Citylife Garden Fair 2017

It has taken two months for us to collect money from those who bid at the Citylife Garden Fair in late November 2017, but we finally can announce that we have raised 472,862 baht from your generous participation in our auctions, exhibition and tombola. A total of 55,983 baht each, has been donated to six charites, and a 25,000 baht donation has been made to the Chiang Mai University Art Museum to renovate their building. There are two foundations remaining but we are waiting for them to send us their bank details. Thank you all so much for a record-breaking event and look forward to seeing you on the 24th November 2018, for the next Citylife Garden Fair.
