Officially titled the “Stellar Charity Night at Okura – Dining with The Stars,” the glittering gathering was staged with the culinary collaboration of sister property Hotel Okura Amsterdam, which kindly sent two renowned chefs from its famed Michelin two-star restaurant Ciel Bleu and another from its Michelin one-star Japanese restaurant Yamazato specially for the worthy cause. This talented trio was joined in the kitchen by The Okura Prestige Bangkok’s acclaimed resident chefs and together they created the evening’s exquisite 6-course dinner of refined French cuisine embellished with beautiful Japanese touches.
The Okura Prestige Bangkok’s management team had the pleasure of welcoming many distinguish guests from the worlds of diplomacy, business and finance, technology, fashion and celebrity to the hotel’s lavish ballroom. Recalling the sparkling occasion Niek Hammer, General Manager of The Okura Prestige Bangkok commented, “I was truly honoured – and a touch overwhelmed – by the generosity of those who attended our first Stellar Charity Night at Okura recently. We could not have raised such a significant amount for such a worthy cause without their big-heartedness and benevolence. I would also like to say thank you to the entire team at The Okura Prestige Bangkok for making it a fantastic evening. We had been preparing for it for quite some time and when the moment arrived everyone performed magnificently. Well done! Finally, singular thanks for the support offered by our sister hotel, Hotel Okura Amsterdam, particularly for allowing prized members of their culinary teams to participate in Bangkok. Together we did something special!”
Mr. Hammer also singled out the event’s sponsors, including Asset World Corporation or AWC; Thai Beverage Public Company Limited; One Bangkok; Aware Corporation Limited; and The Mall Group for their generosity and cooperation. “I was speechless but delighted at the same time when I realised just how much money we would be able to donate to S.O.S Children’s Villages in Thailand and what a difference it would make. With support like this our Charity Night will become a force for good.”
