10 HOUR JAM FOR KIDS IN
NEED AND ARTISTS’ RELIEFS
Jaya, 20th September 2022 – Malaysian Association of Hotels (MAH) together with
Malaysian Food & Beverage Executives Association, Rotary Club of Metro
Kuala Lumpur and APEX Malaysia Petaling Jaya will be organising the 21st
Charity Jam Session 2022 at D’Mando Restaurant & Bar.
President, Ms. Christina Toh highlighted that the aspiration this year is to raise
funds for University Malaya Medical Centre’s Paediatric
Intensive Care Unit (PICU), a tertiary referral centre for critically ill
children and also to all the musicians who have been performing for the Charity
Jam Sessions (CJS) since its inception, lending their talents to support worthy
causes over the years.
CJS is the longest running corporate social
responsibility programme which was first organized in the year 2000 to growing
success. Funds are raised by entertaining patrons to great food accompanied by stellar
music played by local talents. The proceeds from the donations and all sales of
food and beverages will then be presented to the aforementioned beneficiaries.
SS Rajaa, who initiated the Charity Jam Session and
championed each event as the Organizing Chairman, said that in the past 20
years, the collective amount raised is RM1.5 million. These funds were
channeled to 11 different organizations and 3 individuals. “I feel very blessed
for being able to do this for the past 20 years and I hope CJS will grow to be
even more successful in the coming years” said Rajaa.
Various parties have come together in support of
CJS - from hotels and businesses that help provide the venues, F&B items
and prize vouchers to the local musicians who tirelessly perform in the name of
charity. This year, for 10 hours straight, an ensemble of bands will be taking
turns to sing and jam from 12 noon until 10 at night. The lineup of bands are,
but not limited to Stag, Vatos Locos, The Cauliflower Robbery, Rasta
Syndicate, Jetliners, Small Stones, Shahrin Band, Project X Band, Karisma,
Lewis Pragasam, Roofieology and DJ Soya. In addition to the
entertainment, many fun activities such as dart games, lucky draws and Dutch
auctions are also available for patrons to participate in.
The Charity Jam Session will be utilizing the event’s exclusive
coupons as the main form of currency during the event. The coupons will be
priced at RM15.00 per piece and RM150.00 per booklet of 10 pieces. Food and
Beverages will be sold at RM15.00 per serving/portion. Activities such as dart
