SICC raises $1m for charity
The Singapore Island Country Club (SICC) brought out sunshine smiles from 22 beneficiaries yesterday. At the 47th SICC May Day Charity event, the club raised almost $1 million in line with its "Giving from the Heart" banner.
The tournament was suspended because of lightning stoppages but the dinner, attended by President Halimah Yacob as guest-of- honour, was a treat with a performance by children from the Ain Society that tugged at the heartstrings of the 250 diners at the Grand Ballroom.
Ain Society, a beneficiary, provides cancer patients with financial aid, counselling and workshops. - GODFREY ROBERT
