Continuing its longstanding commitment towards building stronger, resilient communities, Eupe Corporation Berhad (Eupe) recently raised RM100,000 at its Building Hope Charity Bazaar, which will go towards helping those in need.
The event, with over 20 booths representing various community groups, non-governmental organisations and Eupe employees, had a strong and welcome turnout from the local community as well Eupe’s business partners and associates.
Visitors were treated to an array of merchandise which include handicrafts, baked goods, food and beverages, gift items, as well as a myriad of family-friendly fun-fair games.
The charity bazaar was part of Eupe’s Sustainability Plus programme that aims to build stronger communities by funding a range of worthy community-building projects, as well as assist organisations whose mission is to build more resilient community networks and support those in need.
“As a property developer, we believe our commitment to sustainability doesn’t stop at the boundaries of our projects,” said Dato’ Beh Huck Lee, Eupe’s Group Managing Director.
“The Building Hope Charity Bazaar allows us to support the community in a clear, focused, and consistent way by partnering directly with worthy organisations that can leverage the event to sell their products and promote their causes. We are pleased to see such strong response from our business partners, employees and the public who supported in purchasing coupons and have stepped up to help the less fortunate through this event.”
Close to RM70,000 of the Bazaar’s proceeds were raised by NGOs who participated in the Bazaar with booths and other attractions. A further RM30,000 raised for the event will be donated back to all the participating NGOs.
“We are pleased to be given the opportunity to participate in this charity bazaar. The concept of obtaining pre-sales was fantastic and response from the public was excellent. Sales of our handcrafted merchandise moved very fast as the event drew a good crowd,” said Natalie Tan, Head of Transformational Enterprises from Dignity For Children Foundation.
