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.

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.
