Johor Bahru City Council targets higher CSR participation from the government, corporate, and individuals to help the needy community
The Johor Bahru City Council (MBJB) will be hosting a charity dinner on 22nd September 2019, in conjunction with MBJB’s silver jubilee anniversary celebration.
The announcement was made by Mayor of Johor Bahru City Council, Dato’ Haji Amran A Rahman in his welcoming speech during a hi-tea event with the donors and recipients of the charity donation.
Last year, 14 organisations in Johor received their share of the good pie with the efforts of MBJB and the gracious hearts of the donors.
2019 will be the second year that MBJB has organised such an event after its inauguration last year in 2018, where a total of RM1.11 million was successfully collected through the sales of tables for the charity dinner.
“MBJB has decided to continue on organising charity events as such based on the success of the first edition last year which received plenty of support,” said Dato’ Haji Amran in his speech.
“I would like to remind everyone whether from the government sector, corporate or even entrepreneurs, we all have our own responsibilities toward the development of the community,” he added.
The table sales which is the main part of the charity collection is broken down into four categories which are Platinum (RM100,000 a unit), Gold (RM50,000 a unit), Silver (RM30,000 a unit), and Bronze (RM10,000 a unit).
Proceeds from the table sales will be channeled to the Raja Zarith Sofiah Foundation, Johor Bahru City Foundation, Cerebral Palsy Johor, Johor Bahru Down Syndrome Association and others.
Gracing the charity dinner will be HRH the Sultan of Johor along with his consort, as well as state officials and other guests of honour.
