A charitable touch was generously applied to the second edition of the bi-annual open-house event this year, Fun For All Under The Stars. Around 110 Singapore Turf Club (STC) staff spread the festive cheer to beneficiaries from its adopted charity, Thye Hua Kwan EIPIC Centre @ Woodlands by buying surprise gifts for the children, who received their presents gleaming with joy at the Singapore Racecourse.


Over 3,000 members of the public, comprising families visited the Singapore Racecourse this evening, busking in the carnival atmosphere of the Fun for All Under The Stars event which is a key element of STC’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) efforts.


Families were treated to an exclusive movie screening of Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted on the giant Astrovision screen. Children grew excited over meeting their favourite STC mascots, Racer and Clover, getting up close and having their pictures taken together. A myriad of carnival activities such as the colouring contest, balloon giveaways, balloon sculpting, snacks, caricatures, face-painting and game stalls, as well as taking pony rides for a worthy cause kept the momentum going strong through the evening. A total of $1,660 from the pony ride proceeds were donated to Singapore Turf Club’s adopted charity -Thye Hua Kwan EIPIC Centre @ Woodlands and would aid towards meeting the needs of its young beneficiaries.


The public also got to watch the horses in action on the tracks and came off with a deeper understanding about the Singapore Turf Club, after visiting the equine and Corporate Social Responsibility exhibition displays.
