Tunku Dato’ Mu’tamir Tunku Tan Sri Mohamed from the Royal Household of Negeri Sembilan. It brought together more than six hundred industry leaders, innovators, entrepreneurs, artists, and philanthropists who witnessed a standout moment when McM Cares (a philanthropic programme under MCMWG) made a heartfelt RM300,000 donation to the National Stroke Association of Malaysia (NASAM).
This act of philanthropy not only demonstrated MCMWG’s generosity but also emphasised the significance of corporate social responsibility and the transformative impact organisations can achieve by aligning their success with community betterment.
