IN conjunction with Mother’s Day, Lion-Parkson Foundation (LPF) chairman Puan Sri Chelsia Cheng hosted a fundraising event at Parkson Pavilion Kuala Lumpur.

During the event, Cheng spoke about her book My cause, my music, which is a compilation of her articles published in two newspapers in Malaysia and in South Korea, featuring her calligraphy, artwork and other causes.

This was followed by a book-signing session.

She said her book on her late mother would be published next year.

Guests were served “Chelsia’s Garden” Korean flower tea and signature desserts by C & See Lounge.

Registration fees, proceeds from the sale of carnations and Cheng’s book at the event as well as other donations went towards LPF’s causes, which are education and medical treatment for the less fortunate.

A total of RM7,061.73 was raised.

At the event, LPF donated RM20,000 to Selayang Hospital’s Cataract Centre with Cheng presenting the cheque to cataract centre head Dr Mohamad Aziz Salowi.

Also present were LPF trustees Datin Wira Dr Tan Niap Ming and Chow Mun Seong, and Fizidris Mediq Sdn Bhd chief executive officer Raja Idris Raja Arif Shah.

The funds will enable 86 patients from the B40 group to undergo cataract operations.

All donations to LPF are tax-exempt and can be made to its account at Alliance Bank – 141850010001473 – with details of the donor (full name, IC number and address) sent to corpcomm@lion.com.my for tax-exemption receipts.
