Lighthouse Club Pattaya | www.facebook.com/lhcpattaya
The Lighthouse Club Pattaya is part of an international organization that raises funds for families of construction workers who are in financial distress as well as creating opportunities for the children through providing safe establishments for day-care and learning.
Cees Cuijpers, MD-partner of T&C was Chairman of the LHC Pattaya from 2009 through 2011. In this capacity Cees built up an extensive following of local business people who came together for a charity networking evening on a monthly basis to raise funds for charity. Each month 200-300+ people gathered at an upmarket venue to enjoy the benefits of networking whilst enjoying good food & live entertainment. The results; hundreds of thousands of Thai Baht are raised for charity.
Movers & Shakers Charity
In 2009 Cees Cuijpers founded Movers & Shakers. An initiative to host an annual corporate GALA event on the Eastern Seaboard (ESB) of Thailand.
From its very first function; Movers & Shakers was a thrilling success as it immediately became the biggest corporate network of its kind on the ESB.
The Eastern Seaboard and Bangkok are getting closer and closer. Bangkokian's are the largest demographic making condo purchases in Pattaya and more and more businesses in Pattaya and Bangkok are crossing over into each other's territory, so it just makes good sense to recreate the success of Pattaya's networking events in Bangkok. Cees Cuijpers has with Movers & Shakers Networking Charity organized a monthly event at Bangkok's top luxury hotels that is quickly emulating the success in Pattaya. All proceeds go to charity.
Movers & Shakers and the monthly Lighthouse club events have become the biggest networking events on the Eastern Seaboard. If not in Thailand.
To-date over 4 Million Thai Baht was raised for charity.
