RICE BALL 2020: MASKquerade

3 October 2020, 7pm

The 19th Annual WILD RICE Charity Gala
A Virtual Fundraising Event in Support of WILD RICE

The WILD RICE Ball, one of the most anticipated events on Singapore’s social calendar, will be going virtual this year due to COVID-19. Fun, engaging and fabulous, it will be streamed ‘live’ from our home in Funan into the comfort and safety of yours.

With the global pandemic compelling the closure of our theatre complex since March and the cancellation of all our shows, this is WILD RICE’s most critical fundraiser yet.

Please kindly consider joining us by hosting a table, throwing a party at home or making a donation. Your support will provide a crucial lifeline for the company in the challenging days ahead, and help secure the livelihoods of all who work with us. Thank you very much!

A Gourmet Meal At Home
Exquisite meals by Singapore’s most exciting chefs – from the likes of Michelin Star restaurants Odette and Braci, The Ritz-Carlton, 3 Embers and Opio Modern Kitchen by Blue Lotus – will be delivered right to your doorstep.
