A GROUP of celebrities, who also come together as Friends of Pensonic took part in a fundraising event for the National Cancer Council Malaysia (Makna) recently.
Among the celebrities present were Amber Chia, Angel, Alan, Peng Peng, Zizan, Kelly, 98.8 Red FM deejay Sean, Hitz FM deejay JJ and Sharifah Amani.
Organised by Pensonic in conjunction with its 30th anniversary celebration, the brand also presented RM10,000 to Makna.
The donation aside, the brand would also contribute a ringgit each from customers’ purchase of Pensonic items to the Makna fund.
They could choose from any of the 100 Pensonic items available at the Carrefour outlet in Mid-Valley Megamall until August 31.
The Friends of Pensonic also did their part for charity by auctioning off a favourite personal item and donating the money to Makna.
Pensonic Brand manager Ken Kee said the Pensonic Friends campaign was started seven years ago with 12 artistes to promote Pensonic products.
“While celebrating our 30th anniversary, we also decided to do something for charity. Hence, we decided on Makna and invited the celebrities to be part of it,’’ said Kee.
At the event, guests who were chosen from the Pensonic warranty cards and Facebook contest, had the opportunity to rub shoulders with the popular artistes.
The celebrities enlivened the atmosphere further by organising games and sharing their experience working with Pensonic. They also urged the guests to make contributions to Makna.
Towards the end of the event, some lucky winners walked home with lucky draw prizes and exclusive merchandise from Pensonic.
