The money was raised through the hotel-initiated month-long Red Ribbon Donation Drive conducted last year.
The fund provides monthly aid to help meet nutritional and schooling needs of children as well as to help HIV/AIDS positive children get treatment.
A mock cheque was presented by the hotel’s general manager Jonas A. Schuermann to the chairman of MAF, Professor Dr Adeeba Kamarulzaman.
Datin Paduka Marina Mahathir was also present at an appreciation dinner organised for the committee of the Red Ribbon Gala Dinner 2006 at the hotel.
