Suria KLCC celebrates the ‘Purple Day’

Starting November this year, the Suria KLCC ‘Purple Day’ will be celebrated as an annual festival.

The objective of this event is to create awareness among the members of the public on autism among children.

Health deputy minister, Rosnah Haji Abdul Rashid Shirlin launched the charity event centre court of the shopping centre earlier in front of about 1,500 strong crowds.

The launch was also attended by Suria KLCC CEO, Andrew Brien and National Autistic Society of Malaysia (NASOM)chairman, Teh Beng Choon.

The guest of honour placed a single jigsaw piece against the ‘Purple Day’ backdrop in sign support. The jigsaw represents the disorder’s mystery and complexity, which is also international symbol of autism.

Guests and shoppers were later treated with a special performance by Ning Baizura and the NASOM Maestros, who also holds the current national record for being the first autistic choir in Malaysia.

Shoppers can make their way to the Centre Court and show their support by purchasing exclusive “Purple Day” t-shirts, fridge magnets fom November 11 – 14. They also stand a chance to win a mystery gift.

All of the proceeds will go to NASOM to help support and fund for the children’s needs.
