MABA turns 60! Thank you to all our supporters!
MABA would like to thank everyone for attending our 60th Anniversary Dinner on 28th December at ICC Pudu.
It was with great honour to have hosted a total of 114 tables!
A special heartfelt thanks and gratitude to the Minister of Foreign Affairs Malaysia, Dato Saifuddin Abdullah and His Excellency Bai Tian, Ambassador of China to Malaysia for gracing our anniversary dinner with their presence. Dato’ Saifuddin, being dubbed the “Basketball Minister” gave an encouraging surprise to MABA by pledging RM50,000 to our basketball development fund!
This 60th anniverary dinner gave us the opportunity to gather all the past and present basketball community to celebrate our milestone. We are honoured to have mentioned and presented a souvenir to the retired contributors of the basketball scene at this dinner, and would like to take the opportunity to ensure the current active leaders that they are not forgotten for their continuous hard work and contribution to the community.
During the dinner, it was announced by the President of MABA that each affiliate would be given special two digit UP car plate (by random draw) to be sold as a fundraiser for their association. To date, UP plates for MABA has raised a total of RM2,000,000.
MABA would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year and a big THANK YOU for being part of this community.
