BMCC Revels in the Spirit of Raya

The BMCC hosted a Hari Raya Open House last Wednesday, celebrating the closure of the Holy month of Ramadan. Over 90 members attended, with a robust mix of new and familiar faces enlivening the evening's networking with bustling energy. BMCC Chairman, Andrew Sill greeted all guests with an opening speech before Ms. Suzanne Mooney from The Lost Food Project (TLFP) delivered an eye-opening presentation on the prevalence of food wastage and what businesses can do to support social and environmental sustainability. 

The BMCC recently signed an MOU with TLFP in an effort to contribute towards eradicating hunger and reducing greenhouse gasses. In recognition of this partnership, commemorative mugs were handed out to all guests who were also encouraged to bring home surplus food in takeaway boxes brought by the TLFP team.

Students from the Sri KDU International School took the stage to perform a traditional Malay dance, including a Bunga Silat routine by one of their teachers. This being the first Raya Open House the BMCC  has hosted, we thank everyone for being a part of the events many successes, and we'll see you at the next one!
