Laguna Raffle Puts School Charity in the Picture

A raffle to win a unique signed painting valued at THB 60,000 by acclaimed Australian artist Christopher Hogan is raising much-needed funds for the Phang Nga provincial school supported by Laguna Phuket’s Developing Sustainable Schools program.

Christopher is currently Artist in Residence at Laguna Phuket’s Summer Family Festival – and the raffle draw will be the centerpiece of the Summer Family Festival “Art Party” in Canal Village on Saturday 31 July, when his residency ends.

The raffle prize painting – “Clownfish V” – is 100cm x 100cm acrylic on canvas and an outstanding example of his renowned aquatic-themed work.

With tickets being snapped up the raffle has already raised thousands of baht for Baan Jao Krue School in Phang Nga province, the current focus of Laguna Phuket’s Developing Sustainable Schools program.

Other prizes include two nights at a Laguna Phuket resort, a Banyan Tree spa package for two, rounds of golf at Laguna Phuket Golf Club and a Laguna Tours trip for two to Phi Phi Island.

The THB 100 raffle tickets are available from reception desks and tour counters at Laguna Phuket hotels, as well as around the Laguna area in Pepper’s Bar, Khun Woody’s Sandwich Shoppe, Black Cat restaurant, Farang restaurant, Lady Pie restaurant, Village Bakery and the Cherngtalay branch of Siam Commercial Bank.

Christopher Hogan holds daily painting classes for hotel guests and local residents at the Summer Family Festival in Canal Village. He is also volunteering creative art lessons for teachers and pupils of Baan Jao Krue School to initiate the children’s creative studies.

The Laguna Phuket Summer Family Festival runs until 20 August with daily Kidz Fun Zone adventure activities, a Flying Trapeze, Hollywood@Laguna family filming of a “Virtual Motorcycle Tour of Phuket” and nightly entertainment in the beer tent.  The Festival also has a range of offers for children to stay, eat and play free at Laguna hotels until 31 October.
