Bangkok, Thailand, October 21, 2019 – Marriott Thailand Business Council and Operation Smile Thailand together hosted FIGHT NIGHT 2019, charity boxing event raise THB 3.3 Million fund for children with cleft nasal and facial deformity throughout Thailand, on October 10, 2019 at Bangkok Marriott Marquis Queen’s Park.
After the previous success of FIGHT NIGHT, a fund raising event that aims to better the lives of children with cleft nasal and facial deformity, Marriott Thailand Business Council and Operation Smile Thailand once again hosted FIGHT NIGHT 2019. The 8th edition of the event invited amateur boxers to perform on stage in the charity event which was fashioned after Las Vegas-style extravagance where charitable guests donated to Operation Smile Thailand to give needed surgeries for the children with entry tickets and VIP tables at the ringside.
Mr. Simon Bell, General Manager of Bangkok Marriott Marquis Queen’s Park, said that, “This is another that FIGHT NIGHT concluded with great success. All the proceeds will go to Operation Smile Thailand to give surgeries and give back smiles on the faces of thousands of children in Thailand and beyond, just like we did the years before. As part of Marriott International, the co-organizer, I would like to thank all the support that made FIGHT NIGHT 2019 possible and raised fund for the children as planned. With these efforts and goodwill, we hope that the smiles return to you the same way we smile with pride and joy when giving back to society with an event such as this.”
Apart from the adrenaline rush boxing bouts, guests were treated to scrumptious food and drinks, fun games and giveaway and most importantly the opportunity to better the lives of children with cleft nasal and facial deformity, allowing them to support their family, their communities and their country.
