Sentosa Development Corporation (SDC) celebrated 50 years with key partners and guests at the Sentosa Golden Jubilee Dinner on September 2 at Siloso Beach, where Singapore’s president Halimah Yacob attended as guest-of-honour.
To commemorate this milestone, SDC gave back to the Singapore community by presenting her with a cheque of S$3,908,888.88 (US$2.78 million) for the President’s Challenge and Community Chest.
President Halimah said: “Sentosa holds a special place in Singaporeans’ memories, and it is heartening to see how Sentosa and SDC have grown alongside Singaporeans over the past 50 years. It is befitting that SDC has made giving back to the community an integral part of its Golden Jubilee celebrations.”
The funds were raised through the Sentosa Golden Jubilee Charity Golf held on August 27 and 28, and all proceeds will be channelled to benefitting agencies of President’s Challenge and more than 100 social service agencies and 200 critical programmes supported by Community Chest.
