Santa Claus appearances in Bangkok this holiday season was an enormous success. Santa brought lots of Christmas cheer, joy and spirit to the Thailand community.
The Tree of Life Foundation "Santa Claus " fundraising events brought in much needed, and much appreciated, financial support that will be instrumental in purchasing identified items for Ban Mae Maem and Ban Na Ku Schools. 100% of the funds raised by Santa Claus will be used for school purchases.
The foundation made a Santa Claus advertisement on Facebook 4 weeks ago to list appearances, reservation telephone numbers and follow up photos of the events.
This advertisement was only published within Thailand. The advertisement reached 54,980 people with 5,500 likes and 194 shares. Thank you for the positive feedback.
Santa Randy Lovernich, Chairman, and Darrell Lovernich, Vice Chairman, of The Tree of Life Foundation, would like to acknowledge and wholeheartedly thank the following for contributing to the success of these Santa Claus events:
Jennifer Lin and The Harvard Club of Thailand. Our kickoff Santa Claus event as Jennifer became one of our most beloved hosts this season.
Marriott Marquis Queens Park Hotel for their beautiful Christmas Tree lighting celebration.
Mr. George Cossey, F&B Director of the Marriott Marquis Queens Park Hotel and the very generous staff who were instrumental in getting Santa Claus to appear and subsequently, becoming champions for our foundation.

Randy sure makes a fabulous Santa Claus, doesn't he?
This SANTA idea came about when one little Thai boy at the school asked Randy if he was Santa! Even without the Santa suit, he certainly looks like Santa -- and here we are today!
