Mr Desmond Lee

Minister for Social and Family Development and Second Minister for National Development

Themed ‘Be A Star. Advocate Love’, we are pleased to have renowned musician Jeremy Monteiro and friends as anchor performers for this fundraiser. Hosted by Gurmit Singh, we promise you nothing short of glitz and glamour replete with exquisite dining and exciting entertainment.


All proceeds raised from the Star Charity Luncheon will be channelled towards ADA’s Memories Café programme, a weekly two-hour programme set in a public café for persons with dementia and their caregivers. It is a social gathering for them to express and forge friendships through drumming, music, and dance activities and reduce the societal stigma amongst public diners in a community setting.

In our busy schedules, we may neglect those who are vulnerable to social isolation. Your generosity will give them a chance to be integrated into the community, reduce stigma, and foster a more Dementia Inclusive Singapore. Be a Star today and help us advocate love for those who need our help!

About ADA

Alzheimer’s Disease Association was formed in 1990 because of a growing concern for the needs of persons living with dementia and their caregivers. Through our work, the Association hopes to reduce stigma by increasing awareness and understanding of dementia, enabling and involving persons living with dementia to be integrated and accepted in the community. We also aspire to lead in the quality of dementia care services for persons living with dementia and their families.

As a non-profit organisation, ADA operates with limited resources. We cannot battle dementia alone. Make a donation today! Proceeds will be used to help fund our vital programmes and services that will benefit our persons with dementia and their families.
