Sian Chay Medical Institution Invites 1000 seniors to the “YESTERDAY ONCE MORE” Concert
Sian Chay Medical Institution will invite 1,000 senior residents of different communities to the “YESTERDAY ONCE MORE” concert while supporting the concert.
Chairman Toh Soon Huat said, “Charity and art combining well in love and empathy for benevolence to all. Music as an art is the most vibrant art that combines goodness and beauty, because it moves our hearts and senses and adds colour to life. Charity is the sunshine of human civilization. It is a powerful force that symbolizes the light of society.”
Chairman also said, “Art and charity are both indispensable in life, because music is borderless, and music and charity together will purify the soul and enrich life and bring touching moments to life. Many senior citizens can’t afford concert tickets because of financial issues. Therefore, Sian Chay Medical Institution hopes to give them a pleasant surprise by giving them free tickets, while letting them learn more about Sian Chay’s free TCM consultation services, promote good health and enjoy a good weekend!”！
