Penang Animal Sanctuary Society - Concert

I was out today asking for donations and also trying to sell the tickets for P.A.S.S. up coming Charity concert. There aren't many who know about P.A.S.S. let alone the concert. So, I'm copying what came out in The Star papers today. Nanyang Siang Pau had a write up on P.A.S.S. too and it was on 25th March, 2010. Below is the article that appeared today in The Star (Metro). To know a little bit more click here.

Concert to raise funds for new animal shelter

THE Penang Animal Sanctuary Society (PASS) is organising a charity concert to raise funds for a new animal shelter in Relau for stray dogs and cats as well as abandoned animals such as birds and reptiles.

Themed ‘Together We Care’, the concert at Berjaya Georgetown Hotel at 8pm on April 10 will feature performances by the Penang Free School orchestra, Wanita Mutiara Choir by wives of assemblymen and solo singers.

PASS president Datuk Leslie Lee said they aimed to raise about RM150,000 to kick start the project on a 0.8ha plot of land leased from the Penang Municipal Council on Jalan Relau.

He said the proposed facilities for the shelter included a nursery, an exercise runway, a clinic and a rehabilitation centre.

“The society seeks to practise a ‘no-kill’ policy as it goes against the basic principals of peaceful co-existence promoted by all major religions,” he told a press conference on Friday.

Lee said tickets, priced at RM10, RM30, RM50 and RM200, could be obtained by calling Mr Parama Nathan, Vice-President of PASS at 019-5566707 or Nornee at 04-2634190.

“We also welcome contributions from well-wishers or those who wish to advertise in the concert’s souvenir programme,” he said. :o)
