Charity Tonight, we are very proud to support the amazing work of Kidz Horizon Appeal. Established in 2004, Kidz Horizon Appeal is a charitable organization that attends specifically to the medical needs of the most vulnerable in society – the needy children with chronic illnesses.

The Kidz Horizon Appeal is made up of like-minded friends from various industries who have come together to volunteer their time and resources to help the less fortunate children who are ill, by raising funds and volunteering towards the KKH Health Fund.

Since it started, the Appeal has adopted the KKH Health Fund (KKHHF) and almost a million dollars is raised annually to help children with chronic illnesses, including cancer.

The Kidz Horizon Appeal was being conferred the President’s Social Service Award – Informal Group in October 2009 for relieving needy patients of their worries over medical expenses. We are thrilled that your purchases tonight will go in part to support this incredible organization and its important work.

Into its 19th successful year, the Appeal has been able to raise over $15 million to help more than 1,500 needy patients alleviate the financial burden for their families and allowed them to concentrate on helping their loved ones get better.

Tonight, inclusive those in glamorou of the Am this even raised fu of needy and debi and effec

President’s Message I am delighted to warmly welcome each of you to this night of “Hollywood Glamour” at the 87th George Washington Ball. Over the years, the American community has gathered around the time of our first President’s birthday to celebrate the principles of our founders - equality, liberty, justice, rights and opportunity – and, of course, to share in the pursuit of happiness.

family fun events. It offers cultural exchanges and culinary excursions, opportunities for participation in volunteer and charity activities, career support and networking activities, and community engagement for newcomers as well as old hands. We hope you’ll join us. It has been three years since we hosted the 86th George Washington Ball, the longest gap between balls since the 1940s. Reviving this tradition and creating such a complex and appealing event would not have been possible without the dedicated efforts of the resourceful and tireless GWB Organizing Committee, led by Chairperson Valerie Brandt in her eighth time organizing the committee’s impressive work. Our outstanding AAS staff too has done heroic work on the preparations, led by energetic Events Manger, Sabrina Lim, under the direction of our peerless General Manager, Melinda Murphy. A huge vote of gratitude to them all.

Tonight, we are here also to celebrate our diversity and inclusiveness, and to demonstrate our generosity toward those in need. I am confident there has never been a more glamorous or more generous gathering in the 106-year history of the American Association of Singapore. Our charity beneficiary this evening is Kidz Horizon Appeal, which in its 18 years has raised funds to help with the treatment and medical support of needy children suffering from cancer, HIV and other chronic and debilitating illnesses. We are proud to support this respected and effective Singapore charity.

Finally, I want to offer my sincere appreciation to our Annual Strategic Partners: Patriot Partners: Singapore American School and XCL American Academy; Stars & Stripes Partners: Allied Movers, Stamford International School, TD Ameritrade, The American Club; Community Partners: SIRVA BGRS Worldwide. Their unwavering support has allowed us to recover and prosper as a service organization dedicated to the American and expatriate community. Thank you also to the many sponsors and auction prize donors whose generous support has made this year’s George Washington Ball possible.

It is our privilege to have with us for this occasion the Ambassador of the United States, The Honorable Jonathan Kaplan, and the Ambassador of Ukraine, Her Excellency Kateryna Zelenko. We also welcome our guests from the US Navy, our sister community organizations, and from American schools, the business community, and local supporters from around Singapore.

In the glamour of this red-carpet evening, I hope you will celebrate the values we share, revel in the joy of the friendships we’ve made, and join us for new adventures and challenges. So, places everyone: Lights, camera, action!

For many Americans living and working here, AAS is a link to the culture of the United States. It strives to establish our community within the vibrant cultural mosaic that is Singapore. In addition to this spectacular Ball, AAS sponsors many wonderful community events, such as the annual Fourth of July celebration, a Thanksgiving celebration and other seasonal, sports and

FIND YOUR EXCELLENCE HERE At Stamford, I was able to try out AP courses in different subject areas to figure out what subjects interested me. The school’s music department also supported my interest in music and offered me numerous performance opportunities. The personal attention given to each student is one of the unique features of Stamford. Everyone has their own interests and goals, and the faculty and academic counseling team have worked with each of us personally to find a path that fits our needs. I'm currently attending UC Berkeley to pursue a Bachelor of Science in Chemical Biology, and a Bachelor of Arts in music as well. My ultimate goal is to use my education and passion for the sciences to make a difference, whether it’s in medical practice or medical research.
