Deputy Governor Pakpoom Intarasuwan hosted the launch with President Paiboon Upattising as guest of honor. President Paiboon was accompanied by Council Secretary Kraiwut Kumban.
According to the chairwoman of the Corps, Porntip Lohkaeo, the charity boxing matches aimed to raise fund for the organization’s expenditures.
