S P Setia Berhad has successfully raised a record-breaking RM8,623,000; the highest amount collected to-date to support the S P Setia Foundation’s initiatives namely the advancement of education of the less fortunate children in Malaysia, implementation of sustainable programmes for the underprivileged communities, involvement in relief efforts, as well as to support the beneficiaries under the Setia Caring School Programme.
Aptly themed “Love & Care”, the 16th S P Setia Foundation Charity Dinner was graced by the guest of honour and newly appointed S P Setia Foundation patron, Director General of Education Dato' Sri Dr Khair bin Mohamad Yusof.
A total of 39 pupils from three schools from the Setia Caring School Programme also teamed up and performed together for the opening act of the night. From strangers to friends, they were coached by public volunteers on the choreography and vocal skills. Most of all, they were taught how to learn, respect and understand each other’s culture and values.
Through the art of quilling, Setia volunteers and the pupils from three schools were also involved in preparing “Thank You” door gifts for all guests of the night as well as the token of appreciation to the top 10 donors.
The night also saw various performances by Team Setia and popular stand-up comedians Kuah JenHan, Dr. Jason Leong and Phoon Chi Ho.
