Feasts raise funds for charity

The World Gourmet Summit Charity Dinner raised funds this year for beneficiaries of The Community Chest through sale of tables with more than 340 seats priced at $1,000 each.

There was also a charity auction of items, including a necklace valued at $15,000, at the W Hotel on Sunday.

Minister for the Environment and Water Resources Vivian Balakrishnan and former president of Singapore S R Nathan graced the occasion. The funds raised will be matched by the Government.

Meanwhile, another charity dinner organised by The Migrant Workers’ Centre raised more than $175,000 for its Migrant Workers’ Assistance Fund through donations and sales received for the dinner tables.
