A charity concert organised by the 1Malaysia Penang Welfare Club is expected to gather more than 80,000 people at the Ho Chiang school field in Jalan Lim Lean Teng on 20th April 2013 (Saturday).
Club president Geh Choh Chun said, the 1Malaysia Penang International Charity Drive, themed “Unity, Peace and Prosperity”, was aimed at collecting RM5 million for charities in the state. He said the public needed only to donate a minimum of RM1 to watch the concert, adding that donation forms would be published in local newspapers.
He said the public should bring the original copy of the form to redeem their tickets at the ticket collection centre. “They can choose from two zones whereby, RM1 is the minimum for the Unity Zone, and RM2 for the Peace Zone. Entrance is free for children below 12”, he told reporters here Monday. Additionally, Geh also mentioned that there would not be any political speeches, talks or dialogues that night.
The event, sponsored by several private companies, will feature local and international artistes such as Ning Baizura and Suchitra who will be sharing the stage with several international artistes such as American hip-hop artists Busta Rhymes, Red Foo of LMFAO, Ludacris, and Swizz Beatz, and Asian superstars Gigi Leong, Grasshopper, Leon Lai, Alan Tham, Hacken Lee, and George Lam.
Goh said free shuttle bus services would be provided at several locations, such as Autocity Juru, Pacific Megamall Perai, Prangin Mall Komtar and Queensbay Mall, Bayan Lepas to reduce traffic congestion.
