Charity Golf Challenge
Extraordinary People held our 2nd Charity Golf Challenge on 14 July 2023 at the Tanah Merah Country Club Tampines Course. Mr Desmond Tan, Minister of State, Prime Minister's Office, Deputy Secretary General, NTUC, was in attendance as Guest-of-Honour for the event.
Through our golfing guests' donations and purchases of golf flights, Extraordinary People met our target of $250,000. Once again, we extend our deepest gratitude to all our sporting guests, enabling us to continue running essential programmes for families with special needs.
Funds raised from the event will heavily subsidise programme costs, significantly reducing the financial burden on the low-income families we serve.
Extraordinary People has been steadfast in our mission to meaningfully integrate persons with special needs into society through our various programmes as follows:
- Integrated Programme (7 to 18 years old) – A comprehensive approach to improving a child's cognitive functionality. Therapists use a curated curriculum based on Art and Play. Our clients range from 7 to 18 years and above.
- Extraordinary Campus (18 years old and above) – A Post-18 campus equipping individuals with essential skills and meaningful activities in preparation for successful independent integration into society and gainful employment.
- Creative Lab (12 years old and above) – Art and music are powerful catalysts of expression. We utilise community-supported initiatives as a medium for artists with special needs to pursue art as a vocation and career. Creative Lab empowers individuals with special needs as contributing community members by creating and exhibiting their artwork.
Guests were also treated to an Appreciation Dinner to honour our prize winners and everyone who participated that day.
We look forward to 2024's golfing event. Details to come!
