Misleading way to sell dinner tickets

Recently someone tried to sell me dinner tickets, obviously fund-raising for a NGO.

That is fine, except what is not fine is the NGO calls it Gala Night, complete with the picture of an Unduk Ngadau; giving the impression that it is the same as the official Gala Nite traditionally held at the Hongkod Koisaan on 29th May every year for Unduk Ngadau contestants from all over the State.

I think this is tantamount to misrepresentation. Why must they call it Gala Nite and put the picture of a Unduk Ngadau , as if to compete with the official one.

I also take note that the NGO’s Gala Nite was supposed to be held on 19th May at a hotel but postponed to 11th June which is way past the Kaamatan month and into the Fasting Month.

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that the postponement was probably due to lack of support or unsold tickets. May be the organisers should learn from this mistake. Next time don’t try to be a copycat.

Also, do they have the necessary permits since they are selling tickets to the public and collecting funds?

Perhaps the authorities should look into this.
