Bangkok--4 Jan--Hard Rock Pattaya

On Friday, 20 November 2015, Hard Rock Hotel & Cafe Pattaya continued its tradition of holding its Annual Charity Fundraiser Concert and Gala Dinner with legendary songstress, Radklao Amratisha chosen to delight the crowd this year.

Once again, we would like to express our deepest gratitude to General Kanit Permsub, Deputy Chief Aide-De-Camp and General to His Majesty the King and HRH Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn for his presence and patronage at our event throughout the years.

The Soul Lounge hosted the welcome cocktail reception with drinks and appetizers served to start off the evening. Guests later moved outdoors to the Soul Lounge terrace where Jorge Carlos Smith, GM of Hard Rock Hotel & Cafe Pattaya gave the event's opening speech followed Peter Malhotra, a long time supporter of our event. General Kanit came up onstage and thanked everyone for supporting the cause before our emcee invited all of our guests to move on to the Hall of Fame where a buffet feast created by our Executive Chef awaited. Hard Rock Cafe's resident band, Nu Color, provided the entertainment during dinner.

Our charity auction followed dinner as Tony Malhotra joined emcee Kawee Suwanchartphan to excite the crowd and call for the highest bids on a number of beautiful items including a very rare golden statue of King Rama V, a portrait of King Naresuan the Great with antique teakwood frame, and a framed photo of Buddha Metta at Mahabodhi Temple in Bodh Gaya. A number of special holiday packages from resorts across Asia were also auctioned off with the highlight being a trip to Gili Lankanfushi in the Maldives.

Once the bidding ended, Radklao Amratisha took the stage for her first ever performance in Pattaya, singing her classic hits and a wide number of specially selected covers to the delight of all of our guests. By the end of her set, she had the guests dancing around the Hall of Fame.

After her performance, Radklao was joined by emcee Kawee Suwanchartphan and Tony Malhotra as they auctioned off a guitar autographed by Radklao herself. The funds raised from the entire event were in excess of 1.4 million baht and proceeds will be donated to Hard Rock Hotel & Cafe Pattaya charity projects in 2016 as listed below.
