The Lions Saraphi Club held a night to remember at the Empress Hotel on Monday, December 10, 2012 as Chiang Mai dressed up in their finest Indian costumes. The evening was a roaring success as everyone enjoyed the traditional Indian wedding, dancers performing Indian dances, and a fashion show featuring all the styles of Indian clothing from around the nation with the Governor’s lovely wife, Inthira Subhasaen, as one of the models. The Indian Consul Dhirendra Singh Garbyal was joined on stage by Japanese Consul General in welcoming the crowd and the Indian Consul offered his congratulations on such a successful fundraising party.
Funds raised from the evening will go towards purchasing bicycles for schoolchildren who live far from schools out in the countryside.
