For a good cause: The family of the late Yeoh Tiong Lay with representatives of 28 of 103 organisations at the private memorial event in Kuala Lumpur.

KUALA LUMPUR: The family of the late Tan Sri Yeoh Tiong Lay has donated RM10mil to 103 charitable and education bodies.

They did this in honour of the founder and chairman of the YTL Group who was an extraordinary tycoon and philanthropist.

At a private memorial event in Majestic Hotel yesterday, representatives of 28 organisations received the cheques from the Yeoh family.

The remaining 75 organisations received theirs earlier.

In a statement, the late tycoon’s eldest son Tan Sri Francis Yeoh said the donations served to commemmorate his late father philanthropic spirit and his dedication to services good for the people.

“He understood that education is a core part of continuing our nation’s transformation and spent his final years being intimately involved with the development of schools and communities across the country,” he said.

Yeoh died on Oct 18, leaving behind wife Puan Sri Tan Kai Yong, seven children, 27 grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.
