Volunteers and Partners Appreciation Night 2015
Spirits were high at AMKFSC Community Services Ltd (AMKFSC)'s annual Volunteers and Partners Appreciation Night, held at Serangoon Community Club.
On January 16, 2015, AMKFSC held an appreciation dinner in tribute to the unwavering support of our volunteers and partners throughout the year. With a 240-strong crowd, this year’s appreciation dinner saw the largest volunteers and partners turnout yet.
The Fun Photo Booth proved to be a huge hit even before the start of the event. Lines of guests formed at the booth, striking poses with the various accessories available for a customised photograph souvenir.
The Appreciation Night officially kicked off with an opening address Chairman, Mr Cyril Chua, as he paid tribute to our volunteers and partners: “Throughout the years, AMKFSC managed to reach out to thousands of needy individuals and families. This is something that we could not have achieved without committed supporters such as yourselves. Each and every one of you present here today lives by the altruism to make a difference, a difference to the lives of the people around us”.
After a sumptuous buffet dinner, our guests were treated to a series of performances. With student leaders from Cedar Girls School wowing them with their elegant moves via a ballet, and our very own BASIC children getting the crowd going with an up-beat “Waka-Waka” dance, the guests were thoroughly entertained as they instinctively clapped along to the beat of the music.
It was then time to get everyone involved with a game of “Taboo”. Ruptures of laughter was heard across the hall as each tables tried ways and means to describe the very Singapore-flavoured words in their game cards.
Our Management Committee Members then gave out trophies of appreciation to our volunteers and partners for a year of commitment and support with AMKFSC in our provision towards our clients.
An exhilarating night was then brought to a close as the emcees invited Executive Director, Dr Vincent Ng to the stage.
In his closing speech, Dr Vincent Ng noted that the reason AMKFSC was able to reach out to more than 20,000 people in the past year was due to our volunteers and partners, acting as an arm of AMKFSC in the outreach efforts. He also expressed hope that they will continue to generously support AMKFSC in years to come.
