Held in Putrajaya on 15th August 2015 was the MINI Pixelized Charity Event, organised by MINI Owners Club Malaysia (MOCM). The event was aimed to raise fund for the Trap Neuter Release Manage (TNRM) program run by the local animal rescue NGOs.
Proven to be a humane method for controlling the population of abandoned stray animals, TNRM works by neutering stray dogs and cats, thereafter releasing them back to their original habitat or sent to the animal shelters for adoption. Among the NGOs involved in TNRM are SPCA Selangor and TNRM Malaysia.
The MINI Pixelized Charity Event was held in conjunction with MOCM’s 10th year anniversary, and at the end of the event they successfully collected a total of RM 15,007.40 from various contributors.
As the name of the event suggested, the theme for the event is based on the movie Pixels that features four units of the F56 MINI Cooper S as the four ghosts to battle against the giant Pac Man. Unlike the movie, more than 140 MINIs turned up for the event, which makes it one of the biggest MINI gatherings in Malaysia.
“MINIacs” young and old congregated at the Putrajaya Marriott for a photo session, before proceeding with a convoy to the IOI City Mall for the main event, where representatives were on hand to spread the word about the TNRM program. Finishing off the event was a screening of the Pixels movie.
The event was supported by MINI Malaysia, Auto Bavaria MINI, IOI City Mall, Climax Pet Supplies Sdn Bhd, Pancake House International, Relish by Sweet Chat, Solar Time, Cars International, and Flash Wrap.
