Friends of MCM 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. The Wykeham Hall was transformed into a ballroom, where a delicious four-course meal was served, while the band Flo Rhythm eased everyone into the evening’s musical entertainment. 

During the evening the CAS Charity auction raised over RM31,000, a truly excellent achievement.  A special thanks to the generous gift and ‘experience’ donors who made the auction possible and also  to our wonderful auction team, Heather Stevens, Sakura from Friends of MCM, the Lower Sixth CAS auction team, Dasha, Bryan, Yi Xuan and Tina and the auctioneer, Mr Jim Cassidy.
