The car wash is mainly organised by Roxy Pacific Holdings Limited, Grand Mercure Singapore Roxy and Marine Parade Citizens Consultative Committee and supported by Accor Asia Pacific and five of its Singapore hotels – Novotel Singapore Clarke Quay, Ibis Singapore on Bencoolen, Ibis Singapore on Novena, Sofitel So Singapore and The Singapore Resort and Spa Sentosa. Together with kind sponsors, the main goal would be to raise funds for the recently-launched Roxy Foundation that will be distributed to NGOs, VWO and schools.
The group will be organizing its 8th fund-raising car wash on Friday, 15 May 2015 from 10 am to 6 pm, with the aim of raising $100,000 for Roxy Foundation. Roxy Pacific Holdings Limited will contribute $60,000 for the event.
Mr Lim Biow Chuan, MP for Mountbatten SMC will grace this occasion as the Guest of Honor and will wash the car of the donor with the highest amount of $10,000, together with the Directors of Roxy Pacific Holdings Limited and General Managers of Accor Singapore Hotels.
The families will also be invited to the ‘Children Are Our Hope For the Future 2015’ dinner on Thursday, 28th May 2015 that is hosted at the Grand Mercure Singapore Roxy, with Emeritus Senior Minister Mr Goh Chok Tong as guest of honor.
In addition, up to 100 children from low income families living around the community will each receive $300 from the money raised in the form of vouchers. 15 students from Nanyang Polytechnic will also be receiving tuition fee grants of $1000 each that will go towards their tertiary education tuition fees.
“We are very proud to be organizing the car wash event for the 8th year running. It is great to engage with the community and giving back by raising funds for the underprivileged through the annual charity drive here at Grand Mercure Singapore Roxy.” said Mr Klaus Gottschalk, General Manager of Grand Mercure Singapore Roxy.
