All encouraged to partake fundraising activities
Sands for Singapore Charity Festival, a three-day charity bonanza was held at the Event Plaza from 8 – 10 September. The festival helped raise more than S$4 million (approx. USD 2.86 million).
It was launched with a special edition of Spectra, Marina Bay Sands’ spectacular light and water show, ushering in an evening of showstopping performances by singer Benjamin Kheng and music duo Jack & Rai.
Beneficiaries from Care Corner Singapore, as well as mentees from Marina Bay Sands’ youth mentoring programme with Care Singapore were invited to enjoy the evening with their Team Member befrienders and mentors.
From a Giving Marketplace of local crafts to the sale of food and beverages by Marina Bay Sands’ signature restaurants, the public was encouraged to contribute to the community through a myriad of vibrant fundraising activities.
The Festival culminated in the physical edition of the annual Community Chest Heartstrings Walk on 10 September, where 3,300 participants joined in for a 4km evening Charity Fun Walk at the Marina Bay Waterfront Promenade.
