Journey to Thailand….

Join Friends of Thai Daughters for a scrumptious spread of Northern Thailand’s most wonderful flavors paired with Maine’s fresh vegetables, fruits and meats. Head chef and Sunflower House housemother Mee will be joined by Boothbay region favorite, Liz Evans, to offer up plenty to please your palate. Art by Lek and photographs by Nick Mace will be for sale. Guests will also enjoy Thai music and a short live auction. Thai decor, courtesy of Mexicali Blues, will transform the Barters Island Community Hall to complete the experience.

Journey to Thailand is both a thank you for all of our Friends of Thai Daughters and a celebration of this year’s graduations and all of our daughters’ successes. We hope you can make it.

Additional donations welcome at the door. All proceeds benefit Friends of Thai Daughters.

FTD wishes to thank the following people for making Journey to Thailand possible: Kim and Philippe Villard, Kate Horgan, Mexicali Blues, Liz Evans, Susan Hodder, Doug Gimbel, Steve Pinnisi, Mee, Lek, Pui and the the Barters Island Community Association.
