Thailand is experiencing a record flooding, the worst in 50 years. 297 people died in the floods that have inundated the country for 3 months. The floods still prevail in 61 of 77 provinces, affecting about 2.5 million households and 8.6 million people. About 50 main highways in many provinces are flooded and cannot be passed.
In response to this natural disaster, the Thai Association of Minnesota and the Thai Student Association of
Minnesota are organizing a fundraising dinner on Saturday, November 5th, 2011, 6.00 – 11.00 PM, at the Northstar Ballroom, University of Minnesota, St. Paul campus (2017 Buford Avenue, St. Paul, MN 55108).
You are cordially invited you to attend this event to support the flood victims. All proceeds and donation will go
directly to flood-victim assistance efforts in Thailand without any deduction for the event organizing
expenses and/or the food cost. We are fortunate to have supports from Thai restaurants in the Twin Cities.
The $25/person admission includes food and beverages. The event also features stage performances of Thai
dance, music, and other entertainment. Tickets can be purchased by contacting Vilaiwan (612) 554-9950;
Kanitta (952) 894-1662; or Parichart (612) 701-6019. In-advance purchase is strongly encouraged for our
food preparation plan.
Direct donation is also welcome and appreciably encouraged, and is tax deductible. Please send the check to
Thai Association of Minnesota, 2972 Ontario Road, Little Canada, MN 55117.
