SANDS FOR SINGAPORE FESTIVAL 2014

1 - 3 August 2014 at Marina Bay Sands

Sands for Singapore Festival, Marina Bay Sands’ large-scale charity event will run its second edition from 1 to 3 August 2014. The Festival is part of our corporate social responsibility programme – Sands for Singapore, which has objectives to benefit Singaporeans in impactful and meaningful ways.
 
With the goal to motivate others to join us in supporting charities and other local non-profit organisations, we present ourselves as a platform for fellow Singaporeans to contribute to the underprivileged in the community.
 
Marina Bay Sands will leverage the unique aspects of our property to raise funds for our designated charities and more. Join us in the giving back to Singapore by participating in the hive of activities that will happen around the property over the weekend.
