Night of Giving

Some 220 guests gathered at the Capella Singapore in Sentosa to raise funds for Magic Bus, a non-governmental organisation aimed at improving the lives of children from impoverished communities through mentorship and employability programmes.
Magic Bus founder Matthew Spacie inspired guests with stories of how the organisation has helped change the lives of children in India through education, and helped them find jobs.
Emcee Anita Kapoor and auctioneer Andy Martin volunteered their services for the evening, all in the name of charity.
Over a sumptuous Indian dinner, guests enjoyed dance performances and outbid one another in a live auction. Among the pieces up for grabs were a painting of Gandhi by Indonesian artist Syaiful A Rachman, a pair of earrings from Sara Taseer, and even a private performance by comedian Jonathan Atherton. There was also a silent auction where other pieces of art were up for bidding.
The evening ended on a high note with guests taking to the dance floor and partying the night away.
