Phuket Hotels Association launches fundraiser for scholarships

Scholarship Recipients from last year's fundraiser

Non-profit organisation The Phuket Hotels Association is inviting the public to bid in an online auction to raise funds for scholarships as part of its PHAB 2019 campaign, which included a charity gala dinner at Latitude Laguna Marquee last Friday.

Bidding is open until midnight May 31, 2019, and prizes include five-star stays and experiences donated by an array of sponsors from London, New York, Dubai, the Maldives and Sydney, plus Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Krabi and Koh Samui – all available with discounts for the highest bidder.

In addition to hotel stays, the online auction includes a range of activities such as yacht charters, golf, tennis, surfing classes and gym memberships.

The PHAB 003 silent online auction is continually being updated with bids and new prizes are being added. Bidders can check back on how they are doing and see what other are coming up.

Proceeds from the auction will sponsor at least 20 hospitality scholarships and traineeships, exclusively for the benefit of young Phuket residents who would be otherwise unable to fund their education. To date, the association has successfully sponsored over 30 students studying hospitality and tourism in Phuket.
