The mall’s celebration this year, themed Summit Light Up With Love was launched recently, giving shoppers a glimpse of the line-up of events taking place throughout December.
Launching the event was Kelana Jaya MCA chairman Ong Chong Swen and DTZ Nawawi Tie Leung Property Consultants director Adzman Shah Mohd Ariffin.
Special guests present were members from the Beautiful Gate Disabled Centre, orphans and children of single parents from the Compassion Home in USJ 1 and needy children from Subang Jaya.
Ong said the members from Beautiful Gate were role models in continuing to live a fulfilled life despite their disability.
Adzman Shah added that while the mall might have been a little frugal in decor this year, however, all efforts were still made to ensure that the festive atmosphere was still present.
“As the new management of The Summit Subang USJ, we are confident of bringing it to greater heights,” he said.
Following the Christmas tree lighting to mark the launch, the Beautiful Gate members performed several dance and singing performances on their wheelchairs, while the Compassion Home children touched the crowd with their soulful rendition of Malay, English, and Chinese songs.
Brothers Isaac Sathiya, 15. and Samuel Kuvinder, 13, from Compassion Home, said they had always enjoyed Christmas and to be part of the occasion at the mall made their day.
Isaac was brought into the home when he was in Year Four and Samuel when he was Year Two.
Both said they enjoyed schooling very much and that they did not have any special Christmas wish.
Meanwhile, a host of activities like Christmas bazaars, Christmas musical singing and dance performances, appearances by Santa Claus, various competitions, as well as mascots and cartoon characters of Ronald McDonald, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, and Fantastic Four are set to add to the merriment of the festival.
Under the new management, the mall would see a change in new tenants and also upgrading in different phases
