PURCHASE YOUR TICKETS NOW! Journey to Thailand on August 21
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. Chefs (and daughters) Pui and Lek 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. Guests will also journey to FTD’s Sunflower House thanks to a video by Housemother Mee. Thai decor 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.
Lek Graduates with Bachelor of Fine Arts
Join us in celebrating another Daughter’s college graduation.
In March, Lek graduated from the Rajamangala University of Technology Lanna in Chiang Mai, Thailand with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. Click here to view samples of her original artwork using the stenciling technique. While attending college, Lek designed the murals for a school renovation project with FTD and a partner organization. Today, her future holds many opportunities and we could not be more proud of her.
She will spend the summer interning with Villard Studios in Boothbay Harbor, Maine learning white line printmaking. This summer, she will also be creating original works for sale at FTD’s summer fundraising event to be held on Thursday, August 21 in Boothbay, Maine.
Lek returns to Thailand in October for her graduation in Bangkok. Her dream is to open her own silk screening business featuring her original art and to one day visit The Louvre.
