PROPERTY developer See Hoy Chan Sdn Bhd successfully raised a total of RM375,000 at a charity event that will benefit three charitable organisations.
Proceeds from the event dubbed “A Night of Music and Charity Dinner” went to the Malaysian Nature Society (MNS), National Kidney Foundation (NKF) and Pusat Penjagaan Kanak-Kanak Cacat Taman Megah.
Some 800 attendees were present at the dinner, including See Hoy Chan’s executive director Teo Chiang Khai, group director Teo Soo Chew, and executive vice-president Joe Tan.
See Hoy Chan put a musical twist to this year’s charity event, which featured the acclaimed multi-award-winning musical group Dama Orchestra.
The night also featured live performances by the band Word of The Day and a special performance put together by See Hoy Chan’s own employees.
“We took a different approach in raising funds this time around and we hope the crowd was fully entertained,” said Teo, who strongly believes in giving back to the community.
“As an organisation, we believe that our corporate responsibility to society is to give, serve and share.
“Throughout the years, we are grounded in our root values to serve society, our customers, the community and the less fortunate.
“It has been our creed and will always remain so, as it gives us strength and meaning to our lives to be able to give back to society.”
Teo presented the donations raised from the event to representatives from the three beneficiaries at a cheque presentation ceremony held after the dinner.
Each charitable organisation received a donation amount of RM125,000.
On selecting MNS as one of its beneficiaries, Teo said: “Responsible management of resources is key to preserving the future wealth of our children.
“Our commitment to sustainable practices includes continuous reappraisals of work practices, recycling and deploying new technologies that reduce the consumption of resources.
“That is why the group chose the MNS, which is a pioneer in conservation in Malaysia, as one of the beneficiaries.”
See Hoy Chan’s charity efforts over the last decade has raised about RM1.7mil in funds.
“We hope to continue seeking opportunities to touch those in need and never stop reaching out to them,” said Teo.
See Hoy Chan, which will celebrate its 75th anniversary next year, has a diversified portfolio of business interests, which include property development and investment.
Some of their current projects include Petaling Jaya’s leading commercial hub, Damansara Uptown Phase 2, Seringin Residences in Happy Garden, off Old Klang Road, and the luxurious Tujuh d’wangsa in Titiwangsa, Kuala Lumpur.
