The Pink Ribbon Charity Golf 2016 was held at the New Course, Island Location (Thomson) of Singapore Island Country Club on 18 August. It was a sunny day with excellent weather throughout, and the golfers enjoyed their afternoon on the green.
The Singaporean weather was blisteringly hot as usual, but the strategically placed ice cream tent provided everyone on the passing buggies with much needed relief and a sweet, cooling treat!
Aside from the many avid golfers who lent their generous support to our fundraising effort, the event was also graced by the presence of VIPs such as Mrs Goh Chok Tong, our patron Mrs Yu-Foo Yee Shoon, Community Chest Chairman Mr Phillip Tan, Health Promotion Board CEO Mr Zee Yoong Kang, and a host of other esteemed guests representing our sponsors and long-time supporters.
We are most thankful for the presence of our Guest of Honour, Mr Ong Ye Kung, Acting Minister for Education and Senior Minister of State for Defence at our post-game Gala Dinner. Thank you minister!
The dinner featured an engaging performance by Ms Jaclyn Toh, where she captivated the guests with her beautiful voice, delivering such popular numbers as Theresa Teng’s 月亮代表我的心(The Moon Represents my Heart) and Frances Yip’s 上海滩 (Sheung Hoi Tan).
There was also the charity auction of the night where wine, paintings, and watches were up for bidding. In total, the event (including auction) raised S$430,000, which will go towards funding the operations of BCF and our programmes aimed at eradicating breast cancer as a life threatening disease, and rendering support to survivors of, and persons diagnosed with breast cancer in their journeys to battle the disease.
Last but not least, we are grateful for the support from the Charity Golf Organising Committee, our members, and volunteers who participated in this event and helped make it a success. Thank you!
