A Night in Venice to Remember!

Passion Ball, Food from the Heart’s annual fundraising gala, made its glorious return after five years. Held on Saturday, April 27th, at The St Regis Singapore, the event transported over 300 guest attendees to A Night in Venice!


Firstly, we'd like to express our heartfelt thanks to the support of major sponsors and donors, which made the night possible:

Live Auction

A key highlight of Passion Ball has always been the live auction segment. This year was no different – our heartfelt thanks to generous contributions to a spectacular line-up of auction items:

The 11th Auction Item was the School Goodie Bag Pledge, when Auctioneer and Emcee came together to appeal to all guests to support generously. Almost $200,000 was raised to give underpriviledged children the food security and nourishment they need to thrive! 

But but not least, we are grateful towards these In-Kind Donors who contributed towards the evening's success:


While enjoying the special evening's fine company, delectable cuisine and captivating entertainment, guests also contributed generously to support Food from the Heart! Passion Ball raised $1.5 million, which will go towards supporting our food distribution programmes and operations.
