IT has been confirmed that Misbun Sidek will not be playing against LCW in the fund raising event held in Penang. They have rearranged the event with 4 uprising youngters from Penang to play against LCW on court(4 vs 1). LCW's childhood coach, Teh Peng Huat(?), will also attend the event.
LCW will also be displaying his Olympic silver medal, 2010 all england medal, 2010 commonwealth medal and Beijing Olympic torch for photo taking session. The charge of RM20/photo will all go to the charity. T-shirts will also be selling at RM30/piece. Jiang Pei Pei(?) and Biao Ming(?) will be the MCs of the event.
The stars who will co-perform in the KL-leg of the charity event are 湯小康、黃威爾、伍家輝、Stonebay、James Baum、張永佳、Jackson Chua、Simply2、Francissca Peter、Jojo Struys、Dennis Lau、JordanSam、凌家峻 and 林建輝。
And 張永佳、James Baum、Paparazzi Entertainment-億塘、小強 and Sisly will co-perform in the Penag leg of the charity event. The charity events were initiated by LCW with the support of his sponsors. The objective of the charity event is to raise RM 1 million as a donation to the victims of Japan tsunami. The fans in KL will have the priviledge to watch LCW and TH duking it out in the Bukit Kiara Champion Stadium(someone please confirm this?I am doing some direct translation here) from 5-6m. The charge of the ticket is RM10/entry.
P/S: Sorry, I don't know the English name of those artists. So I will leave it as it is.

LCW vs TH
Ladies and Gentlemen,
Let us give a round of applause to these two gentlemen who worked their socks off for the Japanese tsunami's victims.
We need more players like them who work for charity and promote badminton at the same time.
