Galaxy Macau Celebrated its First Anniversary with Community Charity Screening Raised Funds for ORBIS Macau

May 21, 2012 – In alignment with Galaxy Entertainment Group (“GEG”)’s effort to promote art and culture within the community, Galaxy Macau™ hosted the “Golden Night at the Opera - Charity Screening in 3D” at UA Galaxy Cinemas last Saturday to celebrate its first anniversary. Featuring the famous Western opera “Carmen in 3D”, the charity screening received great support from over 200 invited guests including socialites and representatives from local associations; and all proceeds will go to ORBIS Macau for its sight- saving mission.

Held at the Grand Theatre of UA Galaxy Cinemas in the afternoon of 19th May, the charity screening was graced by invited guests including Ms. Vivian Lo, Director of Development of ORBIS Macau and Mr. Eric Sautedé, Vice-President of the Board of Committee of Alliance Française de Macao. Joining the guests to support the charity event were the senior members of GEG. Refreshed by a cocktail reception as they arrived at the event, the guests entered the theatre with anticipation to enjoy the classic romance which is first ever filmed in 3D. Students from Alliance Française de Macao were also invited to the charity screening so that they could enjoy this French drama film.

In addition to celebrating the first anniversary of Galaxy Macau, the charity screening also had a special purpose to raise funds for ORBIS Macau. The event received overwhelming response from the warm-hearted guests who made donations by purchasing the 3D glasses at a special price and filling the donation boxes placed at the theatre. Hoping to provide care for people with eye diseases, Ms. Vony, who joined the guests to participate in the charity screening, said, “I am very happy to be invited to this meaningful event. Not only did it introduce such an impressive Western opera to Macau citizens, but it also provided us an opportunity to contribute to charity.”

GEG has been supporting ORBIS Macau’s sight-saving work through organizing a variety of activities, which includes promoting the importance of eye care among its team members. As all proceeds from the charity screening will go to ORBIS Macau for blindness prevention and treatment, Ms. Vivian Lo from the association was gratified that the event had received great support from the participants. “The charity screening has certainly helped to bring more attention to people with eye diseases, which can ensure that more patients will be able to receive the care they need,” she said.
