For the first time event, the show is extended beyond the stage.
While Mediacorp celebrities collaborate with local talents to bring audiences a fund filled night of song, dance and music at the MES Theatre, viewers can now witness first-hand how every donation to the President's Star Charity makes a difference when local radio personalities join forces with volunteers from the 52 beneficiaries to bring love and hope to the less fortunate LIVE on-air.
Because 'It Takes All of Us' to make a difference, the President's Star Charity 2017 is a call to action for every man, woman and child living in Singapore, be it time, effort or money, everyone can do their part to make a positive change in the lives of those in need.
About the Charity
The President's Challenge is an annual community outreach and fundraising campaign for beneficiaries selected every year by the President's Office. It is a call to all Singaporeans in doing their part in building a more caring and inclusive society. Initiated in 2000 by former President S R Nathan, the Challenge represents the coming together of people from all walks of life, to help the less fortunate. In 2012, under the leadership of former President Tony Tan Keng Yam, the Challenge was expanded to go beyond fundraising by including volunteerism and social entrepreneurship. In 2018, President Halimah Yacob announced a $10 million fund (Empowering For Life Fund) which will empower vulnerable groups through skills upgrading, capacity-building and employment.
