LE Marché de Noël or The Christmas Market successfully raised RM100,000 through the My French Tropical Bazaar.
The bazaar was a special one-day event in the run-up to the market’s 10th Christmas charity bazaar at the end of the year.
The funds will be channelled to non-governmental organisations Make-A-Wish Malaysia and A-Heart for A-Heart in aid of underprivileged children battling life-threatening illnesses and to fulfil their greatest wishes.
Held at W Kuala Lumpur Hotel for the first time, the special bazaar saw 65 vendors offering a myriad of premium goods, exquisite handicrafts as well as gastronomic delights.
Adding more excitement to the event was a unique French experience – an Apéro (pre-dinner drinks and appetisers) that was held later at night, further contributing to the charitable cause.
French Ambassador to Malaysia Roland Galharague was present at the event.
Since its debut in 2011, Le Marché de Noël has raised more than RM1.3mil to help children with their medical treatment as well as make their wishes come true.
