BRICKFIELDS Asia College (BAC) student Shirley Vun Siew Fui, 19, won a Lotus Elise in the college’s Lotus Draw recently.
BAC managing director Raja Singham said the Lotus Draw was part of the “BAC Gives Back Millions” campaign established as a means of giving back to its students.
The British marque is stamped as a true driver’s car and is noted for its light weight, which is in line with the company’s motto of “to increase performance, add lightness”.
“We decided to do something unconventional to add the fun element into the campaign,” said Raja.
The campaign, which commenced last year, saw the college giving away round-trip tickets to watch the FA Cup 2014 finals in London, a Mini One car and other goodies to lucky BAC students.
Premjay Canaganayagam from BAC said the partnership with Lotus was formed due to the connection between Lotus’ British heritage and the college’s UK-based pre-university and degree programmes.
“In terms of performance, BAC’s motto of providing the ‘fastest and smartest way to over 100 UK law and business degrees’ is essentially similar to Lotus’ motto.”
Present at the Lotus Draw event were BAC chief operating officer Aria Singham and PricewaterhouseCoopers executive director Mark Pui.
Aside from students, BAC has also been dutifully giving back to the community.
Raja said volunteers from BAC would be distributing items worth RM30,000 to flood victims in Kuala Krai on Friday.
