On the eve of 5th September 2014, the SWCS Fundraising Dinner ended with a high note where everyone went home with a satisfactory smile. Although held for the very first time in SWCS history, the fundraising dinner held in Hakka Hall, KK was a resounding success. Truly, we are honoured to have Tuan Yang Terutama Tun Datuk Seri Panglima Dr. Haji Juhar bin Haji Mahirudin and Datuk Pang Nyuk Ming to grace this fundraising dinner. Not to mention the large amount of support from other government bodies, NGOs and individuals that had attended the dinner. Their presence alone is a clear testament of support towards wetlands conservation.
Clearly, the main objective of the dinner is to raise funds for theconservation, preservation and management of wetlands in Sabah. Thanks to the contribution of all our kind donors, we’ve received a generous amount of about RM 131,300 from the fundraising dinner. Of course, the night itself is not only about raising funds but to also acknowledge exceptional individuals and groups for their contributions towards wetland conservation. Congratulations to the recipients for outstanding contributions, which are Eugene Cheah, Lee Yoon Ling, Siti Rusni Hanafiah, Kan Yaw Chong, and Mastupang bin Somoi & associates.
The night was accompanied with scrumptious food, gorgeous batiks and jaw dropping performances. We could not ever ask for a better outcome and we will definitely be looking forward towards organizing more fundraising dinners in the future.
