FIFTEEN local artistes will showcase their talents at a charity high-tea concert based on the theme ‘Tender Care: Vibrant Health for Quality Life’ scheduled for September 13, from 2pm to 5.30pm at the Indera Samudra Grand Hall of The Empire Hotel & Country Club.

Speaking at a press conference yesterday, Siti Kaprawi, the Event Manager who is also an Executive Committee member of the Women Graduates Association – which is hosting the event – said, the two-hour event will feature Fakhrul Razi, Maria Grace Koh (Eia), Aziz Harun, Ju Ju, Hani S, Flora and Zoe as well as performances from the Artemyst dance crew and a Fitness Zone team.

Siti Kaprawi said the event aims to raise funds for underprivileged families, especially for their children as well as creating a nutrition-sensitive education programme.

Tickets are priced at $100 per person or $1,000 per table (10 people). The response so far has been very encouraging and so far 50 tables have been sold. In addition, buyers are entitled to a 20 per cent discount voucher from ZALORA, an online shopping fashion store and a Fitness Zone Voucher that entitles the holder to one-week free entry.

The event manager added that Wu Chun, the Managing Director of Fitness Zone is one of the main supporters of the event and is taking the opportunity to showcase his team alongside other talented individuals. Tickets are available at all The Coffee Bean Brunei outlets and at Fitness Zone.

Wu Chun said, “We need to create awareness that it is important to get good nutrition for good physical health and a healthy mind. If they want their kids to be healthy, parents should set a good example in what they are eating.

Hosts DJs Ashraff Rannil from Pelangi FM and DJ Livie from Kristal FM will help enliven the event.

“We all believe that children are the future, therefore we must care for them. It is our responsibility to create awareness and to educate the young on nutrition so that they have healthy minds and bodies that can allow them to excel in their educational pursuits for future success, for their families and Brunei,” said Siti Kaprawi.
