At 11am, after the atmosphere has built, the famous thoroughbred horse race will be screened. When the last horse is past the post, the dance party begins in earnest. For guests wishing to find amazing deals for their next holidays, there will also be fabulous prizes to bid on, raffles and lucky door prizes.
With amazing food, prizes and dancing, this will be a thrilling event for horse racing novices as well as for veteran Melbourne Cup enthusiasts.
The Melbourne Cup is organised by The Good Shepherd and Phuket Has Been Good To Us Foundation as a fundraiser to benefit both charities.
The Good Shepherd has many projects around the island that help those in need through support, counselling and education in local camps and poor villages. The Good Shepherd’s school in Phuket Town caters to over 240 students, while the BanYa Learning Centre in Thalang caters to over 100 children from Myanmar and aims to prepare them for acceptance into Thai schools.
Phuket Has Been Good To Us Foundation works to improve the economic opportunities and life chances of disadvantaged youth by funding and implementing high-quality, practical English language education. The foundation teaches English for free to over 600 underprivileged Thai children in governmental schools on the island and runs an after school programme, Coconut Club, which works with 200 children who are orphans or whose families are unable to look after them.
Thanks to Angsana Laguna Phuket, Class Act Media, Creative Concept and many other sponsors, this year’s Melbourne Cup promises to be spectacular and we hope to see you there!
