Gangnam Style, Michael Jackson’s Moon Walk and the Conga.
These were the cool moves that Fr Michael Sitaram, parish priest of Church of St Vincent de Paul, and his team of dancers put on during a fundraising extravaganza recently.
The special performance wowed the 600 guests who packed the Orchid Country Club for Caritas Singapore’s Down Memory Lane charity dinner show on Nov 3.
The six-hour musical extravaganza helped raise $300,000 for Caritas Singapore. Fr Sitaram’s act alone raised about $8,800.
The event was the fifth in the Down Memory Lane series of charity dinner shows which began in 2000.
The recent event featured local stars from the 1960s to the 1980s and brought back fond memories of the songs and dances popular then.
Hosted by Hamish Brown, the show featured personalities such as Vernon Cornelius, Rahimah Rahim, Robert Fernando, Stephen Francis, Jive Talkin’ and John Molina.
Caritas Singapore chairman George Lim commented, “It is heartening to see so many people step forward to contribute so generously to the work of Caritas Singapore for the less fortunate.”
According to feedback from guests, many said they enjoyed the evening tremendously.
