A Mewsic Fundraiser for Lee Ah Mooi Old Age Home
We’re gathering some of Singapore’s most
talented musicians to raise awareness and donations for the Lee Ah Mooi Old Age
Home, a 55-year old institution that looks after retired samsui woman and Amahs
Many of these women, who came in droves from
the 1930s onwards, helped lay the foundations for the Singapore we know today.
While buildings and even MRT stations were constructed by the samsui woman,
the Amahs were greatly involved in providing domestic help for a generation of
both pre and post-war babies. The lineup for this fundraiser includes 53A, LEW,
Joie Tan, Xueyi, Sammybubbas who will be purrforming alongside 10 residents
cats at The Company of Cats.
Tickets for the event are priced at $15 and
includes a 2-hour stay in the cat room, the artist will also be collecting
donations on-site for the Lee Ah Mooi Old Age Home, so come on by with an open
heart (maybe an open wallet) and have a great time while you’re at it!
