Jazzy Festive Luncheon
On December 11, AMCHAM’s Jazzy Festive Luncheon brought together over 500 AMCHAM members to enjoy a festive luncheon featuring a live band playing holiday season jazz music, fun games, special appearance from Santa Claus and a star performance.
The event began with AMCHAM’s Executive Director, Heidi Gallant, welcoming members and introducing the Jazz band, Sarin & the Band, who played festive music and kept the audience enthralled with their rhythmic notes. AMCHAM’s Governor, Dale Lee went over AMCHAM business. As it was AMCHAM's last luncheon of the year, attendees were able to start the event off with a pass the present game before starting their lunch.
Members enjoyed a delectable 3 course meal by Grand Hyatt Erawan Bangkok, all the while enjoying live music, taking selfies with their colleagues, playing table games, and even enjoying some up-close magic with YouTube stars Charles the French and Tada.
A highlight of the event was a surprise performance by Drag Queen Dearis Doll, 1st runner-up Drag Race Thailand Season 1, as she gave a stunning performance set to Mariah Carey’s, “All I want for Christmas is you”.
Santa made a special appearance to spread the holiday cheer and candy canes with attendees. Before leaving, Santa announced that everyone present was on his nice list!
AMCHAM’s staff led some traditional caroling with the 12 days of Christmas with guests joining in on the fun. AMCHAM would like to extend special thanks Curt Mabry for playing Santa, Dearis Doll, and Charles the Magician and Tada for bringing their expertise to this event.
