BAMBI’s 35th Anniversary charity concert party is coming up on 20 January 2018, with stage entertainment and activities galore for kids — and all proceeds benefitting the orchestra of Immanuel Music School in Khlong Toei. Specifically, the funds raised will be used to purchase new violins for the orchestra.
Established in 2000 by Norwegian missionaries with a musical background, the school works with 100 disadvantaged children aged 3 to 24 years old. The kids have the chance to master a range of instruments, from piano to violin to cello, as well as taking part in choir, orchestra, singing lessons and electric string band. There are 15 students aged 6 in a day nursery, and lessons in the evenings and weekends for older students. For many of the kids Immanuel is a route into higher education – and ultimately a better life.
Come and have fun for a good cause! Join parent and baby bounce by Little Pea Kids Commons, Pili Aloha Hula Studio, dance-along with Tim Fournier from Purple Crayon and more on stage, plus enjoy magicians, a bouncy castle, Kiddy Kicks football, arts and crafts from Attic Studios and Little Pea, Tomy train building and more. There will be something for everyone.
Healthy, nutritious snacks that everyone can enjoy including gluten-free, dairy-free and nut-free options available from Steps with Theera, as well as Raclette cheese from switzerland and Greek-Mediterranean cuisine from Olive. The mini-bazaar will feature family friendly products, in addition to secondhand books and charity stalls from Central Thailand Mission and Second Chance Bangkok.
The venue is St Andrews International School Bangkok (Ekkamai BTS), from 9.30am to 12.30pm. The suggested donation is 200 baht per family for BAMBI members and 400 baht for non-members.
