Our annual charity outreach programme for children, aRWSome Kids’ Date, began as an initiative in 2008 to give less-privileged kids a day of pure joy and fun. We worked with charity agencies to organise these dates with children, youths and social workers from Singapore and Malaysia.
Voluntary welfare organisations that have benefited from aRWSome Kids’ Date include Mendaki, Sinda, Chinese Development Assistance Council (CDAC), Make-A-Wish Foundation, Children’s Cancer Foundation, Andrew and Grace Home, Children’s Aid Society, MINDS, Assisi Home & Hospice and Chen Su Lan Methodist Children’s Home.
The RWS-exclusive musical LightSeeker, at the Resorts World Theatre was the key highlight of our 7th run with more than 1,000 children under the care of the CDAC and Metta School.
LightSeeker’s international cast, and songs composed by Dick Lee captivated the young audience with spectacular pyrotechnics displays and acrobatic stunts.
