Singapore Dance Theatre (SDT) held its first ever Virtual Fundraiser last Friday (31 July) which saw over 200 patrons of the dance community coming together online to celebrate an evening of fun and dance in the new norm.
The first of its kind, SDT’s Virtual Fundraiser was a modern take on fundraising for a non-profit organisation.
Prior to the event, SDT’s donors received a delivery of champagne and chocolates to toast together.
The event was hosted by Hossan Leong and featured a music presentation by Singaporean violinist, Lynnette Seah.
It also featured segments of Swipe by Val Caniparoli and the World Premiere of Celebration, choreographed by Artistic Director, Janek Schergen.
A familiar face as Guest-of-Honour was newly appointed Minister for Sustainability and Environment, Grace Fu.
The event kicked off with a speech by the Chairperson of SDT, Laura Hwang. Mrs Hwang spoke about the challenges SDT has faced and how the company has adapted in the new norm.
Patron of SDT, Dr Tony Tan, also made a guest appearance with a video message for the online guests.
