Merdeka Gala Dinner 2019
The Merdeka Gala Dinner of the Australian Malaysian Business Council (SA) is an annual charity fundraising event which brings together over 250 participants ranging from corporate representatives, government representatives from Malaysia and Australia, institutional leaders, to prominent entrepreneurs across South Australia.
The Merdeka Gala Dinner 2019 was held on 31 August 2019 at the Adelaide Convention Center to raise funds for the Women’s and Children’s Hospital (WCH) Foundation Beach House.
Each year during AMBC’s annual gala dinner dance, we raise funds for a deserving cause. This year AMBC will dedicate its annual dinner fundraising efforts towards raising funds for the Women’s and Children’s Hospital Foundation, who leads and inspires the community as an advocate for the exceptional services of the Women’s and Children’s Hospital, as the principal fundraising and community engagement charity for the Hospital, and whose aim is to ensure that mums, children and their families have access to the very best medical care, facilities and support services at a time when they need it the most.
Since the annual Merdeka Gala Dinner is also a significant event to commemorate and celebrate the Malaysian Independence Day, it features the Merdeka Awards to outstanding final year Malaysian students completing university studies in Adelaide.
