Hitting a High Note
A CHARITY EVENING WITH ADELE: HER LIFE AND SONGS
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.
