It was being supported by Everchem’s employee, parents and staff from the Korean School of Malaysia and Shin Sun Mi’s Market.
Participating in this event is part of the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activity by Everchem and The Korean Education to give back to the community. According to the CEO of Everchem, Mr. James Kim who is also the Chairman of the Korean Education foundation, joining the charity event such as this has always been Everchem’s intention to give back to those in need. It is for a noble cause and it is one many other small ways that he thinks we could do and at the same time to have fun and meet new people to say the least. According to the Principal Mr. Jang Hong Jae of Korean School of Malaysia, it has always been one of the school calendar activities to participate in such event, for a good cause, it is also to nurture the good-will spirit between the parents and students.
The charity event starts at 12:00pm and ends at 1:00am past midnight. The booth participants were split into two sessions that is between 12:00pm to 5:00pm and 5:00pm to 10:00pm, with 15 booths operating in each session. More than 2,000 visitors visited each session for the charitable occasion.
It was a wonderful experience indeed. The charity events allows us, to enjoy ourselves while giving with the flow good music from all genres-from Golden Oldies, R&B, C&W to Current Hits, flowing beautifully into The Victorian Ballroom of Holiday Villa Subang, overlooking a very scenic lake with the beautiful wood paneling and grand chandeliers that the ballroom has. It was indeed, a great platform and memorable experience for all of us involved and we will definitely do it again next year.
