Aspectus PR saw the last milestone in our sponsorship of the Art Apart Fair in Singapore marked this week with a visit to the Halogen Foundation Singapore HQ by Aspectus Asia Pacific’s Regional Director Martin O’Connor. During the visit, the Foundation, which is focused on nurturing and developing young leaders in Singapore and is our nominated charity partner, received a cheque for just under S$5,000.
The visit really brought home just what a worthwhile recipient the foundation is: a vibrant, busy office, bustling with energy, commitment and fun – and massive dedication!
The Foundation is manned by a small number of full-time staff supported by interns. During the visit we were able to gain a full appreciation of the wide range of activities currently underway, as well as its future plans.
Aspectus feels truly honoured to have been a part of this project and we are delighted to know that our sponsorship is supporting such a worthwhile cause.
“We are a committed small group here at Halogen and like at any charity, resources are scarce,” said Sean Kong, CEO, Halogen Foundation Singapore. “To be the recipient of this donation means a great deal to us. We make every cent count here and this money will be used to great effect in our ongoing mission of developing and nurturing young leaders in Singapore. I would really like to thank Aspectus for sponsoring the event; they were not just a passive sponsor but got fully involved in the spirit and running of the event. In particular they structured their sponsorship to ensure that Halogen benefited as much as possible. We are all very grateful to them.”
