Golf Asia - - LUXE SCENE -

In cel­e­bra­tion of the 70th an­niver­sary of the Porsche brand and Porsche Club Sin­ga­pore's 30th an­niver­sary, Porsche held a spe­cial char­ity gala din­ner at the Shangri-la Ho­tel Sin­ga­pore for over 300 guests, in­clud­ing Porsche cus­tomers, Porsche Club Sin­ga­pore mem­bers, and mem­bers of the me­dia. Aligned with the global an­niver­sary theme of “Sportscar To­gether”, Porsche be­lieves that cus­tomers, fans, and em­ploy­ees are brought to­gether by their love for sports cars – the driv­ing force be­hind the suc­cess of the brand. Over seven decades, Porsche has been unit­ing sports car en­thu­si­asts, cus­tomers, and em­ploy­ees, fu­elled by valu­able and ex­cit­ing mo­ments that have been shared with oth­ers around the world.

Hen­rik Dreier, Gen­eral Man­ager – Sin­ga­pore, Porsche Asia Pa­cific said, “Tonight is a cel­e­bra­tion of 70 years of the Porsche brand. The first sports car to bear the Porsche name, the 356 ‘No. 1’ Road­ster, was reg­is­tered ex­actly 70 years ago to­day. Since then, Porsche has fur­ther de­vel­oped

into a world-leading and in­no­va­tive man­u­fac­turer of sports cars that com­bines tra­di­tion and in­no­va­tion, per­for­mance and ev­ery­day us­abil­ity, de­sign and func­tion­al­ity, as well as ex­clu­siv­ity and so­cial ac­cep­tance. Be it on the race track or on the road, in the pas­sen­ger seat or be­hind the wheel, ev­ery sin­gle one of our Porsche mod­els rep­re­sents a piece of mo­tor­ing his­tory and a state­ment for the fu­ture.”

In com­mem­o­ra­tion of the Porsche brand’s 70th an­niver­sary, Kar­sono Kwee, Ex­ec­u­tive Chair­man of Eurokars Group and founder of Stuttgart Auto, do­nated S$70,000. Both Porsche Asia Pa­cific and Stuttgart Auto also con­trib­uted S$70 for each Gala Din­ner ticket pur­chased, rais­ing an ad­di­tional sum of S$21,000. Through the event, Porsche Asia Pa­cific and Stuttgart Auto also held a char­ity auc­tion, which raised a to­tal of S$20,900. The event raised a to­tal of S$111,900, with all pro­ceeds do­nated to The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund.
