New Date & Time
AIWM X Marymount Centre Charity Bowl 2023
Thursday 7 September 2023 at 1:30 PM - 5 PM
@131 Rifle Range Road, Singapore 588406
Amidst the hustle of building our businesses and navigating the markets, it’s easy for us to forget the needy. One group of these are the 1,200 children in care/youth at risk in Singapore, 50% of whom are in institutionalised care.
Join hands with AIWM as we strive to raise both awareness and funds for these children.
This year, the AIWM Singapore partners with Marymount Centre* to organise a Charity Bowling Competition where teams from our firms (including family, friends and clients) can bowl alongside the children from the home!
Marymount Centre is an institution that reaches out to vulnerable women and children through three 24-hour residential homes for children under the Ahuva Good Shepherd umbrella and a crisis centre.
Funds raised would be used for therapeutic programs (counselling, play therapy, etc.) for the children as well as tuition fees.
AIWM Singapore aims to raise S$40,000 for this fundraising initiative. We have been actively supporting the less-privileged with our member firms over projects such as the SMU Bursary to support freshmen in financial need, #Feet2Foster to raise awareness for fostering in Singapore and the #CourageFund to support healthcare workers affected by Covid-19.
Through this fundraising initiative, besides raising funds, AIWM Singapore will be bringing 40 beneficiaries of Marymount Centre, aged 9 to 16, for a fun afternoon of bowling at the Temasek Club, located at 131 Rifle Range Road, Singapore 588406, on Thursday, 7th September 2023.

You can also form your own team of 4 (four) members (with your clients, colleagues, family and/or friends) and participate in this fundraising initiative.

We would also love the opportunity to come by your office to share about the children in care in Singapore if you think that would be helpful.
Recognising the importance of long-term relationships to these children, there will be concrete opportunities for continued engagement with the children if your team is keen to continue to be engaged.
We look forward to working together to make a positive impact on the beneficiaries of Marymount Centre.
