POST-EVENT UPDATE



The PetFinder.my 3rd Anniversary Charity Fair at Sunway Pyramid has arrived at a happy and satisfying closure after a long and exhausting weekend on April 23 & 24, 2011! The event successfully raised a total of RM20,000 in cash donations and sold over RM20,000 in charity merchandise, putting huge smiles on the faces of all participating NGOs, merchants and volunteers.

Thousands of people thronged the 1,300 square feet event area at Sunway Pyramid's Orange Wing, LG2 to catch 7 of Malaysia's leading animal welfare groups in action - PAWS, SPCA Selangor, HOPE, Save A Stray, Malaysian Dogs Deserve Better, Paws Mission and AnimalCare. Each NGO arrived well-prepared, armed with presentation boards, brochures and laptops to spread their messages, as well as attractive assortments of charity merchandise to raise further funds.

Merchants also generously participated to provide visitors with a wide array of art & craft items, donating their sales proceeds to charity. Furrenz.com, the event's co-organizer, proved to be the hottest merchant booth, with a strong flow of customers ordering elegantly-engraved pet tags. Other merchandise available include HeartBeat.my's personalized mugs, cushions and shirts; Da Vinci Creative Kid's magic keychains and recyclable bags; Henry Cats & Friend's animal mouse pads and pens; Petster Magazine's T-shirts; Cake Pantry's animal-shaped cupcakes and cookies; and BeadsCraftz's fridge magnets.

The adorable animal mascots became the center of attraction, padding around the area appealing for donations with their heart-melting eyes. MDDB's mascot wearing two strap-on donation cylinders and HOPE's mascot spotting a miniature Christmas hat on its head were irresistible, perpetually drawing in donors and photographers alike. PetFinder.my surprised the crowd with the largest animal mascot - a volunteer dressed up in a cute Husky dog suit.

The event was complemented by an exciting line-up of performances - Kristal Ho and Clement Chan's inspiring duets; Rubini and Pet N You's eye-opening pet obedience demonstrations; Fawn and Groovy's brilliantly-choreographed doggy dance; Angela An's sweet singing; Dr.Loh's informative animal welfare talk and doggy parade; Caught Red-Handed's powerful band gig; Living Arts Dance Studio's jazz and hip-hop dances energetically performed by kids; Mr.Loh's skillful American tap dancing; and of course, PetFinder.my's joyous birthday celebration with a delightfully-crafted cake courtesy of Cake Pantry. Besides arranging the majority of performances, Save A Stray, the event's co-organizer also dazzled up the charity fair with colorful clowns and helium balloons, in co-operation with Sunway College students. Further spicing up the event was Andrew, the funny and charismatic emcee that expertly coordinated the activities and reigned in large crowds.

PetFinder.my's charity fair reached a successful closure at 9pm on Sunday, when the collected cash donations were summed up and distributed to the deserving NGOs. A tiring but extremely fruitful weekend where the event's objectives were successfully accomplished - raising funds and awareness for Malaysia's homeless animals.

PetFinder.my would like to sincerely thank everyone for their hard work and effort in making this event a success, especially the co-organizers, NGOs, merchants, sponsors, volunteers, performers and donors. Below are a list of selfless and dedicated PetFinder.my volunteers that have expended a huge amount of saliva and legwork to appeal for funds or helped with various logistics during the event, in alphabetical order: Alice Lim, Annaliea, Andrew Wong, Andy Low, Bell Xun, Christine Chong, Chow, Don Thneah, Ewilly, Han Sheng, Hiba, Jia Yuh, Joyce Daniel, Joanne, June, Jun Hao, Kathlin Lee, KC Lim, Kevin Khoo, Khairul, Luna, Mun, Shan Hui, Siew Leng, Siew Yen, Sze Kaye, Yee Leng and Yie Shiang.

Generous sponsors for the Charity Fair are: Sunway Pyramid, i-Hotel, Henry Cats & Friends, U R My Pet House, PetsMore, Casa, PetMySite.com, Mr.Tatzai & Ms.Sasa The Charitable Pugs, Schneizen The Generous Schnauzer and HeadShot.

Congratulations! Those numbers are fantastic, and how to even calculate how much people's awareness of animal welfare was heightened??

I also read Chan Kah Yein's account of the weekend on her blog, and it does sound great but also exhausting. Rest up, everyone!
