OVER 20 children from the Kiwanis Down Syndrome Centre (KDSF) in Klang were hosted to a party by Movida at its PJ Centrestage restaurant in Section 13, Petaling Jaya.

The children and their parents enjoyed a buffet lunch, face-painting activities as well as the funny antics of a clown. Each child later went home with a gift and goodie bag.

Movida PJ Centrestage’s owner Tracy Toh also arranged for a bus to ferry the children and their parents to and from the venue.

In addition, the restaurant raised RM20,000 for KDSF Klang. The money will be used to fund the centre’s operations, such as rental of premises and teachers’ salaries.

Klang Kiwanis Club president Amanda Russell thanked Toh and her husband Gerald Lee for their generosity.

“Both the children and adults had a great time,” she said, adding that this was the second time Toh had organised a party and raised funds for KDSF Klang.

Puan Sri Christine Johari was the party’s guest-of-honour. Her late husband Tan Sri Khir Johari, fondly known as Bapa Kiwanis or Pak Khir, was instrumental in bringing Kiwanis to Malaysia following a visit to the Kiwanis International headquarters in Indiana, United States, in 1975.

He later established the Kiwanis Club of Kuala Lumpur.
