If compare to the $1 million per head banquet organized by a crook hotelier in Bangrak area last year, the Chef Charity Gala Dinner priced at $220 is pretty cheap, and quality is guaranteed since it is a Mandarin Oriental event!

That's really cool. Why not save one night room stay in a luxury hotel for this interesting event as well as it's for a charity purpose.

This price is relatively cheap for MO quality of charity dinner. The same quality charity with 8-course dinner starts with $500 US per person.
Too bad I don't arrive on 7/27 yet(as this day is my mom's B-Day). But I will promote this event by telling all my BKK lovers.
