Between golfers having fun in their game and masked party-goers enjoying a costume party, Courts Asia raised $518,000 for charity. The two "fun raisers" helped Courts to make its biggest contribution in its 16 years in the Singapore philanthropy scene. In a ceremony at his residence yesterday evening, Mr Terry O'Connor, group chief executive officer of Courts Asia, presented the money to various beneficiaries. The Cerebral Palsy Alliance Singapore received the $155,000 raised at the charity golf event. The proceeds of the costume party were divided equally between The Red Pencil, a humanitarian organisation that provides art therapy to trauma victims, and the Down Syndrome Association (Singapore), with each receiving $181,500.
