Mock Cheque presentation by YB Dato' Lye Siew Weng to the Directors of Eden Handicap Service Centre
Eden 2007 Foodfair
The field of Kompleks Masyarakat Penyang, Penang became lively with colourful canopies packed with food stalls, games entertainment and fun-filled activities. More than 2,000 people supported the annual Charity Food Fair on 9th June 2007 which was organized by Eden Handicap Service Centre in aid of the organization's operation fund was an event to be remembered.
For EDEN, it was a splendid successful event - the RM151,000.00 raised was a joint effort of the public and supporters.
Officially opened by Yang Berhormat Dato' Lye Siew Weng who donated RM3,000.00 to our organization. The crowd was entertained with an opening dance "Make in India" by children from Lucky Starz Academy. The Century Methodist Church also donated RM3,000.00 towards this fund raising event.
There was a total of 112 stalls featuring different cuisine served, all 100% sponsored by hotels, companies like KPMG, Fairchild Semiconductor, churches, NGOs, generous individuals from our regular supporters as well as new comers. The most attractive stall of the day was undeniably the Indonesian Consulate stall which was decorated with colourful umbrellas, striking table cloth matched with Indonesian display items.
There were many performances going on stage including Equaline who performed line dance, Cactus Aerobic Centre with Hip Hop Dance, Yoga dance, Lucky Starz, special appearance of Samuel Chong with his illusion magic, and many more, entertaining the crowd with medley of songs. There were also jumble sales with old, used, and new items. Handicrafts made by members of Eden's handicraft unit were also on sale. It shows how much the physically restricted can do.
Clown with stilt limbs grabbed attention of little kids, giving away balloons and kept the children giggling. Many also enjoyed free face painting and put their hands out for a 'henna-ed' look. The young ones were seen flocking to the fun site where they were enjoyed fishing and picking their luck in the games stall to win attractive prizes.
This is perhaps the most arduous of the tasks required during this event but it gives everyone involved the most satisfaction not only because we're doing it for a good cause but also because of the display of unselfish cooperation and team work by everyone.
Thank You for your continual support! We look forward to seeing you at our future events.
