On Monday 5 October, Laguna Phuket together with executives, associates and Baan Don Village members had joined in Baan Don’s Sart Duen Sib (Ghost Festival) parade at Thepkrasatri Temple.
This festival is a southern tradition for Buddhists to make merit in remembrance of loved ones who passed away as well as the local heroes who sacrificed their lives.
“The festival also aims to celebrate life and embrace traditions in which community members would come together and donate food and necessities to the temple who will then share the supplies to those in need,” said Mr. Anthony Loh, Senior Assistant Vice President of Laguna Phuket,
“Laguna Phuket places importance in community engagement and cultural preservation. I am glad to see our associates and Baan Don Village members come together, all smiley and for good cause” he concluded.
The highlight is the full-of-life parade from Laguna Phuket with a Red Guardian Giant sculpture, brass band and a banknote tree of donation collected from Laguna Phuket associates and community members.
Laguna Phuket had raised 40,000 baht to temple (15,000 Baht from Laguna Phuket corporate donations and 23,000 baht from associates’ donation and 2,000 Baht from community members.)
