SIPJ’s 20th Anniversary Fund Raising Dinner

Categories: our work

SIPJ celebrated its 20th anniversary with a fund raising dinner at Renaissance Hotel KL on 4 October 2014. It was a lovely cosy dinner with corporate sponsors Sunway Education Group and Top Glove Foundation, Vital Factor,  Rexit Sdn Bhd, Sasbadi Sdn Bhd, Home – The GAEA Shop, who sponsored our lovely umbrellas for the door gifts, Popalloon, who sponsored the balloon headgear, and Black Pepper Lab, who sponsored photography.  Entertainment was kindly provided by the award-winning and very talented tenor, James Long! Thank you for your support for our work to empower and educate women and girls!

Soroptimist sisters from SI Bangsar, SI Damansara, SI Sentul and SI Shah Alam also joined us. The theme was Carnivale and everyone had a splendid time celebrating our 20 years of service!

Dato’ Anusha Santhirasthipam was the organising chairperson, President-Elect Phng Li Kim was our celebrity Emcee, Sharon Wong and IPP Kim Fong were in charge of decor, while Joyce Kee was our floor manager. After months of preparation, the evening went off without a hitch. A big thank you to the organising committee!

We had fun and also raised funds to get our three flagship projects for 2015 off the road! Our projects are Youth Against Social Ills (YASI), Supporting Hope in Education (SHINE) and Kampung Ku.

Here are some photos of the evening, and the rest of the photos can be seen at our facebook album.

A powerpoint SIPJ’s 20th Anniversary was also presented on the evening.
