Pattaya Gay Festival raises 875,000 baht

Boyztown at Pattayaland Soi Three was packed on February 21 for the inaugural fund raising event of 2007 on behalf of the AIDS charity Heartt 2000. The street party, called Viva Las Divas, raised just under 900,000 baht with some huge donations from well wishers and sponsors.
Prizes donated included a free holiday for two in Phuket by Massic Travel and Absolute Travel, a week at View Talay Villas, diamond and gold rings from Honest Gems and valuable items donated by Exotiq Furniture. Participating bars also donated part of the proceeds from food and drink sales.
The sparkling street cabaret included Toi of Cafe Royale, Maisie Trollette, the Throb and Boyz show bars, the Dolly Sisters, Lady Lee, J.J. of Jomtien, Jordan Rivers and Madame Jim. The new PGF committee chairman, Richard Burk, said the year’s fundraising was off to a good start.
