Zeus Communications Charity Dinner December 2010

Note: This article was meant to be shared with readers in January this year but with so many rescue stories that took priority on our blog, we had to hold this off till now.

On Saturday, 18 December 2010, Zeus Communications held our inaugural charity dinner at Keppel Club. The dinner was a smashing success and all proceeds go towards providing medical aid and food for street animals.

Friends and ardent supporters of Zeus had a ball of a time that evening. Besides the scrumptious 8-course Chinese dinner, everyone was treated to an array of performances by Mr Riem De Wolfe of The Blue Diamonds and Mr Vernon Cornelius of The Quests. Their time on stage left everyone tingling with nostalgia as they played music of the 70’s and all-time favourites by the heartthrob vocalist Cliff Richard. The very best music was played towards the end of the evening, with everyone reminiscing about the “good old days”. Coincidentally, last year marked the 40th anniversary of the Hit Song "Ramona" and everyone present at the dinner sung along with Mr Riem De Wolfe to the fantastic tune. Judging by everybody's enthusiasm during the performances, it is truly evident that music is the universal language of mankind.

We would like to thank and applaud everyone who helped make the success of this dinner possible.
