The Malaysian AIDS Foundation (MAF) unveils the latest edition of its biennial fundraiser, the Red Ribbon Gala 2008. Themed ‘Red Carpet Glamour’, the event will bring together Kuala Lumpur’s corporate giants, socialites and award-winning media in an evening of glamour and philanthropy on Saturday, October 25 2008.
Graced by the presence of our royal guests, Duli Yang Maha Mulia Seri Paduka Baginda Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Wathiqu Billah Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin Ibni Al-Marhum Sultan Mahmud Al-Muktafi Billah Shah and Seri Paduka Baginda Raja Permaisuri Agong Tuanku Nur Zahirah, the Gala will feature Hollywood’s favourite red carpet designer, Elie Saab, with his Autumn/Winter 2008-2009 Haute Couture Collection directly from Paris.
One of the main highlights of the event is the announcement of the winners of the Mercedes-Benz Malaysia Red Ribbon Media Awards in recognition of journalistic excellence in HIV/AIDS reporting, and Dr. Siti Hasmah Award which recognises outstanding contributions of an individual or organisation which has done exemplary work to support People Living with HIV/AIDS in Malaysia.
The MAF hopes to raise some RM2 million from this year’s Gala. This will be raised through the sales of tables at RM50,000 and RM35,000 as well as through an auction.
