SINGAPORE - A calendar of events for Singapore's 50th birthday bash next year was announced on Tuesday, as the committee heading the celebrations gave an update on programmes planned for Singapore's golden jubilee.

Among the activities already underway are a big charity drive coinciding with the celebration, that has raised $90.72 million.

The Care & Share@SG50 movement raised the amount in four months, through 337 events held by 209 charities.

Donations to the initiative, which was officially launched last December, will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $250 million by the Government, until the end of this year.
