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.

2016年4月28日(星期四),晚上7时正,假新加坡博览中心(The Max Pavilion)举行“关怀与分享运动”答谢晚会。大会主宾为副总理兼经济及社会政策统筹部长尚达曼先生。其他3位出席活动的部长是财政部长王瑞杰先生,新加坡总理公署部长陈振声先生和社会及家庭发展部长陈川仁先生。

配合2015年我国庆祝独立50周年,公益金在2013年连同本地约240个志愿福利团体发动大规模的“关怀与分享运动”。运动获得政府以一元对一元的方式捐款支持,在这期间筹得1,300,000,000元。

昨晚我应邀和4000位受益人,捐赠者和志愿者参加答谢活动晚会。有数位实力派歌手参与演出。

我们没有被告知谁是表演者。叶丽仪的到来让大家都有些兴奋。叶丽仪演唱百听不厌的经典老歌 -上海滩(1980年), 赢得群众如雷般的掌声。哇! 69岁的她, 还是那么漂亮!

演唱者还有新加坡流行音乐女歌手蔡淳佳, 本地资深音乐人李迪文。
