LIFESTYLE property developer Eastern & Oriental Berhad (E&O) will be involved in the Chinese New Year celebrations in Penang for the 11th consecutive year.
This time, the company is the main sponsor with a RM200,000 contribution to the state government’s Penang CNY Lanterns 2017 event to be held at Dewan Sri Pinang.
A spectacular display of lanterns in various thematic designs will be up for public viewing from Jan 26 to Feb 26. Admission is free.
E&O group corporate strategy director Lyn Chai said it was an honour for them to continue the long-standing commitment in supporting socio-cultural festivals in the state.
“E&O is extremely honoured to be part of this meaningful event which showcases the rich culture and heritage of George Town.
“It underscores our deep connection with the past, present and future of Penang — as custodian of the over a century-old heritage landmark E&O Hotel, to the development of the award-winning masterplanned Seri Tanjung Pinang seafront community, as well as looking ahead to Seri Tanjung Pinang Phase 2,” she said during a mock cheque presentation ceremony attended by Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng at the hotel recently.
E&O group hospitality and lifestyle director Michael Saxon added: “Penang makes a great melting pot for modernity and tradition as it sustains the rich values of heritage with community-centric activities, like this forthcoming lantern event.”
Also present was Tanjong MP Ng Wei Aik who is also the event organising chairman.
