They came, they sang and they conquered. The second edition of CEOs Croon for Kerala Kids (CCKK), Destination Kerala business magazine’s innovative networking event with a unique social responsibility theme, turned out to be an evening filled with music, fun, nostalgia and bonhomie. The event saw 15 CXOs belting out their favourite songs to bring cheer to the underprivileged children suffering from liver-related disorders.
“This is for the first time in my life that I am attending such an event,” said Kadakampally Surendran, Minister for Tourism, Cooperation and Devaswom, who was the chief guest of the programme. “It is commendable that Destination Kerala has organised CCKK in association with Sobha Limited and KIMS to support such a noble cause as promoting an NGO – KIMS Liver Foundation – which is working to provide world-class healthcare for children who are suffering from liver-related ailments,” he said.
“CCKK is the best example of how the power of music can be utilised for the well being of the society,” said Dr. Divya S Iyer IAS, Sub-Collector, Thiruvananthapuram who sang Pookkal…Panineer Pookkal… the romantic Malayalam duet, with N Ayyappan IAS (Retd.), CEO, VKL Group. But it was only a preview of the evening which saw songs like Sandhya Mayangum Neram…, Jadoo Teri Nazar…, Raja Raja Chozhan… enthralling the crowd.
