Inside The Jubilant 30th Anniversary Charity Auction By The Melium Group & Malaysia Tatler
For the third time round, The Melium Group and Malaysia Tatler collaborated on their signature charity auction, a noble cause in conjunction with their 30th anniversary. The aim was to raise RM 3.5 million for 12 charities, but the night, that took place at The St Regis Kuala Lumpur, culminated in a record-breaking RM4.5 million, all thanks to the generous contribution of 400 guests.
Co-chairwomen, Florence Fang, Dato’ Seri Farah Khan and Lee Jim Leng, oversaw the lively event, as auctioneers Dato’ Steve Day and Dato' Nick Lough, kept the excitement flowing as they steered the auction process for 3 hours. Of the 80 items up for bids, the highlight was a private evening and dinner with Malaysian prime minister, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad. The prized item started at RM200,000 and was snapped up for a staggering RM400,000. Besides experiences, other luxuries were up for grabs, including a 5-night luxury cruise and VIP football packages, several lots of Farah Khan couture, vintage wine, and an auction surprise of a 50.88 carat heart-shaped morganite crystal. Big winners of the evening including Dato' Sri Jeffrey Raymond, Nicholas Bloy and Datin Azila Caramella, made their way to a beautiful dinner service, peppered with a live performance by opera singer Fiona Mariah and tunes by Janet Lee.
