On 21 May 2016, the Football With A Heart (FWAH) charity tournament was held at the National Stadium. The event was organised by Singapore Pools, iShine Staff Volunteers and the Football Association of Singapore. It is an annual charity football tournament that raises money for various charities. DPA was honoured to be one of the selected beneficiaries this year and was invited to set up a booth at the tournament.
Later in the afternoon, DPA Board of Management members, Mr Nicholas Aw and Ms Tan Keng Ying, were invited to attend the Corporate Partners Reception where they met with Mr Tan Chuan-Jin, the Minister for Social and Family Development.
On 3 June 2016, DPA Board of Management members, Mr Arsalan Ali and Ms Lily Goh, attended the Celebratory Dinner at the Singapore Sports Hub where we received a generous donation of $65,000 and met with the President Dr Tony Tan Keng Yam. DPA would like to express our sincere gratitude to Singapore Pools, Football Association of Singapore and Sport Singapore for selecting DPA as one of the beneficiaries. DPA would also like to thank all donors of the football charity fundraiser, including the corporate partners. Their generous donation will go a long way in supporting DPA’s advocacy and public education initiatives.
