Five of Phuket’s finest female chefs from the island’s premier luxury resorts and restaurants, including our very own Executive Sous Chef Anongrat “Piak” Meklai of Black Ginger, are joining forces on Saturday 22nd April for ‘The Sassy Chef’s Kitchen’ charity dinner at Kata Rocks benefiting children at the BanYa Literacy Centre.
Tickets to ‘The Sassy Chefs Kitchen’ Dinner are priced at THB 3,800 net per person with all proceeds raised going towards assisting the 150 Burmese children who attend the BanYa Literacy Centre. These students recently moved into a dedicated eight-room learning facility last December 2016, funded and built through grants and donations. However, the average cost to support each child runs about 10,000 baht per annum.
Good Shepherd Phuket helps women and children on the island who have been abused, are caught up in human trafficking or the sex industry, as well as in poverty or suffering from HIV. They are given shelter, counseling, schooling and the opportunity to re-educate themselves and thus earn a decent living. Handicraft items made by the women are also sold at some of the top resorts in Phuket.
If you’re staying in Phuket during this time, we hope to see you there to help support the BanYa Literacy Centre – for reservations and information, please email Donna Toon at The Good Shepherd: email@example.com
