PENAMPANG – The capacity crowd of 2,000 diners at the first-ever Parish Family Dinner and Concert organized by the Penampang Parish Finance and Property Committee in aid of the parish churches building fund was a runaway success.
The 200-table event, which was completely sold out, was held at the Sabah Cultural Centre here on Oct 21.
Parish priest Fr Wilfred Atin accorded the happy outcome to the organizing committee, even more so to the generous support of the people.
The theme chosen for the inaugural event was ‘Stand firm in the Lord’, which was deemed appropriate as it reflected the aspiration of the parish.
Songs, performances from various zones, community presentations, lucky draws and rendition of songs from special guests including priests to showcase their vocal talents provided an entertaining program for the evening.
The parish priest cherished the hope that the event could be organized annually so it could become a venue for many to get to know each other better and to share from other parts and zones within the parish, beside enjoying the evening with entertaining stage performances. – SOCCOM Penampang
