The Guest of Honour of the night was Minister for Defence Dr Ng Eng Hen.

Additionally, a number of SPD clients also stepped up on stage to display their talents with awe-inspiring musical performances, as well as an archery showcase.

This year’s edition also saw a special segment, fronted by four celebrity chefs, Chefs Eric Teo, Heman Tan, Pung Lu Tin and Charlie Tham.

Held at NEX Shopping Mall, the four chefs each whipped up 200 sampling plates of food, which the public could buy by donating any amount to SPD.

Supported by local artistes Elvin Ng, Chen Han Wei, Romeo Tan, Felicia Chin and Seraph Sun, the four chefs managed to sell all 800 dishes in no time. Local artiste Marcus Chin even made a surprise appearance at the venue to support the charity, donating a hefty sum of S$5,000.

The sextet awed with their one-of-a-kind ‘mouth art’ performance. Their re-telling of the classic Journey To The West tale came with a surprise Singapore twist, as the evil Spider Demon turned out to be a misunderstood kanchiong spider.
