Hitting the right notes to usher in the message of social responsibility, owner/CEOs of various firms donned the role of singers at the fourth edition of CCKK (CEOs Croon for Kerala Kids), a unique business networking event with a social responsibility theme, held in Thrissur on February 23. This edition of CCKK was aimed at raising awareness about Darsanaveedu, an inclusive education centre in Thrissur run by the Devamatha CMI Province providing education and accommodation to differently-abled children. The unique gathering – an elite audience of over 100 entrepreneurs, business associates and families – turned out to be an evening filled with music, fun, nostalgia and bonhomie.
The star singers of the evening were Rev. Fr. Walter Thelappilly CMI, Provincial, CMI Devamatha Province; Rev. Fr. Shaju Edamana CMI, Principal, Devamatha CMI Public School; and Rev. Dr. Paul Poovathingal CMI, Director, Chetana Sangeet Natya Academy. Other singers were K J Pius, Executive Director, KPL Oil Mills; Ambili Chakola, spouse of Babu Chakola, Owner, Chakola Trade; Dr. Alina Aakarsh, spouse of Aakarsh Paul, MD, Universal Chemicals; Adv. Sandhya Vargheese and the ‘F band’ (Abhini Saajan, Babu Chakola, Bindhya Sreejith, Anna Biju, Jeelu and Pinto); Bejoy Paul Chakkalamattath, Director, CKP Constructions; Shabu Aboobackar, MD, KRC Lodging; Dr. Geetha A P, Consultant, Mother Hospital; Madhu A P, Director, Hampshire Group; Madhu Narayanan, Managing Partner, Radhakrishna Group of Hotels; Sethuram Raju, MD, Mookambika Builders; M J Thomas, LIC; Uday Kumar V, Business Head, Destination Kerala; Rose Mary Sander, Daughter of K J Pius; and Saajan Francis, Teacher, CMI Public School Chalakkudy. Junior talents who sung at the event were Alit Ann Bejoy, Allan Paul Bejoy, Ann Rosa Sander and ‘Baby’ Ava Saajan.
Shobha Ltd. was the Presenting Partner of the event while BMW Platino Classic was the Powered By Partner. Joyalukkas was the Associate Partner, Darsanaveedu the CSR Partner, and Joys Palace Hotel the Hospitality Partner. Through CCKK, Destination Kerala advocates the need to go beyond cheque book charity and engage business leaders and donors in a heartening initiative that is sustainable as well.
