GLENEAGLES’S SECOND PINK JAZZY AFFAIR FOR GOOD CAUSE
Dato’ Siti Nurhaliza Lends her Voice for Breast Cancer Awareness
For the second consecutive time, Gleneagles Kuala Lumpur (GKL) is set to bring another glitzy, grand finale to the breast cancer awareness month with the ‘Pink Jazzy Affair 2012’. This exclusive fundraising dinner show is announced to take place on Friday, 30 November 2012 at the new Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur.
“Gleneagles has long been a supporter of breast cancer awareness. We understand the pertinence of the fact that 1 in 20 women in Malaysia are at risk of breast cancer in their lifetime. That is why we continually seek ways to create events and initiatives to support breast cancer awareness,” said Amir Firdaus Abdullah, Regional Chief Executive Officer of Gleneagles Hospitals and Chief Executive Officer of Gleneagles Kuala Lumpur.
‘Pink Jazzy Affair’ event is organized for a meaningful cause – to reach out to those in need. This event brings together live entertainment from Malaysia’s most successful entertainer Dato’ Siti Nurhaliza and renowned celebrities such as Donne Ray Radford (The Platters), Atilia Haron and hosted by Harith Iskandar.
“I am excited when I was invited to be part of ‘Pink Jazzy Affair’ this year. Music is an incredible and fun way to bring people together. Performing has always been my passion and I am thrilled to be involved with a good cause like breast cancer awareness, which affects women worldwide,” said the Malaysia’s No. 1 songbird, Dato’ Siti Nurhaliza who took the centre stage at the Royal Albert Hall London back in 2005.
Proceeds raised from this event will benefit the Breast Cancer Welfare Association Malaysia (BCWA), to help those affected with breast cancer and to provide education as part of the initiative in promoting prevention of breast cancer in rural areas. Part of the proceeds will also go to Gleneagles Charity Programme ‘A Heart for A Heart’ which helps underprivileged families with children born with congenital heart defects.
“Events like ‘Pink Jazzy Affair’ help put a lighter note on the seriousness of breast cancer awareness. While the month of October may be internationally deemed as ‘breast cancer awareness month’, the awareness and education initiatives should continue all year long,” said Ranjit Kaur, Chief Executive Officer of BCWA Malaysia.
“We are grateful and excited that we have gotten the support from so many prominent names and people. We are really looking forward to a successful event where people can have an unforgettable night while serving a good cause,” said Amir.
