Socialite, Puan Sri Chelsia Cheng will be putting up a belly dance performance in aid of charity on February 8 2009 at 7.00 pm at the concourse of Pavilion Kuala Lumpur. Puan Sri Chelsia (pic, left) who has been learning belly dancing for almost two years will be dancing with her daughter Nathalie, belly dance instructor Sherlyn Koh and friend Toni Lim. Together they will be shimmying to a Chinese song named "Who Will Celebrate My Birthday With Me?" (Shui Lai Gen Wo Guo Sheng Ri?) which was composed, sung and recorded by Puan Sri Chelsia.
Born in Hong Kong where she was a popular singer and actress during the 1970s, Puan Sri Chelsia, who is the wife of magnate and CEO of The Lion Group Tan Sri William Cheng, said she hopes to turn the fundraising event into a rave party whereby those coming to attend the event can really have a good time. No seats will be provided so that guests can mingle freely and dance along to the music. There will also be a beatboxing performance. Popular TV actor from Hong Kong, Roger Kwok Chun On is expected to attend the function as well.
An auction of jade items will be held and lucky draw prizes will also be given away. Funds raised from this charity event will hopefully be used to build a new premises equipped with a swimming pool, sports facilities, physiotherapy room and music room for the Handicapped And Mentally Retarded Children Centre in the Klang Valley. Puan Sri Chelsia said the trustees have not identified a suitable location yet and would welcome the donation of a piece of land in the Klang Valley from some kind benefactors.
Tickets for the event can be obtained at the Parkson Department Store in Pavilion KL. Those who donate RM500 will receive a goodie bag with sponsored gifts and an invitation to the party, while the goodie bag can be had with a donation of RM200.
