PILC hosted another of its special events on Saturday 14th June. This time it was at the lovely Pinnacle Resort in Jomtien and was a fun-filled day brimming with pool and beach games, prizes, good food, music and even some dancing.
Thank you to all our members and friends who joined us. Though we were nervous about the cloudy conditions and rain we had that morning, the day turned out to be perfect.
In the evening we moved to Pinnacle’s beachside restaurant for the BBQ Buffet.
We had approximately 85 people attend on the day and it was great to see so many different nationalities, and families from all over Pattaya and beyond join in the event.
Our daytime activities centered around our young families and were held at Pinnacle’s kids’ pool. We were extremely fortunate to have our special friend Margaret Grainger from Hand to Hand Foundation help us out with the kids’ activities. Hand to Hand brought with them their special helpers from ‘Play Around the World’ who ensured that the children were entertained throughout the day with pool games, crafts and activities, lawn games and even a sandcastle competition on the beach.
We even had a sandcastle competition on the beach.
The fun continued well into the evening when we then moved to Pinnacle’s beachside restaurant for the BBQ Buffet. Pinnacle hosted an amazing array of food; there were steaks, sausages, salads, curries, desserts and much more.
After the feast, PILC drew raffle prizes and sold wine bottles with the profits once again going towards PILC’s charities. A special thank you to Jan Bremauer, guest relation manager at Pinnacle Resort, for his kind donation to the raffle. Jan managed to secure us 2 vouchers to Pinnacle’s Resorts in Jomtien and Bangkok for the raffle. Congratulations to all our winners.

Overall, feedback from the event was very positive, with both adults and children having a great time and enjoying the event. I was asked by several children when we would do it again.
A very big thank you to Hand to Hand and Play Around the World for their generosity, hard work, creativity and for helping to ensure the day was a great success. A big thanks to Raegan for her wonderful organisation skills, Wayne for the photography and music, PILC Committee for sourcing the raffle prizes and of course to the staff at Pinnacle Jomtien Resort and Spa for hosting the event at their wonderful hotel and restaurant. We look forward to working with you again.
PILC looks forward to seeing you all at our next event, and don’t forget that this year the PILC Christmas Bazaar will be held at the Holiday Inn on Sunday 23rd November 2014. See you soon!
Party games are a big hit with all the children.
