The President's Beat - Fund Raising for Boon Lay Community Development & Welfare

30 January 2009

Mr Sim invited some of us to attend a Thanksgiving dinner at Raffles Institution.

The comperes for the event were Suzanne Ho and Dasmond Koh. The Guest of Honour was President S.R. Nathan.

Boon Lay Grassroots Organisations had initially targeted to achieve about $1.5 million in donation. At the end of the fundraising campaign, they had hit $2.68 million!

Boon Lay MP Ho Geok Choo turned emotional when talking about her Father (an ex-MP) and how she respected him a lot.

I happened to see Mrs Lim Lai Cheng, my TJC principal who was now Principal of RI.

Mr Sim drove us back in his car, and I thought his Winnie the Pooh seatbelt cover was cute.
