Noah’s Ark Ipoh Animal Welfare presented an evening of fun, food, entertainment and surprises for their guests recently at Kinta Riverfront. The theme was Rock n Roll and guests arrived dressed in gear of that era. It started with opening numbers from the musical Grease performed by Mr Andrew Ong and Ms Kanna Jeyaratnam, a charismatic and multitalented duo. Besides dance performances by d Aritz and PSPA, the guests were serenaded over dinner by a four-piece ladies band called Summer Bee. They played the flute, cello, violin and keyboard. There were some surprise performances from the founder of NAI Dr Ranjit, the members of Soroptimist International Ipoh and Perak Women for Women. The event was executed with perfection by Ms Jeya Jeyaratnam, the organising chairperson.
The star was Harith Iskander, “the Godfather of comedy”, who had the 900 over guests in stitches with his jokes.
This event was organised by Noah’s Ark Ipoh Animal Welfare to raise funds for their non-profit registered organisation whose main aim is to reduce the stray population in Ipoh. They have a trap/neuter/adopt or release and manage programme.
The event highlighted the problem of strays in our community and created awareness to the public on responsible pet ownership. This was highlighted in a serious and moving speech by NAI president, Malika Ramiah Oates.
