Live auction featuring once-in-a-lifetime travel experiences anticipated to raise the THB3.5 million needed to fund hospitality scholarship and community training programmes in Phuket.

The Phuket Hotels Association, a nonprofit organization of hoteliers focused on promoting a positive image for Phuket, as well as being involved with community-based projects, is investing in local skills with a benefit event to fund 20 hospitality scholarships and traineeships for local residents.

The gala dinner, A Magical Island Event, is expected to welcome up to 400 guests to a spectacular evening of cocktails, dining, entertainment, and a live/silent auction on Saturday, 13th May 2017 at the Latitude Marquee, Laguna from 7pm until midnight. Dinner and drinks tickets start at THB3,900 net with parties-of-10 discounts available.

The event will showcase some of the best prizes ever donated for a fundraiser on Phuket, as the hotel association members have come up with some incredible experiences both in Thailand and with their affiliated hotels worldwide.

Just some of the top prizes to date include seven nights on a fully crewed and serviced 77 ft. luxury sailing yacht provided by The Village, Coconut Island Phuket; three-night stays at a total of six Outrigger Hotels in Phuket, Koh Samui, Fiji, Mauritius, two in the Maldives; and three nights at the legendary The Savoy - London, provided by AccorHotels.

With a fundraising target of THB3.5 million, proceeds from the Royal Siam themed exclusive benefit dinner will support the education of 20 hospitality scholars and trainees from Phuket, who would otherwise be unable to fund their training. Programmes will range from one month to up to four years and cover vocational and degree courses as well as overseas learning; helping to pave the way for some of Phuket's future generation of young management, chefs, and hospitality staff.

According to Anthony Lark, President of the Phuket Hotels Association, businesses in Phuket that donate can also benefit from the fundraiser. "By donating to a good cause and sponsoring this event, companies will support the community and can raise their profile and marketing presence in Phuket within the powerful travel and tourism industry."

A Magical Island Event opens with welcome cocktails on the lawn while live musicians interact with guests. This will be followed by a sit-down international buffet dinner with live cooking stations featuring some of the top chefs from Phuket's best hotels, accompanied by the Island's most creative mixologists. Guest MCs brought in to keep the event flowing include Australian polyglot, Stuart Jay Raj, plus owner and editor of renowned hospitality industry portal hotelintel.co, Wimintra Jangnin.

The highlight of the night's live music performances is Marcus Collins, X Factor 2011 star from the UK, who will be flying in to support the event, plus Phuket's hottest DJ Benjamin Jenkins (Ben J) wrapping up the night. Entertainment is arranged courtesy of Phuket-based Legend Music's Gary and Debbie Crause. Inspired Event Travel Asia / Creative Concept CCAV's James Drysdale is the events' major sponsor, handling the event management and supplying the decoration, lighting, and sound.

The Phuket Hotels Association has 55 member hotels with a shared goal of promoting the spectacular biodiversity, culture, and beauty of Phuket as a vacation island destination. This is achieved through educational scholarships, environmental initiatives and local community & tourism development programs.
