The ketupat which is a symbol of Malaysian unity and the spirit of Hari Raya, helped raise RM20,000 in funds after the mall pledged to donate RM1 to charity for every ketupat woven and collected during the campaign.
“Today we close ‘The Beauty of Raya’ celebrations in high spirits as we achieved our record goal of the 20,000 ketupats woven to raise funds for charity homes in need. This would not have been possible without the Pavilion KL community who played a role in our initiative so thank you for your support,” said Dato’ Joyce Yap, CEO (Retail) of Pavilion Kuala Lumpur.
100 children from four charity homes including Pusat Jagaan Cahaya Kasih Bestari, Pertubuhan Kebajikan Anak-Anak Harapan, Yayasan Chow Kit and Pertubuhan Kebajikan Ehsan Ash-Shakur (PEKEAS), attended the event and were later treated to a surprise visit to the Marvel Studios: Ten Years Of Heroes exhibition at Pavilion Elite.
