KUALA LUMPUR: Oyster sauce manufacturer Lee Kum Kee has pledged to donate RM50,000 and proceeds from its One Million Bottle consumer campaign to the construction of Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman (Utar).
Its general manager for Asia Raymond Tse said it hoped to sell a million bottles of oyster sauce within three months and 10 sen from each bottle would go towards the building fund.
The sale of the million bottles will raise RM100,000, bringing Lee Kum Kee’s total contribution towards the Utar building fund to RM150,000.
At a press conference in MCA headquarters here yesterday, Tse said that due to logistic reasons, the campaign might start at the end of March.
He also assured the public that there would not be a price hike.
Each bottle will have a special sticker reminding buyers that 10 sen would go to Utar.
Deputy Culture, Arts and Tourism Minister Datuk Dr Ng Yen Yen will receive the initial RM50,000 donation from Lee Kum Kee during the Valentines Kebaya Nite at the Marriott Hotel in Putrajaya on Feb 14.
