Fun for Fund Fiesta 2015 Charity Event

Howdy everybody! Before I leave Singapore, I just wanted to share with you guys an event I hosted last weekend at Fun for Fund Fiesta 2015 organized by PERTAPIS welfare organisation.

Fund for Fund Fiesta 2015 was a wholesome carnival that people shouldn't have missed! For those who were around Angsana Green and dropped by, we thank you so much and hope you had fun at the carnival while you took shelter when it rained! There were so many people of different background attended the event and enjoyed themselves. Since it was a Saturday, it came to no surprise to see families flocking in buying the charity coupons in stacks not only to enjoy the delicious food like biryani, sausages and fried noodles but also enjoyed themselves at the games station, balloon castle and parrot show.

Things got more happening when AB Shaik, a renowned host that needs no further introduction made an appearance and entertained everyone in his segment. We were not short of entertainment as the event saw a series of cultural performances like silat, aikido, dikir barat, and ukelele ensemble. The much fanfare affair was not short of veteran celebrities who kept the audience occupied singing along to the famous singles from their glory days.

Fun for Fund Fiesta 2015 also took healthy living to a new level by not only having a walkathon hosted by PERTAPIS Women's, but also had participants that took part in zumba, offered complimentary health checks, teaching CPR by the Singapore Civil Defence Force and hosted an awareness talk about breast cancer by a survivor.

As many events I have hosted, this is the first time I am hosting a bid for charity. It was an amazing experience really and I would like to thank PERTAPIS for this wonderful opportunity to entertain and lead the bid!

The tents were also filled with with sponsors, donors, volunteers and supporters who made Fun for Fund Fiesta 2015 and PERTAPIS welfare homes a colourful one.

Our heartfelt thanks to our supporters!
