TFI are taking you Back to the '80s!
TFi are back with another exciting musical night scheduled for Friday 8th August, entitled Back to the ‘80s.
This event will mark TFi’s (Thai Farang Initiatives) first birthday and, due to public demand, will be an ‘80s-themed music night the same as was staged a year ago.
The venue will be the Access Inn on Third Road—a place which is perfect for this type of event, with plenty of space, a superb sound system and funky lighting. Dave D, the popular TV and radio presenter, will be the DJ for the evening and the TFi team promises that they have a few surprises up their sleeves as well as the free-flow beer, red and white wine and soft drinks.
The sponsors for the evening are Universal Group, CEA Project Logistics, The Booze Lounge, Defence International Security Services, Mobile Advertising, Voova Group, Hometown Property and Siam Winery.
The ethos of TFi is to create fun events for charity. In the last year, they have staged three music-themed evenings as well as two free-of-charge children’s parties at Jameson’s Irish Pub and, in addition to the event sponsors and income from the events, they have received various anonymous donations and funds raised from a trek to the base of Mount Everest by Shaun Houlding.
This has enabled them to repair the cleft lips of three children with the help of Operation Smile, made repairs on a man’s house, rebuilt a man’s motorbike and sidecar so he can sell food from it and provide for his family. They also did a joint venture with Pattaya Sports Club and Jesters Care for Kids to provide goal posts and nets, basketball nets and balls for the kids at the Anti-Human Trafficking and Child Abuse Centre. TFi then furnished all the kids with training shoes and football kits.
They also joined with Rotary Club of the Eastern Seaboard and donated gravity-fed mobile water filtration systems to poor families by Lake Mabprachan.
Other projects have included assisting a flood-damaged orphanage in Mae Sot, contributing to the funding of a swimming pool for a school in Chantaburi and taking 40 kids from the Anti-Human Trafficking and Child Abuse Centre for a day at Khao Kheow Open Zoo.
TFi are a group of local guys who give up their free time and are dedicated to helping those who need it, not by donating money but by facilitating the need by project management. All event income and expenditure is listed on their Facebook page and website to ensure maximum transparency.
Back to the ‘80s will start at 7pm until 10pm with drinks promotions after 10pm. The entrance fee is 400 baht in advance or 500 baht on the door and are available through the team who can be contacted via their popular Facebook page: www.facebook.com/funcharityevents or via the website www.TFI-events.com
