ESPN Star Sports presenters back Phuket charity

The ESPN STAR Sports football broadcasting team are to visit the Laguna Phuket in Thailand from 23-25 March to participate in a charity event in support of Phuket’s Life Home Project, a shelter for mothers who are HIV positive and their children where they can live safely in a supportive community. The line up of TV presenters and pundits include Football Crazy’s Andy Penders, PJ Roberts and Sharkee Tan; Football Focus’ John Dykes and Andrew Leci of Here We Go will be joined by in-house football experts Paul Masefield, Jamie Reeves, Shebby Singh and Derek Currie; plus Club EPL’s Charlie Webster.

During their visit Phuket-based English Premier League fans will have the opportunity to get up close and personal with the football presenters, and simultaneously donate to a worthy cause. On Saturday 24 March, the celebrities will be playing in a charity golf tournament at Laguna Phuket Golf Club followed by a charity dinner and quiz night at Laguna Holiday Club Resort’s @Seventeenth restaurant in support of the Life Home Project. Golfers will make up a team of four with one of the EPL celebrities, while dinner guests will be seated on tables together with one guest celebrity, who will no doubt prove a great asset during the after-dinner Football Quiz conducted by host emcee John Dykes.

Golf and Dinner Packages are available to Laguna Phuket Golf Club members at THB 5,000 per person and THB 6,500 for non-members. The charity dinner and quiz night will be limited to 100 guests with dinner only tickets inclusive of wine and beer available at THB 2,500 per person. Entry to the golf tournament and tickets for the dinner will be sold in advance at the Laguna Phuket Golf Club pro-shop.
