The Community Chest Awards is held every year to recognise the unwavering and invaluable support of our corporate donors. But more than just an awards ceremony, the Community Chest Awards also gives service users to showcase their skills and talent through collaborations or performances. At 2019's Community Chest Awards, trainess with APSN worked with local celebrity chefs to come up with delectable desserts served during the dinner.
This year, safe distancing meant that the Awards ceremony had to pivot to a hybrid version, with part of it held at the Istana and the rest on Zoom. Nevertheless, with technology, invited guests still enjoyed an interactive Awards ceremony together, where top donors received their awards remotely from President Halimah Yacob, were entertained by a rousing performance from musicians from the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts and toasted virtually with drinks from social enterprise Bettr Barista.
We may not have been able to celebrate with all of our generous donors and partners in person this year, but we are still deeply grateful for the continued support of Community Chest and its supported social service agencies, and spirit of community giving that had been displayed despite the current challenges.
