KUALA LUMPUR, Monday 17 October 2005 – It was “fun”-raising at its best at UCSI! With a comical celebrity host and a bunch of professional stand-up comedians to entertain the crowd, what charity event could be more delightful? 

It was further spiced up by a 10-member brass band, led by UCSI’s music student, Jonathan Willie. The band marched around the campus, playing, “O When The Saints” to attract fellow students to the fundraising event. “We certainly brought the whole house down,” joked Willie.Douglas Lim of “Kopitiam” fame hosted the two-hour event where students had great fun. Lim, in his witty self, also kept the crowd laughing with funny antics, clever catchphrases, and amusing interaction with members of the audience. 

The event, held to raise funds in aid of kidney dialysis patients, was riddled with fun-filled activities, including a pizza-eating competition, henna-drawing competition, quizzes, and an arm-wrestling contest. The ComeBackKings left the crowd in stitches with their hilarious magic act, the David Kapoorfield Illusion.

Organisers, second year mass communication students, Claudine T. Egbert and Chan Mei Yuan, said the event was a success. “It’s such a funny way to raise funds with these funny people who do nothing but make fun of everything,” said Claudine. 

Fans of the comedian, actor and musician took the opportunity to take photographs with their idol and get his autograph.

International Flavours and Cheerish Enterprise, which operate food and drinks stalls respectively on campus, sponsored snacks and buns for sale at the event. 

Later in the afternoon, students visited kidney dialysis center patients at Charis-NKF Dialysis Centre in Taman Billion, where all proceeds from sales were donated.
