The Professional by Kru Rodj, established by Rungroj Dullapan, invites over 100 teachers and students to present a music phenomenon and a merit making opportunity which gives back to the society through a charity concert “Sing for Help 2017” under the concept “10-Year Sing for Help, Sing for the Memory”. Thai people are invited to join this journey and celebrate a decade of success through a fundraising activity to help the underprivileged through charity organizations. This charity concert will be the final edition of this outdoor concert. The concert will raise funds to support the construction of Ban Paew Eye Hospital and procurement of medical tools to help underprivileged patients with eye conditions.
Kru Rodj or Rungrodj Dullapan, a singing teacher who founded The Professional by Kru Rodj, said, “Sing for Help charity concert is a powerful gathering of music people to give back to the society through music. Over the past decade, the teachers and famous artists who are either alumni or current students have raised funds to support organizations which help the underprivileged in our society. The funds have been used to help our society sustainably such as by helping children with cleft lip and cleft palate in Yim Suay Siang Sai project by the Thai Red Cross, supporting the purchase of medical equipment for Children’s Hospital Foundation, assisting the Thai Alarynx Club at Siriraj Hospital, and raising funds to buy hearing aids for Setthasathian School under the Royal Patronage.
“Sing for Help 2017” charity concert’s mission is to give through music. This is a significant event which brings together 100 singing teachers and artists who are current or former students of The Professional by Kru Rodj to use their voice to present the power of giving, inviting Thais to make donations to support Ban Paew Eye Hospital’s construction and medical supplies to help underprivileged patients with eye conditions.”
