'Burma in the Spotlight' Gala Charity Dinner & Dance in support of The Best Friend Library – Chiang Mai!

Gentle Reader, 

As you know I'm volunteering some of my time to support The Best Friend Library.  Please take a moment and look at their website and you will see that it's much more than a library.

A couple of hours ago Best Friend Library posted an article announcing a successful campaign to provide Khong Naitun, a Burmese migrant worker who suffered horrific injuries from a construction accident, with two new prosthetic arms!  

  This is an organization that deserves our support!

Thank you in advance for your interest in the 'Burma in the Spotlight' Gala Charity Dinner & Dance in support of The Best Friend Library – Chiang Mai! The event will be held on Saturday, June 1, at The Imperial Mae Ping Hotel. There are several ways you can support this event:

• ATTEND:   We hope you will attend the event with your friends. Tickets are only ฿850 each, and for that you receive a lot of value: an expansive Burmese buffet dinner, live entertainment by Dang Fantastic, one of Thailand's best-loved musicians, performances by talented artists from Burma, free library membership, and a chance to win some amazing prizes. Best of all, every baht raised supports education and social welfare projects for people from Burma!

Tickets are on sale at The Best Friend Library (302/2 Nimmanhaemin Road, Soi 13), The Imperial Mae Ping Hotel's reception desk, and customer service desks at every Rimping Supermarket in Chiang Mai.  I also have tickets for sale; you may call me directly. Let me know if you are interested in booking a full table for 10 at a special price!

• DONATE:  Our business friends are encouraged to donate prizes for the event's lucky draw. This is a great opportunity to have your business featured at the event to a targeted, compassionate, and active audience. as well as a great opportunity for people to try your product or service. Hopefully, each lucky draw winner will receive a prize worth at least 1,000 baht. 

• ADVERTISE:  A 20-page full-color program will be produced and distributed to each attendee, in addition to special supporters who are unable to attend the event in person. We are able to offer a select number of full-page ad spaces in the program. Advertisements will be A5 (vertical)-sized, and are offered for only ฿1,500 each. This opportunity won't last long. If you are interested, please contact me or The Best Friend Library as soon as possible.

• PROMOTE: Please forward this email to all your friends and colleagues to help spread the word. We have A4 and A3-size event posters. Perhaps you would display one at your place of business. Just let us know if you are willing, and we will deliver to you!

You can see more details at the following links:  This is the organization we are primarily supporting with this event, although many other local Burma-related organizations will also be benefitting.

I look forward to discussing the event and your participation further! You can contact me at or 089-556-4293. You can also email

Abundant Blessings,

Jerry Nelson
