The Johor Bahru Tiong Hua Association’s cultural committee organised a ‘Fifth of May Charity Dinner and Dance’ event to promote healthy social activities, here, recently.
The event was attended by some 500 people who came to have a great time participating in the free-for-all Latin dancing session.
The event was spiced up with elegant looking invited performers doing the Latin dances throughout the evening including a pair of 9 year old who managed to hold the audience total focus in all their dance performances.
Chong Kim Huat, organising chairperson, told CJMY, every year, the committee will organise a community-cum-charity event in the month of May and this year, he said, the committee has decided to promote community dancing as a form of bonding besides raising fund for charitable organisation.
Later, he presented a cheque for RM5,000 to the Befrienders Society of Johor Bahru.
