Care & Share Thank You Show “关怀与分享运动”答谢晚会
I was invited to the Care and Share "Thank You" event last night. 4 ministers graced the occasion.
Mr Tharman Shanmugaratnam, Deputy Prime Minister and Coordinating Minister for Economic and Social Policies
Mr Heng Swee Kiat, Minister for Finance
Mr Chan Chun Sing, Minister in the Prime Minister's Office
Mr Tan Chuan Jin, Minister for Social and Family Development
Several celebrities performed at this event attended by 4,000 beneficiaries, donors and volunteers. We were not informed who would be the performers.
So I was elated to see Hong Kong popular Cantopop singer Frances Yip. She performed her famous track - Shanghai Bund (1980), to the delighted screams and cheers of her fans. She looks so good at age 69. Wow.
The other celebrities were Dick Lee and Joi Chua.
In December 2013, the Care and Share Movement was started to mark the 50th anniversary of Singapore's independence in 2015.
Over a period of more than two years, with the Government matching dollar-for-dollar to donations received, a total of S$1.3 billion were distributed to more than 240 charities for the benefit of many.
