The recently concluded Kuching Chung Hua Middle Schools Grand Reunion Dinner was able to generate RM5.8 mil donation said the Star newspaper.

According to the paper, some 10,000 came to the massive event with the number 817 (referring to the Aug 17 date) playing a huge role in items prepared for the dinner.

Two stages were set up at the venue — a main one, which was affixed with five giant LED screens, to hold the musical performances and film presentations. Another was designed as a long runway, allowing performers to move among the crowd.

The grand dinner kicked off at 7PM with a choral presentation, followed by a Chinese orchestra and drums.
