Helping hands for the children, for the show


How do you organise an electrifying concert at a world-class venue without an out-of-the-world price tag? With the help of many sponsors and partners, if this year's ChildAid is anything to go by.

The eighth edition of the charity event will be staged at the Marina Bay Sands (MBS) Grand Theatre where Broadway blockbusters such as Wicked have played.

MBS, the offical venue partner for ChildAid this year and for the next two years, said ChildAid was a perfect fit with its corporate social responsibility focus on youth and education.

The annual event raises funds for two causes that help underprivileged children: The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund and The Business Times Budding Artists Fund, a programme under The Old Parliament House.
