Concorde Hotel Singapore's catering sales director Kenneth Looi, 58, dressing up as Santa Claus to entertain the beneficiaries of The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund (STSPMF). The hotel organised a Christmas light-up and party to mark its 10th anniversary, with 150 children and their family members as its guests. A Christmas carnival - with games, cotton candy and a scavenger hunt - was held in the hotel's grand ballroom. For every room that was occupied on Oct 1, the hotel donated $10 to the STSPMF. Funds were also raised through a donation box placed in the hotel's Spices Cafe through October.
