A CHAR­ITY EVEN­ING WITH ADELE: HER LIFE AND SONGS

Malaysia Tatler - - FACES -

True to their an­nual tra­di­tion of com­bin­ing char­ity with good food, com­pany and mu­sic, Shangri-la Kuala Lumpur’s area direc­tor of com­mu­ni­ca­tions Dato’ Rose­marie Wee and Malaysia Tatler’s man­ag­ing direc­tor Florence Fang did it again by or­gan­is­ing a fundrais­ing con­cert star­ring Naomi Price in char­ac­ter as singing sen­sa­tion Adele. The funds raised from the con­cert went to the aid of chil­dren with life-threat­en­ing heart dis­ease. A to­tal of RM300,000 was raised, thanks to the sup­port of gen­er­ous mem­bers of so­ci­ety, which en­abled fam­i­lies of the chil­dren to af­ford the surg­eries at Gle­nea­gles Hos­pi­tal and save their chil­dren’s lives. Ini­tially, only four chil­dren were sup­posed to un­dergo the surgery but the re­sponse from the donors was so pos­i­tive that two more chil­dren were added to the list. Bene­fac­tors were able to meet some of the re­cip­i­ents them­selves as some of the chil­dren and their fam­i­lies were present dur­ing the cheque pre­sen­ta­tion cer­e­mony that even­ing.
