PETALING JAYA, 21 December 2020 – The festive season this year might be more subdued, but property developer Tropicana Corporation Berhad (“Tropicana”) did not let its spirit of caring and giving dim. Practising social distancing, Tropicana hosted a small yet festive celebration for 35 children from the Light House Welfare Home Association. Tropicana spreads joy and cheer by hosting lunch complemented by lively entertainment from Santa Claus and his dancers. On top of these, Tropicana also donated essential groceries for the home and new books, toys, and school bags for the children.
Dion Tan, Tropicana’s Group Managing Director underlined the importance of spreading Christmas cheers especially to those affected by the pandemic this year. More so to the underprivileged communities that are badly hit.
“If there is a time to show the true meaning of Christmas – the spirit of giving, caring, and spreading joy – it’s this year. For many years, we have championed our charity drive and the spirit of giving is always close to our hearts. This year is no exception, albeit a smaller group to adhere to the social distancing guidelines. Led by our charity arm, the Tropicana Foundation, our mission is to support the underprivileged community. We believe that even a small act has a big impact. Looking at the happy faces of the children, we are glad to host this event,” he said.
Present at the event to give away Christmas presents to the children were Dion Tan, accompanied by Jared Ethan Ang, Group Executive Director of Tropicana and Joanne Lee, Managing Director of Tropicana Marketing & Sales division.
The event was held at Tropicana Gardens Mall, the biggest neighbourhood mall nestled at the heart of Kota Damansara and flanked by the popular Tropicana Golf & Country Resort and Tropicana Indah Resort Homes.
