Gold on the mind: Members with yellow or gold dyed hair arriving at the dinner held at the community hall in Chai Leng Park, Butterworth.

BUTTERWORTH: About 1,000 people turned up for a charity dinner said to be organised by Chinese national Zhang Jian – the self-proclaimed “future richest man in the world”.

Members who attended the dinner at Chai Leng Park on Sunday were promised a RM1,000 incentive, provided they sported the “right look”.

It was said each person had to pay RM200 for the dinner, with only those who dyed their hair yellow or gold allowed to enter.

Most of the diners arrived in non-Penang registered vehicles, while some showed up in chartered buses.

Reporters were barred from entering the community hall to cover the dinner.

Zhang was, however, not seen at the dinner.

In April, he also allegedly organised similar charity dinners in Johor Baru, Kuala Lumpur as well as in Sabah.

According to major Chinese dailies, Zhang’s multi-level marketing company is said to be making a comeback in Malaysia by organising several dinners recently.

Some company members claimed Zhang was in the Maldives.

According to media reports, hundreds of members, mostly from China, also attended one of the dinners.

Some of the women came with their heads shaved, while others were spotted with tattoos of Zhang to show their support, and several male members wore dresses to the event.
