“MGM Family Carnival” Fosters Harmonious Family and Community
Passing on Chinese Traditional Culture through Fun Edutainment
The inauguration ceremony of the “MGM Family Carnival”.

As a responsible corporate citizen, MGM aspires to promote a harmonious and healthy community by catering for the needs of different groups in the society. Earlier, MGM organized its annual community event — “MGM Family Carnival”, for both of its team members and members of community. Through a series of educational interactive games and family-friendly workshops, the carnival aims to help strengthen family bonds and bring happiness to the community. With the theme of Chinese traditional culture, the event this year included an array of nostalgic games and folk culture experiences, which enabled the younger generation to learn more about their cultural root and strengthen their cultural confidence.


The launching ceremony of “MGM Family Carnival” took place on August 26 at the Ballroom of MGM COTAI. Participating guests of honor included: Cai Xiao Fei, Level III Investigator of Social Affairs Department of the Liaison Office of the Central People's Government in the Macao Special Administrative Region; Tang Yuk Wa, Deputy Director of the Social Welfare Bureau; Ng Sio Lai, President of the General Union of Neighbourhood Associations of Macau (UGAMM); Cheang Sau Meng, Vice President of Board of Directors of the Macau Tung Sin Tong Charitable Society (Tung Sin Tong); Un Oi Mo, Chief Supervisor of the Macau Federation of Trade Unions (FAOM); Loi Yok Man, Vice Chairwoman of the Women's General Association of Macau; Paul Pun Chi Ming, Secretary-General of Caritas Macau; Ip Kam Bo, Service Director of the Sheng Kung Hui Macau Social Services Coordination Office (Sheng Kung Hui); and Kenneth Feng, President and Executive Director of MGM China Holdings Limited; Wendy Yu, Executive Vice President of Human Resources of MGM, and Cristina Kuok, Senior Vice President of Arts & Culture of MGM.


Kenneth Feng, President and Executive Director of MGM China Holdings Limited, said, “Determined to promote and pass on Chinese traditional culture, MGM has organized this year’s event themed around this aspiration. Through offering a variety of game booths and family-friendly workshops, we hope to promote our culture and cultivate a sense of patriotism among our next generation, whilst having fun with their families. Looking forward, MGM will continue to work closely with the Macau government and other parties in helping to develop a happy, harmonious community for all. As we believe that harmonious family ties bring satisfaction to our team members, and as a result enhancing their performance at work, which would be beneficial to the long-term development of Macau’s society at large.”


The two-day event attracted approximately 1,500 participants in total. Apart from MGM team members, over 500 participants from families of six local associations — FAOM, UGAMM, Women's General Association, Caritas Macau, Tung Sin Tong and Sheng Kung Hui — all had fun at the event.


The “MGM Family Carnival” featured entertaining activities galore. There were six family-friendly workshops of various themes — including Traditional Folding Fan Painting Workshop, Culinary Workshop – Snow Skin Mooncake and Dumpling, Traditional Dough Art Workshop, Canvas Bag Painting Workshop and Solar Term Sachet Workshop, alongside some nostalgic folk games for children to experience the fun from the good old days. At the same time, MGM invited local performers and its Golden Lion team members to present a vivid array of traditional Chinese performances, such as Chinese dance, magic performance, martial art performance, diabolo and singing. There were also Chinese heritage themed game booths, photo booths and lucky draw.
