Whoa~ I've been "celebrating" everyday since christmas eve..*That's the day I finished all assignments and presentations*
Not bad huh??
Now now, I've blogged up till Mamma Mia and today's update is about MeetOut!! [Charity Edition]
27 Dec 2008
Monica (my sister) told me about an event she's co-organising with a friend Phee Tat..
Its a meet up session where we bring our friends to Long Bar, One World Hotel..
This event was primarily for friends to meet up with friends and get to know more about each other..
But with my sister's brilliant mind, she changed it into a charity edition..
How did she do that??
Firstly, it was a meet up session for Phee Tat's friends only..
*Which I wasn't involved*
But since its a charity event now, the more the merrier and better..
So my sis asked me to support the event..
*and I'm involved now!!*
A charity event MUST have a beneficiary..Who's that??
Sylvia Hyams, one of the six mothers honoured the Mother of the Year on Mother’s Day 2001 by the Kiwanis Club of Taman Tun Dr Ismail.
She's was a nurse filled with compassion.
22 years ago, Sylvia Hyams adopted Peter, a baby who was rescued by a gardener from a drain in the Damansara area with his umbilical cord still attached.
Peter suffered from cerebral palsy, bronchitis and asthma. He was also blind.
3 years later, Sylvia Hyams adopted Charlene, a baby who has Down Syndrome and is mute.
Charlene was found in the hospital canteen when she was still a baby.
Since Oct 31, Peter had been hospitalised for lung infection, first at a private hospital before being transferred to Selayang Hospital.
He experienced breathing difficulties and had to be fed using a tube.
Sadly, Peter passed away recently.
The Hyams' family now faces with hospital bills of more than RM50,000.
Compassion has its price to pay. But is the lemon worth the squeeze?
To Sylvia Hyams, I'm sure it is.
How did we raise fund for them?
Okay, this event was primarily for networking..
So a nice place was chosen..
*I know..We could raise more funds if we go to cheaper places!!*
But no one SHOULD criticise us for it because we raised funds IN CONJUNCTION with the meet up session..
Other than meeting old friends whom we didn't meet for years,
We had a donation box which people can donate money at their own free will..
*Star of the night*
We also had a mini auction for people to auction out their things (including themselves) and the money will go into the donation box as well..
There are auction items like wine, liquor, dates (with real humans), kisses (by real humans) etc..
This is how it works..
1st. The winning bidder has to insert the money in the donation box..
Then, he claims his prize!!!
*This is the kiss-on-the-cheeks auction..*
Then there's the movie date auction..
I bid the Khoo twin sisters (Su Ann and Su Lin) for RM150..
But the prize doesn't go to me..
It goes to someone I was bidding for..*hehe*
Monica was auctioned out too!! Winning bid at RM430..
Daddy wasn't protecting his daughter!!
Kenling was bidding for Monica and Daddy just wanted to raise the bid..
Mana tau Kenling only bidded until RM400 before giving up.
Boo you, Kenling..RM430 was my dad's final call..
You could've won with RM450..
Then there was a movie date auction for Manhand's Daeren Tan and Day Dream's Ryan Tan..
I don't know who won the bid..
I think its my sister..haha!! *Refer to photo*
Oh yeah!! And then there's a pool competition and a dart competition..
Entry fee is RM10 and the money will go to the beneficiary as well..
The winner walks away with a bottle of wine..
So many different activities to raise fund right??
Okay okay..Now, who went for the event??
Its organised by DJians!!
Of course there are chicks la right??!!! *Since we're so famous for lengluis..*
Yeah..My parents are there to support my sis's work..hehe~
They're pretty cool with charities..
So yeah..My family is a charitable family..
The whole family spend more than RM700 for donation + auctions..
Thats slightly over 30% of the funds collected..
Other than DJians, lots of my friends are there to..
*Thanks guys for coming..*
*DJians + Monash* (left) *Yuk Chai Primary School* (right)
Other than that, there's more DJians..
Not to forget Yvette, the only Tarcian..
Samson, the only Jetavanian *cuz he's the only one I called*
and Desmond, the only IRCian *I knew he'd come even if I didn't call him*
That wraps up the whole thing..hehe~
Oh yeah..We collected slightly more than RM2000 that night..I think~
Its not bad ddi cuz half of us are students, and another half (or less than half) are working..
Well, I sure hope this amount helps the Hyams' family a little..
Really miss seeing you peeps there..
