Singapore Red Cross – RHT Rajan Menon Foundation Charity Golf 2017 celebrates “Together for Humanity”

Singapore Red Cross (“SRC”) and RHT Rajan Menon Foundation (“Foundation”) celebrated “Together for Humanity” at the annual Singapore Red Cross – RHT Rajan Menon Foundation Charity Golf 2017. Associate Professor Ho Peng Kee, Patron of the Foundation, graced the event as the Guest-of-Honour.

The Foundation was honoured to be the title sponsor for this event whereby more than $118,000 was raised for Singapore Red Cross local humanitarian services TransportAid, FootAid, ElderAid, HoME+ and the Red Cross Home for the Disabled. This strongly resonates with the Foundation’s goal of offering assistance to disadvantaged groups.

Mr Tan Chong Huat, Chairman of the Foundation and Senior Partner of RHTLaw Taylor Wessing, said in his welcome address, “For many years, community development goals were philanthropic activities that were seen as separate from business objectives. But I think that is changing. What many of the organisations that are represented here today are realising is that competitive advantage can result from weaving social considerations into business strategy.” 

The charity golf event drew over 140 golfers and 190 participants in the charity golf dinner which included a charity auction, live performances and prize presentation.
