Charity weekend getaway package in Chiang Mai to help Myanmar refugees
Bangkok, May 10, 2013

THE Imperial Mae Ping Hotel in Chiang Mai has come up with a special charity weekend package to raise funds for 14-year-old Chaa Nay Choo, who sustained serious burns while trying to save others in the Mae Surin refugee camp fire.


The package offers two nights' accommodation at The Imperial Mae Ping Hotel in Chiang Mai from May 31 to June 1 and includes a Myanmar-themed fundraising gala dinner and dance on June 1 in the hotel's grand hall, featuring Myanmar entertainers, Myanmar-style buffet dinner and a pre-function handicrafts exhibition.  Private tables of 10 are available on request.


Proceeds from the dinner will defray the cost of Chaa Nay Choo's ongoing medical treatment and provide support for other refugees from Myanmar. The organisation involved is The Best Friend Library in Chiang Mai.


The package is priced at 2,450 baht (US$82) nett per person based on twin-share, and includes an American breakfast, roundtrip airport transfers, the gala dinner and taxes.
