Yezi at The Roof, a steamboat restaurant in Bandar Utama joined hands with The Kiwanis Club of Pantai KL to raise funds for those in need.
The charity drive is aimed at raising at least RM10,000 in funds for Kiwanis.
The money will be used to support the global “Eliminate’” project to extinguish Maternal Neonatal Tetanus, as well as help children with special needs and other community service projects.
The charity drive with Kiwanis was launched on International Parents’ Day by The Group (F&B) Sdn Bhd chief executive officer Dax Lee.
“We chose to launch this on International Parents Day to commemorate the care and love between the older and younger generations.
“We would like to call out to steamboat enthusiasts to come and savour our unique steamboat.
“Order any of our fresh handmade dumplings from now till Aug 22 for your meal, and take joy in knowing that all proceeds will go to Kiwanis,” he said.
In addition to the donations from purchases that will go to the Kiwanis Club, Yezi will be hosting a gala night for the drive on Aug 18 priced at RM105 per person.
The launch of the charity drive was attended by the underprivileged elderly from Persatuan Kebajikan Ci Hang – Cempaka Selangor, and children from the Bodhiksetra Vihara organisatio of Kuala Lumpur.
The guests were treated to Yezi’s specialty steamboat dishes, which come in five variants, including organic chicken broth, imperial canton broth, aromatic Taiwanese beef spice broth, fragrant Shao Xing wine seafood broth and wild forest truffle mushroom broth.
After the meal, a food decoration game was organised to bond the elderly and children to mark Parent’s Day.
The launch also saw a performance by special youth from the Kiwanis Club of Kluang Mandarin Day Care Center.
The mentally challenged youths travelled from Kluang to show their dance skills while raising awareness of the needs of special youths and children.
“We are very hopeful to be able to raise the amount needed so we can continue making a difference in the community, helping those in need and raising awareness.
“We sincerely hope the Malaysian steamboat fans will get together and help us achieve our target, and we would be very happy if we could raise that amount, it will surely help us out in our efforts,” said Kiwanis Malaysia past district government Adeline Chan.
The charity campaign ends on Aug 22.
Donations raised will be shared with the media, and posted on Yezi’s Facebookpage.
