

It’s always festive at the annual PILC Christmas Bazaar, which this year celebrates 20 years. It’s always festive at the annual PILC Christmas Bazaar, which this year celebrates 20 years.

In addition to a new venue, there is also a new date.  “This makes it nearer to Christmas, so we have gone back to calling the event ‘PILC’s Christmas Bazaar’,” says Ann.  “We are asking all our vendors to make their stalls very festive, and we will have a full program of events during the day, for young and old alike.”

There’ll be a Santa’s Grotto, dancing demonstrations, a magician to entertain the children and of course many items on sale that are not available through the shops, but are only sold here at our Bazaar.”

PILC has been in existence since the ‘70s, and this year also marks the 20th Anniversary of the Christmas Bazaar.  Over the years, PILC has raised many millions of baht through this and other spectacular events, and they are hoping for a bumper fundraiser this year.

“We have already had wonderful support from existing and new sponsors, and we thank them all very much for their support of PILC’s welfare work,” says Ananya Welland, Special Events Chair for 2012 and in charge of the overall arrangements for the Bazaar.  “We also have many vendors signed up, but we still have some tables available for last minute bookings!”
