A great evening of entertainment, food, drinks and company attended by 350 guests who came together to support the event. All proceeds go towards a full needs-based scholarship for a local Thai student to attend UWCT.
Founder and Managing Director, Joshua Lee and friends were amongst the attendees and also contributed to the many auction prizes.
Thank you from UWCT Benefit Gala Committee; “We are thankful to UWC staff, parents and the Phuket community for helping us raise 1,600,000 baht, which will enable an underprivileged local Thai student to attend UWCT for the 2 year IB Diploma Programme starting in August 2017. The funds raised will fully cover the student’s tuition fees, food, allowances, equipment and all other school associated expenses.
A heartfelt gratitude goes out to you personally for helping us achieve our goal: making a transformational change in a child’s life by providing the opportunity to have quality education. Our success would not have been possible without your generosity and support.”
