Supercar Charity Drive for Children’s Cancer Foundation
AOSC has partnered with Driving Passion to provide a supercar ride on 22nd February 2019.
Participants can look forward to a scenic drive along the Marina Bay area and Singapore’s iconic skyline before arriving in style at the Resorts World Sentosa. This unique opportunity costs $500* and participants are encouraged to pledge above this amount for a good cause.
One lucky participant will also enjoy an exclusive one-to-one supercar ride with the new Chief Dental Officer, Dr Chng Chai Kiat. The minimum bid for this experience begins at $2,000* and this once-in-a- lifetime opportunity would be awarded to the highest bidder.
Join us for this, all for a good cause. 100% of the nett proceeds would be donated to the Children’s Cancer Foundation.
*Your donation to CCF will be eligible for IRAS tax deduction of 2.5 times the donated amount. Please note that the tax deduction will be automatically included in your IRAS tax assessment. IRAS tax deduction is only applicable to Singapore residents who pay taxes.
About Children's Cancer Foundation
Children’s Cancer Foundation (CCF) is a non-profit organisation with a mission of improving the quality of life of children with cancer and their families and children impacted by cancer through enhancing their emotional, social and medical well-being.
Founded in 1992, CCF provides children with cancer and their families the much needed support in their battle against the life threatening illness. Over the years, CCF has helped close to 3,000 children and their families at different stages of the illness.
Armed with the vision of providing world-class resources and psychosocial services to children and their families impacted by childhood cancer, CCF employs professional caseworkers and counsellors. CCF adopts an integrated hospital-community-home service model, to offer a spectrum of critical services to our beneficiaries.
In the Hospitals - CCF helps children who are newly diagnosed with cancer and undergoing active treatment with their hospital experience. We offer emotional, financial and social support, with a focus on therapeutic play for the children and support activities for their caregivers. Our caseworkers and counsellors are based in KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital (KKH) and the National University Hospital (NUH) to work alongside our medical partners in the paediatric oncology wards.
In the Community - With more children surviving childhood cancer, CCF Community Social Work Team provides continual care to help enhance the quality of life for survivors. We help children return to school and support siblings of children with cancer. In collaboration with corporate partners, we offer psychosocial and recreational activities for the children and their families. We continue to monitor and support survivors who may have to cope with long- term side effects due to the treatment of cancer. The support of community partners are actively sought to provide continuing care to our beneficiaries.
In the Homes - When a child is at the end stage of his/her life, it is a tremendously challenging time for the dying child and the family members. Palliative and bereavement support are critical services provided by CCF to improve the quality of life of the affected families.
