Maserati by the sea


Maserati by the Sea, the first ever and largest outdoor charity event of the year will be held at the Penang Swimming Club on March 19 at the club’s sea front.

This event is jointly organized by Luxador Events and Penang Swimming Club with Naza Group as the main sponsor.

Two Italian luxury cars, courtesy of Naza Group will be transferred from their showroom in Kuala Lumpur to the Penang Swimming Club for display. They are the Maserati GranCabrio and Maserati Quattroporte Sport GTS.

The organisers aim to raise between RM80,000 and RM100, 000 and will donate 100 percent of the event’s proceeds to Partners Against Poverty, -a programme initiated by the Penang state government in December 2008 and supported by both the private sector and NGOs.

Partners Against Poverty aims to eradicate hardcore poverty in the state by giving out monetary aid to those earning RM500 and below a month. Penang is the first state in the country to attempt such an initiative. Currently, the 20 sen collected from the sale of plastic bags in the state helps fund the PAP programme. Recipients must first apply with the State Welfare Department to qualify.

Rozz Ritzmann and Andrew Netto, the stand-up comedian will co-host the evening. Other highlights are Zouk’s DJ Ken and Point Blanc. About 1,500 people are expected to attend this charity event.

Founder of Luxador Events, Jimmy Yeoh, has pledged to contribute 50 sen to PAP each time somebody clicks the “Like” button on the Luxador Events page.

Tickets are priced at RM88 inclusive of two drinks and snacks by Bella Marino Ristorante. For more information, please call, 017 4296133.
