2014 Thai National Day Dec 5th summary report and thank you note


Dear TBA members and friends,

December 5th, 2014 marked a very important event for all Thais in all parts of the world: The 87th Birthday of His Majesty the King Bhumipol Adulyadej. In Ho Chi Minh City, the Royal Thai Government, the private sector and individual citizens resident in Vietnam joined together to celebrate this auspicious occasion in style. The joint organizers, Thai Business (Vietnam) Association and the Royal Thai Consulate HCMC, hosted this 2014 Thai National Day, December 05, 2014, and more than 400 Thai people and honored guests joined in the celebration. This year there was a painting auction from Thai artists organized by the Royal Thai Consulate which half of the auction amount will be donated through the Royal Thai Consulate. We especially thank Khun Phaeng of Baan Thai restaurant for organizing a special performance from Thai children who are living in Ho Chi Minh City and Typhoon Band. 

We would also especially like to express our sincere gratitude and appreciation to our kind food and beverage sponsors and all financial sponsors without whom this wonderful event would not have been possible. The below agencies selflessly provided the financial or material support that made this event so memorable and we are deeply indebted to them for their generosity:

Given the generosity of our sponsors from this event, TBA had a residual total of VND 129 milion, after all expenses were deducted.  Given that TBA is a non-profit organization, the Committee’s intention to donate this sum to the Chaipattana Thai charity and a prominent Vietnamese charity in honor of the King’s 87th Birthday. As a result, we allocated a donation of VND 30 mill vnd donated to HUFO (Ho Chi Minh City Union of Friendship Organizations) for the purposes of supporting scholarships for poor children in Vietnam on Dec 9th, 2014. The remaining VND 99 mil will be donated to the Chaipattana Foundation in Thailand so that this worthy foundation can continue with its good works.   

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we would sincerely like to thank you for your support and joining us at this event.

With best wishes,
TBA team
