KUANTAN: With the presence of Hong Kong superstar Jackie Chan, an astounding RM3mil was raised from the auction of two Richard Mille watches and a painting during SM Chong Hwa’s fund-raising dinner and concert.

Each of the items went for RM1mil, putting the total collections at RM13.5mil.

Other large contributions came from president of the Associated Chinese Chambers of Commerce Tan Sri William Cheng, Hua Lian Group chairman Tan Sri Ta Kin Yan and the school’s board chairman Tan Sri Pheng Yin Huah.

Between them, they donated a total of RM1.5mil for two of Chan’s encore songs.

Chan received a thunderous welcome from the 10,000-strong crowd when he arrived at the event held at Stadium Darul Makmur last night.

Clad in a stylish black and white shirt, Chan effortlessly charmed the crowd with his humble demeanour and bright smile, as the crowd waved their hands wildly and gathered around the stage to be close to him.

After the auction, he thrilled the crowd with a rendition of Mandarin song titled Guo Jia (Nation) and also sang Zhen Xin Ying Xiong (True Heroes) as an encore, before the successful concert-cum-dinner ended about midnight.

Across the road, at the final stop of the Jelajah Janji Ditepati event, there was a stunning display of fireworks, timed coincidentally to also celebrate the funds raised from the auction and was greeted with wild applause from the crowd in the stadium.

Pheng earlier said he hoped the event would raise at least RM10mil to go towards the total RM30mil funds needed for the school’s construction.

Cheng and Pheng donated RM500,000 each for Chan to perform the first encore, while Ta forked out RM500,000 for the second song.

Also present were Chinese Ambassador to Malaysia Datuk Chai Xi and MCA leaders Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai, Datuk Seri Dr Ng Yen Yen and Datuk Dr Wee Ka Siong.

Jackie was personally invited to attend the fund-raising by Fang Tianxing President of the Federation of Chinese Associations of Malaysia. It was to raise funds for a new campus for the independent Chinese school (the schools teach classes in Mandarin). The schools have campuses all over Malaysia and Singapore. The event was organised in just 3 weeks and tickets were available to any one.

Jackie Chan is the Man! I'm glad he uses his fame to better those around him, it is great to see when a celebrity will take time out to support things like education.
