From now till 20th Feb 2015, with every purchase of Kim Choo’s famous Crispy Pineapple Tarts, Kim Choo Kueh Chang will donate 10% of sales proceeds for the first 1000 bottles purchased.

As our community partner, Kim Choo Kueh Chang Pte Ltd is pledging 10% of the sales on their tarts between 20th Oct 2014 to 20th Feb 2015 to the AfA Singapore to help raise funds and awareness for our efforts in serving our local community.

AFA (Action for AIDS, Singapore) presents a special, free, by invitation only screening of ‘The Normal Heart’ courtesy of HBO. The event took place on 10 Sep 2014 at Golden Village, Great World City.
Academy Award® nominee Mark Ruffalo, Matt Bomer, Taylor Kitsch, Emmy® winner Jim Parsons and Academy Award® winner Julia Roberts star in THE NORMAL HEART. Directed by Emmy® winner Ryan Murphy and written by Academy Award® nominee Larry Kramer, adapting his groundbreaking Tony Award-winning play of the same name, the drama tells the story of the onset of the HIV-AIDS crisis in New York City in the early 1980s, taking an unflinching look at the nation’s sexual politics as gay activists and their allies in the medical community fight to expose the truth about the burgeoning epidemic to a city and nation in denial.
Ruffalo portrays Ned Weeks, who witnesses first-hand a mysterious disease that has begun to claim the lives of many in his gay community and starts to seek answers. Matt Bomer plays Felix Turner, a reporter who becomes Ned’s lover. Taylor Kitsch plays Bruce Niles, a closeted investment banker who becomes a prominent AIDS activist. Jim Parsons plays gay activist Tommy Boatwright, reprising his role from the 2011 Broadway revival. Roberts plays physician Dr. Emma Brookner, a survivor of childhood polio who treats several of the earliest victims of HIV-AIDS.
We are pleased to announce, AFA has been selected by SMU Business Society’s as their beneficiary, affectionately known as Bondue, Slightly Scarlet.
Slightly Scarlet is an annual fashion show / charity event which seeks to raise funds and increase awareness for local beneficiaries.
