I have to agree. Unfortunately, all the charity dinners are in this price range. I'd rather just make the donation and eat elsewhere. It appears that the fundraising organizers/restauranteurs must think we are all a tremendously wealthy lot.

:o


Pardon me...

Yes, a ridiculously high price, IMHO...900 baht for the dinner???
Seems as though the restaurateurs are on the bandwagon..
under the guise of CHARITY...which will get a 500 baht donation.

Maybe it should be the other way around...IF for CHARITY?
500 baht for the dinner...and 900 baht for CHARITY!

Yet, the restaurants forget that the real cause in CHARITY...
NOT profit ..as they use the CHARITY good cause and name.

And, true, money is raised from these events...
but really much more should raised for CHARITY.

The CHARITY event does allow the restaurant exposure to many
potential customers by hosting the event...and so it should.

I chuckle when I see the pronouncement on some of the dinner
functions for CHARITY which say that 10 or 20% of the drinks sold
during the dinner will be donated too...such a joke! The cost of booze,
should result in a much higher % donation of drinks sold.

So much for my soapbox... :twisted:
enjoy your meal!

:arrow: and please donate what you can to HEARTT 2000...
Dr. Philippe is marvelous...I helped take a Thai boy to see him last week...
and the good doctor said he had already seen 6 new HIV+ patients
during that same day...and one more in the waiting area.

Such an ongoing crisis exists with HIV+ in Pattaya and Thailand.

See what deal can you make if and when KFC opens in Jomtien.......But that is not heart friendly food.

That's right 1390 with 500 to charity leaves 890 (nearly 900) for the food.
I fail to see the connection you make between KFC and Heartt 2000. Heartt 2000 is an AIDS charity, not a Cardiac charity.

It seems simple to me. If people think it's a reasonable price and wish to go, then they go. If people think it's too expensive and don't want to go, then they don't go. I'm not going to pay the equivalent of over US $45 plus drinks for a dinner either, so I won't be going. If I wish to donate to Heartt 2000 I can do so on my own. What's the problem?

I see no problem either. It's simple as far as my restaurant budget is concerned.

It's just like what Mrs. Harry Truman always used to say, "A buck here, a buck there, where does it stop?"

:lol:

I hope it doesn't stop contributing to the good doctor's organization www.Heart2000.org

Granted it is expensive. Myself and some friends splurge once a month for a expensive meal, by attending this dinner we can kill two birds with one stone. ;)
