A fireworks display for Penang’s New Year celebration is called off, for a good cause.
The organiser will instead channel the allocation to flood victims in the country. Instead of fireworks, Creativision D.C. Sdn Bhd managing director Adelyn Lim said the Penang Golden 2007 (PG2007) celebration this Sunday night at Gurney Drive here would see thousands of balloons released.
She said it was a way of wishing for the safety of those affected by the floods and for better weather ahead.
"We will also organise a PG2007 Flood Victim Support Campaign to raise funds to help flood victims. "
The amount collected will be donated to the Malaysian Red Cresent Society,” she said. Lim said Malton Berhad had taken the lead by donating RM50,000 to kick-start the campaign, as well as sponsoring at least 5,000 balloons.
