‘Whale of Fortune’ fundraising event for Malaysian Nature Society
We organized a fundraising event for Malaysian Nature Society (MNS) in conjunction with World Animal Day. The event was held at the ‘One Utama’ shopping complex in Kuala Lumpur where the management gave me a free space from 3-7th October.
The event was called ‘Whale of Fortune’ because it involved a unicorn whale (endangered species) and participants paid to spin the wheel of fortune. The money collected from the wheel of fortune was donated to MNS. We gave out information and asked the public to sign a petition to save unicorn whales.
The event was a great success and we gained the support of many sponsors: Ocean Minded, Crocs, Old Town White Coffee, Celebrity Fitness, Neway Karaoke, Petsmore, Auntie Anne’s, Reef, Volcom, Skin Food, Good Evening Bangkok, Sushi King, ChatterBox HK, O’Briens Irish Sandwich Cafe, Juice Works,Simply Chicken and Michael & Guys. A special thanks to NEC Corporation of Malaysia for their kind donation of RM200 and support during the event.
We also received kind support from local universities/colleges like University Tunku Abdul Rahman, Segi College and etc. We look forward to work together again next year for a even greater World Animal Day. Melvin Long, General Manager.
