The Corporate Social Responsibility initiative was a collaboration between Symphony Suites Hotel and Econsave Ampang Baru. Of course, this noteworthy event was more jubilant with the personal contribution of hotel Chief Executive Officer Mr Lee Chee Ming in the form of duit Raya, as well as goodie bags sponsored by the youngest daughter of Mr Nagappen.
