Suria KLCC kicked off their Chinese New Year celebrations yesterday evening by inviting children from the House of Joy and Rumah Charis to a shopping spree at KLCC. They were each given RM150 worth of Ang Pow money to be spent on new clothes of their choice at Isetan departmental store. The children were accompanied by Suria KLCC management team who helped them with their shopping.
The children were treated to an eight drums performance and acrobatic lion dance and dinner at Spring Garden restaurant for an auspicious Yee Sang tossing and dim sum dinner. The House of Joy and Rumah Charis are non-profit charitable homes that shelter and care for underprivileged, abused, abandoned, neglected, poor and delinquent children, teenagers and senior citizens.
