HARI PENYAYANG CHARITY CARNIVAL
Run by YSB with its 19th staging in the year 2017, the Hari Penyayang Charity Carnival is a two-day event which encourages people to “Have Fun While You Donate”. This unique event involves and brings together various NGOs, Government Departments, Government Agencies and the private sector to stage various activities for people of all ages and races. The proceeds from the activities along with donations from the general public and private sector are channelled not only to YSB but to the other participating NGOs as well. One of the activities that generates a lot of funds is the public auction, where various items including some from the personal collection of Almarhum Sultan Abdul Halim Mu’adzam Shah are auctioned off. One of the biggest carnivals in the country with an annual attendance of up to 50,000, each edition offers something new and different.
