DJ Dongfang Billy raises money for BT Budding Artists Fund
TWO charities - The Business Times Budding Artists Fund (BT BAF) and The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund (STSPMF) - are benefiting from a series of "afternoon tea sessions" with Chinese radio DJ Dongfang Billy.
The first six sessions of his An Afternoon Tea Rhapsody with Billy are sold out and have raised a total of S$19,420.50 from ticket sales so far. Ten per cent of that amount - or about S$1,942 - will be shared equally between BT BAF and STSMPF.
BT BAF helps children from disadvantaged backgrounds receive arts training and education, while STSMPF funds are channelled to support 10,000 students from low-income families.
The first four sessions took place from Oct 3-6 at Taste Butchery & Seafood Factory Outlet at Holland Village. The other two will happen on Wednesday and Thursday this week.
The popular DJ Billy, a 56-year-old leukaemia survivor, plans to launch his first series of monthly cooking classes - starting from Nov 4 to 6 - that will also take place at Taste. He will share some his healthy recipes and how to best prepare them.
They will be accompanied by a variety of activities and the meals will be made with the produce from Taste. Guests can buy the necessary ingredients on site and recreate the dishes at home. Tickets are priced at S$30 nett per person and reservations can be made by calling +65 81861310.
