In his speech Roy Castelino said, "Alfred Bennis formed ABC creation not to make money. At the time of formation, he had a goal. He intended to help the poor and needy. It is his 30th programme and each programme was organised for a cause. He never went behind publicity or making profit. On one end, he supported and provided a stage to the talents and on the other he became a Good Samaritan for the needy. I congratulate him for his 30th event. At the same time I wish the very best to Norbert Pereira for his musical journey."

Addressing the gathering, Nirmal D’Souza said, "We all do social service through associations and NGOs. But Alfred Bennis is doing social service as a one-man army. His dedication and commitment towards his mission is highly appreciated. As a single person, we all can help poor and needy. We all have the habit of wasting food. No one thinks about millions of people in the world struggling to have one square meal a day. So proper usage of food itself is a charity and it is our responsibility also. Alfred Bennis is an inspiration to all of us. I wish him the best for his upcoming events."

    We watched it online on Daiji. Hats off to Mr. Bennis for organizing such a pleasant nite. Norbert has great lyrical and musical talents and a superb voice. His compositions are excellent. Velita was simply awesome. We could enjoy jokes only 50% because the audio was muted. But it is Ok.
