Another year, another installation of SACA's Appreciation Night!
This year, with the assistance of Conrad Centennial Singapore, we had a blast with our volunteers and invited guests. To amp up the fun factor, a photobooth with Superheroes theme and roving magician delighted guests prior to the dinner commencement.
The Guest of Honour for the night was none other than SACA's Patron, The Honourable the Chief Justice Sundaresh Menon.
With Emcee Aman at the helm, and his trusty DJ, the evening proved to be a memorable one filled with laughter. Emcee Aman wowed everyone with his magic and mind-reading tricks, receiving a standing ovation from everyone (including Chief Justice Menon!).
Of course, the night would not be complete without the annual awards presentation to long service and outstanding volunteers. The evening also ended on a special note, with a cheque presentation from the State Courts to SACA, presented by Presiding Judge See Kee Oon to Chief Justice Menon. As one of its adopted charities, SACA has received S$39,000 in donations from the State Courts. We are very grateful to their help in raising funds for the Association.
A gift was prepared for the State Courts in the form of a Batik painting done by a student of the Cerebral Palsy Alliance Singapore, keeping in line with SACA's efforts to support local community initiatives.
The night ended on a meaningful note as guests received door gifts from MINDS Bakers, from which proceeds would be channelled into providing allowance and training for the beneficiaries at MINDS.
The planning committee at SACA had an enjoyable time organising this year's dinner, and we look forward to yet another year of appreciating our volunteers.
