scholarships for Thai

To generate money for scholarships for Thai girls living in distant areas, the American Women’s Club of Thailand will conduct a charity lunch

On Wednesday, October 4, 2023, from 12:00 to 3:00 p.m., the American Women’s Club of Thailand (AWC) and the Combined Women’s Clubs of Thailand (CWL) will conduct a charity fundraiser lunch with a tropical cruise theme on the Chao Phraya Princess riverboat.

The AWC is a volunteer-based organization that was founded in 1955. It works relentlessly to earn money for its chosen charity, the AWC Scholarship Program, which offers scholarships to impoverished girls in rural Thailand so they can complete high school.  250 students will get scholarships from the AWC in 2023 in order to pursue their dreams of going to college.  The AWC collaborates with the Education for Development Foundation (EDF) to guarantee that monies raised and programs launched will best serve the students. Under Thai legislation, EDF is a charitable organization dedicated to promoting education.  It received the “Thailand NGO of the Year” award in 2012 for excellent practices.

Over THB200,000 in prizes, including dining certificates from Waldorf Astoria, Punjab Grill, Smoking Pug, Conrad Bangkok, Anantara Hotels, Kai New Zealand, and Mama Dolores, as well as contributions from local businesses like Lin Jewelers, Gemfetti jewellery, SJ International Jewelers, Rajawongse Tailors, Oasis Spa, and Asian Tigers, are among the prizes that will be given away on the day.

No membership in the AWC or CWL is required to attend the event, which is open to everyone.

“AWC is proud to organize the annual Combined Women’s Lunch fundraising in 2023, giving the numerous women’s organizations in Bangkok a chance to come together and cherish friendship.  Along with a fun-filled afternoon, 250 Thai high school girls will benefit from access to education in 28 rural Thai schools thanks to auction and raffle revenues.  Joining us in celebrating friendship and the gift of education would be great. Jennifer Sparks, co-president of AWC, said.

Live music, an international buffet lunch, a welcome drink, non-alcoholic beverages, auction and raffle prizes, BYOB wine for free corkage, and a cash bar are all included in the THB 2023 per person ticket price (which must be paid in advance).  Tables of eight people will be seated, so gather your friends and make your reservation right away (although single tickets are also available for purchase).  At exactly noon, the boat will leave the Icon Siam port.
