OMG, Shakespeare & Cancer


OMG, Shakespeare and chemotherapy. These 3 things have nothing in common. 

But come 26th, 27th and 29th January 2011, these 3 things are all about fund raising for children who need financial assistance for the chemotherapy treatment.

The KDU Pre-U department is organising a charity play entitled O.M.G. which stands for Oh My Girl! which is a comedy musical play adaptated from Shakespeare's "The Taming of the Screw". This play is to benefit children with cancer who require chemotherapy treatment. Proudly a students' production, the play will be held at the newly renovated Auditorium at KDU University College Damansara Jaya Campus.

All profits go to the Children Cancer Fund or also known as Tabung Kanser Kanak-kanak which is under the guardian of Pusat Perubatan Universiti Malaya (PPUM) also known as Univeristy Malaya Medical Centre (MMUC). 

Do you know that a cancer stricken child need at least RM6000 for each cycle of chemotherapy. And we all know that cancer is not cured with one session of chemo. It takes more. The Children Cancer Fund offers financial assistance to financially disadvantaged children aged as young as 6 months to 17 year old. The child is innocent and cancer should not rob the child of his life or chance at life merely because he can't afford his surgery and chemotherapy treatments.

So I urge everyone to purchase at least a ticket (very affordable) from the 3 shows below:
Date: 26 Jan 2011 (Wednesday)
Time: 2pm
Price: RM15

Date: 27 Jan 2011 (Thursday)
Time: 7pm
Price: RM15

Date: 29 Jan 2011 (Saturday)
Time: 7pm
Price: RM100/200
Preview screenings on the 26th and 27th January is a smart casual event. The screening on the 29th January is a black tie event inclusive of a 3 course Italian dinner. tables are available at RM800 and RM1600 with 8 seats on each table.

For more information and tickets, you may call:
• Kelvin Hong +6016 7536 798
• Yi Lyn           +6017 4060 677

This is an awesome cause and for those planning their reunion dinner amongst friends and families on Saturday 29th January 2011, why not take a table for your reunion. You get a good time from the play, good dinner and most of all, its all for a good cause. These kids will appreciate and be very thankful for your kind assistance that will give them a chance in their fight against CANCER.

Have a look at the following links to get a better idea of the event and its good cause:
