A CHARITY concert will be held at 8pm on May 22 at the Wawasan Open University (WOU) theatre in Penang to raise RM150,000 for the Mount Miriam Cancer Hospital.
The concert, titled Festival of Music & Songs, is organised by the Adventist Community Services which is the charitable arm of the Seventh-Day Adventist Corpora-tion in peninsula Malaysia.
It will feature the UNAI Chorale, a musical organisation of the Universitas Advent Indonesia from Bandung in Indonesia.
Organising committee chairman Tang Cheng Chee said admission was only by invitation cards which were available with a contribution of RM50 per card. Only 400 seats were available.
“We also hope the public and organisations will give their support by placing advertisements, priced from RM1,000, in our souvenir programme book or simply donate towards the event,” Tang told a recent press conference at Komtar.
She said a tax exemption receipt would be given for all donations of RM200 and above.
Sister Katherine Mascrinhos, from the Franciscan Missionaries of the Divine Motherhood whose nuns serve at the hospital, thanked the public for the support to the hospital so far.
Tang said both the hospital and the Adventist Community Services were non-profit organisations which depended very much on the goodwill and support of the public and organisations.
