GEORGE TOWN: The Malaysian Association of Hotels (MAH) Penang Chapter brought cheers to the Penang Thalassaemia Society (PTS) by raising RM33,325 for the underprivileged group.
The fund was raised from a one-day MAH charity jam session held at the Bayview Hotel's Carmen Club.
Some 14 local and international bands converged to perform live in aid of PTS.
The charity event was a runaway success as it exceeded MAH's targeted amount of RM30,000.
MAH national chairman, Reginald Pereira, later presented a mock cheque to PTS secretary Look Keng Weai.
Speaking at a press conference after the presentation, MAH Penang Chapter chairman Marry Ann Harris thanked the bands, sponsors and the public for their contributions to PTS.
Harris expressed her gratitude to those who devoted effort in staging the jam session.
She also thanked the public for contributing towards helping those who are less fortunate.
Also present at the event was the charity jam organising chairman Lawrence Perera and state Tourism Development committee chairman, Law Heng Kiang.
