KUALA LUMPUR: At least six charity organisations stand to benefit from the inaugural Malaysian Charity Draw, which will be launched on Wednesday by Datin Seri Dr Siti Hasmah Mohd Ali. 

They are Society for the Rehabilitation of the Disabled Selangor and Federal Territory, Malaysian Association for the Blind, Ronald McDonald Children’s Charities Fund of Malaysia, Yayasan Orang Kurang Upaya Kelantan, Persatuan Daybreak untuk Kebajikan Orang-Orang Cacat and the Yayasan Sin Chew Medical Fund. 

Held under the auspices of PPOC, the project offers a grand prize of a Porsche Boxter S sports car worth RM500,000. Other prizes include computers and televisions. 

“We would like to raise RM5mil and hope to give to more than the six charities listed. We also hope to give to more charities next year,” said organising committee chairman Datin Tina Ali yesterday after the pre-launch announcement at the Securities Commission. 

The launch will be held at the JW Marriott Hotel where the Porsche will be unveiled. 

Ticket sales will begin at the launch and continue until March 15 or until tickets run out. The draw will be held during the week of the Petronas Malaysian Grand Prix 2004. 

The tickets, costing RM50 each, will also be sold at Sin Chew offices in selected towns and at road shows, including the KL International Motorshow next month. 

The public can also buy tickets online via Maybank2U.com by logging on to www.malaysiancharitydraw.org.my. Payments can be made through Maybank accounts or selected credit cards.
