The Lighthouse Club Bangkok concentrates on raising funds to help support Father Joe Maier of the Human Development Foundation and the Mercy Centre provide teachers to the Prakkasamai School in Samut Prakan province.
The school educates the children of workers employed on nearby construction sites. About 860,000 baht has been donated to the foundation so far.
The monthly networking meetings continue with the support of Bangkok’s construction companies. The meetings are held at The Clubhouse Bar in Sukhumvit Soi 23. The venue has an area upstairs, which affords a certain amount of privacy, and a sound system that is useful for sponsors when they present their goods or services.
The club also arranges a late lunch on the final Friday of each month, which is held at The Clubhouse Bar or another among a select group of Bangkok venues.
Members of the Chapter’s Lighthouse Golf Society play one game a month. Their membership subscriptions and fines contribute towards club funds. All of the money raised at these events goes into a bank account administered by RSM Advisory (Thailand) Ltd.
