Saatchi & Saatchi event supports Singapore’s Special Olympics Athlete Leadership Program.

Singapore - Staff and friends of Saatchi & Saatchi Singapore have raised more than $9,000 in support of Singapore’s Special Olympics Athlete Leadership Program (ALPs). The amount was raised during a fundraising event held at the agency’s Clarke Quay premises on 29 May, which encouraged participants to give a donation to participate in games and activities, and the opportunity to win a selection of great prizes like Scoot flights, next generation iPhone 6s and a Tokyobike.

The festive event, themed GivexGet, was attended by Suhairi bin Suhani, a Gold medallist Special Olympian in short track speed skating, who spoke briefly about the impact that ALPs have in developing leadership skills amongst aspiring Special Olympians.

“We’re glad to be able to contribute to a cause that develops leaders in Singapore’s sports people,” said Paul Roebuck, CEO of Saatchi & Saatchi Malaysia and Singapore. “Leadership skills are invaluable in all walks of life, and I’m proud that our staff, clients and friends have been generous with their time and money.”

Special Olympics Singapore is a non-profit organisation for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, dedicated to providing year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports. Its Athlete Leadership Programme (ALPs) recognises that individuals with intellectual disabilities have the potential and ability to develop leadership skills, and helps develop communication, social and leadership skills.

The main sponsors of GivexGet were Singapore Technologies Telemedia, Scoot, Tokyobike and Wanderlust Hotel.

Supporting contributors included Bitters & Love, Black Swan, Browhaus, Candid Signs, Chopsuey & PS Café, Coriander Leaf, DJ Owen S & Soul Fuel, Eat Train Love Personal Training, Fuse Audio, Hooters, Marriott Hotels & Resorts, Screening Room, Skinny Pizza, Spa Esprit, Starbucks, Strip, We Need A Hero, White Rabbit, Rubicon Wines, Tan @ Home, TLV Travel Ideas and W Hotel Group.
