2 June 2017:An evening of fun, food and festivities in the Ramadhan spirit of giving .
The Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (the Centre) recently embraced the festive spirit and played host to 100 children from Living Hope and Yayasan Generasi Gemilang (GG), as well as 50 National Kidney Foundation (NKF) Malaysia patients and their families at its 10th annual buka puasa gathering.
Kicking off the exciting gathering, the Centre’s award-winning chefs, team members and media friends led the young VIPs in decorating giant ‘Hari Raya-themed’ cookies with colourful royal icing, sprinkles, chocolate buttons and an assortment of other delicious toppings!
Guests were then treated to a sumptuous buka puasa feast, dubbed ‘Kampung Classics’, combining contemporary and traditional favourites.
Congratulating the Centre on their 10th annual buka puasa gathering, Founder and Chairman of Living Hope, Dr Peggy Wong, said: “We have been a part of the Centre’s buka puasa festivities since 2008 and every year, the bond between the Centre’s team members and the children deepens. It is always wonderful to see an organisation like the Centre sharing the festive season with the underprivileged and the children love coming to the Centre’s buka puasa treat, especially those (children) who are breaking fast outside the home for the first time.”
The delightful night ended with General Manager of the Centre Alan Pryor and the senior management team handing out sweet treats courtesy of the Culinary team, and duit raya to the VIPs from Living Hope and GG, as well as NKF patients and their families.
