Our bumper December 2019 – January 2020 MANZA magazine has just hit the stands! It’s been a very busy couple of months at MANZA with our successful Melbourne Cup Lunch, MANZA Christmas Bazaar and several other functions raising much needed funds for our worthwhile charities and we were all able to enjoy the events at the same time – a double bonus!
Once again thank you to our Editor Georgina and all the other hard working volunteers who make all this possible! Please click below to read and enjoy the latest MANZA Magazine!
What a busy weekend we have just had at MANZA. Our Christmas Charity Bazaar was held at the Bukit Kiara Equestrian Centre on Sunday and we had a dedicated team of MANZA volunteers working hard on decorating the ballroom and terrace for six hours on Saturday. It was lovely getting into the spirit of Christmas and putting up our first Christmas tree of the year!
Sunday morning our valued vendors arrived early to start setting up their glittering stalls. We were extremely lucky this year to have students from Sunway College as volunteers and these young men and women worked so hard all day, always with a smile on their faces and willing to do whatever was asked.
By the time the bazaar opened at 11.00am the Equestrian Club was transformed. There were so many fascinating stalls with a wide variety of beautiful wares for sale.
MANZA’s Trash and Treasure was a favourite of the day and we had a run on donated leather shoes for men! Ladies scooped up many of the beautiful clothes that had been donated and many kitchen appliances went home to happy new owners.
Our always popular cake stall sold out well before the bazaar closed and our Tombola and Book Stall did incredibly well. And whilst the ladies shopped, their husbands were able to enjoy a few beverages overlooking the beautiful pool at the Equestrian Club, whilst their children enjoyed our kids’ activities including face painting, crafts, a bouncy castle and sumo wrestling.
Our Craft Ladies meet up every Friday at MANZA and create works of art. Sales at their stall were excellent – such a contribution to our Charity Funds. Thank you ladies!
All these profits go to MANZA’s charities, so thank you so much to all our stall holders, everyone who donated cakes, clothes, books and their time as well as those who took time out of their valuable weekend to come and have fun on the day. A special thank you to our Charities Co-Ordinator Martha, who as always worked tirelessly and quietly in the background for several months to put everything together.
And finally a heartfelt thank you to our sponsors Asian Tigers and AGS whose sponsorship is so important to the success of MANZA.

so much to the Pink Ribbon Foundation for their very informative presentation
at our Pink October Coffee Morning in aid of Breast Cancer, at MANZA House this
all know we need Vitamin D, we were educated today on the importance of
ensuring we have sufficient levels of this incredibly important Vitamin. It can affect the outcome of many diseases
and today we learnt of its importance in helping to protect us from breast
cancer and slowing down cancer in women already diagnosed with the disease, so
make sure you get your 15 or 20 minutes of sunshine each day!
We also had
the privilege of listening to Myrna, a Breast Cancer Survivor, who shared the
story of her journey fighting the disease with the support of friends, family
and the Pink Ribbon Foundation. Thank
you, Myrna, we were very moved. You can
read her story on Page 22 of our MANZA October magazine which is available on
our website at www.manza.org.
like to thank our sponsors Asian Tigers today for their generous sponsorship of
our raffle prizes and we were able to raise over RM550 for the Pink Ribbon Foundation.
Thank you once
again to everyone who gave so generously to this great cause.
