Charity Action

The Chiang Rai Expats Club held a charity auction and dinner ( was held on Saturday June 25th 2011) which raised 17,000 Baht for local good causes. The event was staged at the newly opened Dean Plaza on the outskirts of town, and despite fairly miserable weather was well attended. The bids came in thick and fast on a range of donated items, notably original photography from Caty Dio who runs the Prataap Jai Gallery in Chiang Rai. The Gallery is a charity centre highlighting the work of local artists, as well as staging children’s events and Yoga classes.

A last minute donation was made of an Alpaca wool rug which fetched 2,000 baht, and this along with a superb photograph from Caty were two highlights of a great evening.

The money has been deposited and once a further decent sum is raised the funds will be transferred to the various charities which the CREC feel are ‘deserving causes’. Charities are invited to contact the CREC if they would like to be considered.
