To support talented young individuals in Phuket and promote the positive image of the island, the Phuket Hotels Association has announced the launch of its highly anticipated “Absolutely Fabulous Online Travel Sale.” This unique online auction aims to raise scholarship funds dedicated to Phuket’s aspiring youth. The initiative is part of the association’s Phuket Hotels Association Benefit (PHAB) 2023 campaign, which will culminate in a glamorous charity gala dinner, “PHAB 5,” set to take place on Saturday, May 20, 2023, at Angsana Laguna Phuket.
Running until midday on June 15, the online auction presents an array of enticing prizes, including luxurious five-star getaways to dream destinations worldwide. Generous sponsors have contributed various coveted experiences, ranging from Dubai, Sydney, and the Maldives to Bangkok, Chiang Mai, and Koh Samui. The highest bidders can secure these exceptional packages at significant discounts. Beyond lavish hotel stays, participants can also vie for thrilling activities such as yacht charters, golf outings, tennis lessons, surfing classes, and gym memberships.
The proceeds from this highly anticipated event will go towards sponsoring at least 20 hospitality scholarships and internships exclusively reserved for talented Phuket residents who lack the means to finance their education. Demonstrating their commitment to nurturing the local community, the Phuket Hotels Association has already successfully supported over 30 students pursuing hospitality and tourism studies in Phuket.
The PHAB 5 online auction is regularly updated with new and exciting prizes, allowing bidders to stay engaged, make new offers, and anticipate upcoming attractions.
