10th Anniversary Gala Ball and CAS Charity Auction
On Saturday 10th March, Friends of MCM hosted their 10th Anniversary Gala Ball celebrating the first decade of Marlborough College Malaysia. Held in the Wykeham Hall, the space was transformed into a ballroom fit for such a glamorous occasion with a canopy, festoon lights, and dressed tables, elegantly gracing the hall.
The evening began outside where guests, donned in their best dress, enjoyed welcome drinks under the flashes of the photographers, all while being serenaded by the delightful Mr. Chew on the grand piano. When the guests adjourned to the Hall a sumptuous four-course meal was served, each course containing ingredients from the College’s own Barton Farm, while the Band Flo Rhythm eased everyone into the evening’s musical entertainment.
Following the delicious food and drinks and with conversation rife amongst guests, heads turned toward the CAS Charity Auction. With pieces donated from parents, pupils and local businesses, prizes included art, experiences, personal and household items for our guests to win, with all proceeds going to MCM’s charities. Over 30,000RM was raised at the auction due to the kind generosity of all who donated and bid in person or online, a truly excellent achievement.
As the night progressed, guests continued to enjoy the music of Flo Rhythm, taking to the dance floor to show off their moves, or staying at tables where conversation and laughter were contagious. Thanks go to the Friends of MCM, CAS pupils and all the staff involved in the creation of such a wonderful evening enjoyed by all.
