The 47th Singapore Island Country Club (SICC) May Day Charity event held on 1 May 2018 raised close to $1 million for 22 charity organisations. The proceeds from the event will go towards providing for children, the elderly, and the disabled with medical and financial assistance.

In the day, over 700 golfers hit the greens at four SICC golf courses as part of the charity drive. At the gala dinner that same evening, President of the Republic of Singapore, Madam Halimah Yacob graced the event as a guest of honour. She commended the club and sponsors for their generosity and hard work. The generous outpour of donations from corporate sponsors and donors contributed to the funds raised, attesting to this year’s theme of “Giving From the Heart”.
