As part of Starhill Gallery Christmas’s Charity Drive, British mezzo-soprano Ms. Carly Paoli supported The Dignity for Children Foundation (Dignity), a learning centre with 1,000 poor and vulnerable children. Ms. Carly Paoli is a UNICEEF ambassador and was in town recently to perform at the Tourism and Culture Gala Night: Watch and Jewellery of the Year Awards Presentation which also marks the finale of the on-going A Journey Through Time IX.
I was there to witness the beautiful moment, when Ms.Carly Paoli did a special performance for the children from Dignity for Children Foundation.
After the incredible performance, Ms. Carly Paoli launched the Christmas Charity Drive by activating the Christmas ferris-wheel and followed by giving away gifts to the children from Dignity Foundation. The gifts are generously donated by Starhill Gallery and its esteemed tenants, namely Bedat & Co, Carrera y Carrera, Cecil Purnell, Cortina, Garrard & Co, Gubelin , Hermes and Mouawad.
Patrons of Starhill Gallery are invited to participate in the Christmas Charity Drive by picking wish-cards of the children from Dignity to purchase a gift for them. The wish cards can be found on the Christmas Tree located next to Starhill Gallery’s Concierge at Indulge Floor. All gifts are to be passed to Starhill Gallery’s Concierge by 18th December 2015 and will be delivered to the Foundation before Christmas to ensure the children ends the end the year on a high note.
The event ended with afternoon tea at Newens Tea House and I truly enjoyed the beautiful voices of the Christmas carollers while sipping my cuppa.
