    LBWVB - 2019

    Apologies for not posting here before.Sad that the event will not move forward but a remarkable result from a niche market of like minded generous people.Many thanks for your support and contribution - no other group has come close to what we jointly achieved.I hope that you all retain pleasant memories of an incredible event over 7 years.It was a blast.20 teams participated overall. Some of whom no longer exist. Anaconda, Cocktails & Dreams, Horny Bar, Stringfellows, So What.I met hundreds of BMs form this forum, and others, and value the friendships made along the way.The Areca Lodge, who hosted the event every year, are disappointed as are many charities that we have directly helped.
  2. LBWVB 2019Unfortunately there will not be an event this yearDifficult decision as so many charities have benefited through all your generosity.It has been a great deal of fun for both participants and attendees and an amazing success story.5.86 million Baht raised over 7 years with 4.71 million going to various charities. Costs to stage the event were 1.01 million0.14 million (138,000) remaining to donate to a deserving charity at some date in the future.Many thanks for your support and contributions which have helped so many people.A special thanks to all the bars that have participated and helped raise funds over the years.Also to Referees, DJ, Photographers. Contributors of Raffle/Auction items and Trophies. Brilliant support from so many.The event has put Lady Boys in a different light showing their positive contribution to society in a spectacular way.

    Apologies for the delay while awaiting Bank Interest in mid-December. Financial results for LBWVB 2017 The external audit has been concluded and the official audit report attached. Thanks to Aprbr taking on that voluntary role again this year he does not charge for his services and manages to fit in the audit during a hectic professional schedule. Nothing worse than looking at a load of numbers so will leave that for the official report. In the meantime the pictorial results. 2 Pie Charts 1) Total Income by Type - thanks to all of you for your support 2) Total distribution of income - again helping so many charities. 2017 Charity up date: Glory Hut have ordered their 40 beds, mattresses, pillows etc - delivery 4th February to coincide with moving to their new home. Bell and I were invited to help with the order. Pakse Medical centre have nearly finished their new toilet block - photos coming. Pattaya Orphanage are planning the repair of their main hall roof. The children gave a plaque to LBWVB for all our support. On the LBWVB site will be an accounts summary, by individual year and totals, for 2012 to 2017 in numeric form and Pie charts. 5,056,413 - Total Raised 861,839 - Total Expenses (17%) 4,115,000 - Donated to Charity (81.4%) 79,574 - Surplus carried forward to 2018/TBA (1.6%) An unknown surplus occurs as the Auction/Raffle and some Ticket sales are only raised at the event, after Charity Cashier cheques are drawn. Many thanks on behalf of all the charities we have helped. On the site there will also be a list of Charities to have benefited. The purchasing power of our contribution is higher than that of the UK or US so we make a significant difference. https://en.wikipedia...ng_power_parity LBWVB Event 2017 Audit V2.pdf

    LBWVB - 2017

    Apologies as I thought that I had posted this already: Previous post of thanks from Pattaya Orphanage - the video just completed. In 2016 media coverage was not allowed but this was salvaged video from the evening. You, your team and especially the LBWVB Pattaya who inspire and empower all of us to keep taking good care of the underprivileged kids. Hope you'll enjoy your everyday life..“ Thank you very much... thank you very much for the nicest things that you have ever done for the kids”.. Better to let the children tell you that directly: LBWVB 2016 "Thank You Very Much" Sang by The Pattaya Orphanage youtu.be The kids from The Pattaya Orphanage perform the song "Thank You Very Much" at the Ladyboy Water Volleyball 2016 event to show their appreciation for all the ... For 2 years the children, with carers, have attended the evening and happily entertained us. The hotel take care of our special visiting performers with ice cream etc. LBWVB recommends the songs, for the children to learn, which they have now performed at many other charity events. The Orphanage explained that learning the songs also helps with English language skills - hopefully more songs will soon be added to their playlist. With your support a lot more than just Charity fund raising has been achieved. For 1 day in the year: LBs have an opportunity to 'shine', in a positive way, within the community. Help those people worse off especially children. Have a fun day out for all - attendees, organizers, hotel, teams.....
