Rex's 75th Birthday Bash and Charity Fundraiser - Sunday 31st May
To Support 'FERC' (Foundation for the Education of Rural Children)

This month saw one of the largest turnouts for Classic Cars of Lanna in recent history, with 40 members and friends attending, along with over 12 classic cars.

We met at NIM City Daily, and proceeded in convoy out to Hang Dong, for our Poolside Party BBQ venue, the lovely home of members Paul and Tatyana, who generously donated and provided the lunch buffet and BBQ for the evet.

Welcome drinks were provided by the birthdsy boy, Rex, and we all gathered in the car park of the house to enjoy a glass of Buck's Fizz, whilst admiring the assembled classic cars.

Every single Baht raised in ticket sales was donated to FERC - The Foundation for the Education of Rural Children, the Chairman of which is our own member Marc D, and his wife Luxami is President.

Marc D and Patrick R also kindly donated the beer and wine consumed on the day, and sales of this also swelled the final day's takings.

We are delighted to report that a total of THB 31,250 was raised and donated to F.E.R.C., which is enough to pay for the education of three students for one year.

Thanks go to all for making this day so enjoyable and worthwhile.
