Petaling Jaya, 27 December 2011 – Malaysia’s largest optical retail chain, Focus Point Vision Care Group recently hosted a beauty pageant cum charity gala dinner in aid of needy children and disadvantaged youths at the Grand Lagoon Ballroom of Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa.
The event, organised by the leading retailer’s corporate social responsibility arm, the Caring Hearts Charity Foundation, saw a total of 55 international beauties vying for the glamorous Miss Tourism International subtitle, MissFocus Point Dazzling 2011.

Graced by Deputy Youth and Sports Minister, Yang Berhormat Senator Gan Ping Sieu, the charity gala which was aptly titled ‘Together we make a difference’ opened with a powerful rendition of the song, ‘Power of the Dream’, by the Miss Tourism International delegates.Energetic celebrity host, Chermaine Poo kept the crowd entertained as leggy beauties strutted down the catwalk and paraded in Focus Point sponsored T-shirts, traditional outfits and branded eyewear accompanied by equally charming children from the Ti-Ratana Welfare Society.

Contestants were judged on facial beauty and elegance, presentation of sunglasses and optical frames as well as overall stage presentation with sunglasses and frames. Among the judges of the pageant were celebrities Steve Yap, Zoee Tan, Dennis Lau, Zzen Zhang and Tiffany Leong. “This is the second time Focus Point is collaborating with D’Touch International, the organiser of Miss Tourism International, to present the subsidiary title, Miss Focus Point Dazzling. We thought it fitting to combine beauty and tourism with a fundraiser to benefit charities,” said Dato’ Liaw Choon Liang, President and CEO of Focus Point Holdings Berhad.

“We have had an eventful year where CSR is concerned. The Caring Hearts Foundation launched its inaugural World Sight Day campaign in October. Following that we organised the ‘Give A Gift of Sight’ mobile optical service visits to local schools to offer free eye screening as well as sponsored optical lenses and frames for the needy. We also collaborated with the National Blood Centre on a blood donation drive in November,” he added.

More than 500 guests attended the charity event which raised a total of RM60,000 in support of Yayasan Harapan Kanak-Kanak Malaysia, Persatuan Kebajikan Ti-Ratana and Pusat Penjagaan Kanak-Kanak Cacat Taman Megah. Datuk Danny Ooi, President and franchise holder of Miss Tourism International, was also present as were many members of the Malaysian Retailer-Chains Association, famous personalities, TV celebrities and members of the media.

A mock cheque was presented to the representative of each welfare home before the final result of the pageant was announced. The charity gala concluded with the crowning of Miss Costa Rica, Mariam Natasha Sibaja Bermudez as Miss Focus Point Dazzling 2011 but not before the crowd was suitably enraptured and entertained by the musical performances of celebrated Malaysian violinist, Dennis Lau and beat boxing guest artiste, Shawn Lee. Medical student, Mariam who was pleasantly surprised
by the win, was presented with a sash, trophy and Chopard sunglasses worth over RM2,000.
