A large crowd packed Artistry for the Fuze Night June event, as all present heard from Alvin Li (Givo), Denise Chow (Yellow Ribbon Project), Peter Draw and Avishek Das (Twitter). A newly-formed musical collaboration, LILO - our very own Rebekah Lin and Lin Jiahe provided relaxing entertainment for the evening.
We had a record turnout at our Fuze Night May event with over 120 people attending. Cramming into the cool and trendy Lepark space, the audience got to hear stories of collaborations making a difference from Wong Li-Lin, Bjorn Low (Edible Garden City), Carmen Low (Lepark), Jay Che (Circus in Motion) and Deryne Sim (Pink Dot SG). Tim de Cotta also performed original soulful pieces to entertain the crowd!
Fuze Night landed on 30 March and was a celebration of International Women's Day with three strong women sharing their experiences in the philanthropy space and how they are making the world a better place - Esther Nai from the Salesforce Foundation, Tessa Kwek from Children of Cambodia and Jane Gane from Young Women's Leadership Connection. Guest performances by Zsa Zsa Scorpion and Amanda Tee.
