CNY Dinner @ Miramar Hotel, Orient Ocean Restaurant
A Night of Abounding Laughter and Smiling Faces!
The first Chinese New Year “Lo Hei” dinner organized by the Promotional Products & Giftware Association (PPGA) for its members held at the Orient Ocean Restaurant (Miramar Hotel) on 7th Feb 2006 was a great success by all measures. With a whopping 74% turn-up rate made up of 80 participants from 34 companies, it was certainly a night punctuated with incessant fun and laughter.
During the dinner, members were treated to a sumptuous meal of auspicious dishes. On hand to entertain the members with witty comments & table games was Master of Ceremony, Mukesh, who certainly knew how to work the crowd and coaxed members to let their hair down. The table games gave members an opportunity to interact by working as a team to win prizes and thanks to the games, we now know which PPGA member has the honour of having the “oldest …”, “widest….” and “biggest….”! A big thank you is due for Axxel Marketing & LDM Marketing for kind sponsorship of table game prizes. A special thanks is also due for the President of PPGA, Mr Stanley Tan of LDM Marketing for his efforts in coordinating the table games.
That evening, 8 new members were also presented with their membership certificates and received a warm welcome into PPGA’s fold.
The Chinese New Year dinner would have been incomplete without the much awaited lucky-draw sessions. As there were 40 prizes to be won, 1 out of 2 members who attended the dinner walked away with a prize. The prizes ranged from a mini Hi-Fi set, DVD Player, Coffee Maker, Sandwich Maker, TOTO 10 million draw, cash prizes and many others.
The night came to an end at 10.30pm, with friendship fostered and renewed among members. It is truly a demonstration that PPGA is a genuinely open and friendly family for all.
The PPGA Chinese New Year “Lo Hei” dinner & prizes were heavily subsidized by the association as it believes in giving back to its members. The dinner committee would like to take this opportunity to thank the lucky draw prize sponsors, BizLink Premium Services, LDM Marketing & Patma Gifts Pte Ltd. Not forgetting BLS International & Synetics who have kindly sponsored the door gifts for all.
Last but not least, PPGA would like a say a big thank you for those members who have taken time off their busy schedules to join in the fun.
