To fete 10 meaningful years of fundraising to help ex-offenders re-integrate into mainstream society, the Yellow Ribbon Fund — chaired by Phillip Tan — threw a gala dinner at The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore hotel. A charity auction was held where one of the hottest items was a chess set carved out of stone by an inmate. Guest of Honour S Iswaran, second minister of Home Affairs and Trade & Industry, revealed in his speech that to date, nearly $5 million has been given out to about 30,000 beneficiaries. The dinner alone raised over half a million dollars.
