Eden Charity Food Fair 2008
Country & Western Dance by Kiddies Kindergarten.
It was a bright sunny day on 21 June 2008 when more than 3,000 people thronged Eden Handicap Service Centre Charity Food Fair 2008 at the Caring Complex field. The event was officiated by YB Tuan Phee Boon Poh, Penang State Exco for Health, Welfare and Caring Society. In his speech, YB praised Eden Handicap for their dedication and commitment in caring for the disabled.
The Charity Fair managed to raise more than RM150,000 for its operational funds to provide various free services to people with disabilities in the community. The targeted amount was met through the brisk sales of coupons and the public's generous sponsorships and donations.
Visitors came early to the Fair even before it was opened. Under the large airy canopy were properly positioned tables and chairs with wall and stand fans strategically placed for the convenience and comfort of visitors. Mobile toilets were also in place.
Rows of stalls paraded many varieties of delicious food. The rich aroma of delicious food filled the air as stalls were clanking their woks like a cooking competition. The food was sizzling hot and was selling fast and some were sold out before noon.
The 100 stalls put up by individuals, groups, private and corporate companies, non-profit organizations and churches, also sold handicraft products, souvenirs, thrift items through jumble sales, health products, facial spa and face painting.
The event was packed with entertaining programs which included lovely and energetic dances and songs by various performers and a clown. Music, songs, witty and comical announcements brightened up the day.
The event saw many donors, sponsors and volunteers from all walks of life coming together and trying their best to help the community. We are thankful to all these good people for their kind and generous contributions and labor of love that has enabled this year's Charity Food Fair a roaring success. We want to say a ' BIG Thank You' to each and everyone who has helped in one way or another. It is people like you who makes a difference in the lives of the disabled. Thank you for joining us in this worthy cause.
