Celebrating life at HCA’s 25th Anniversary Gala Dinner

On 21st March, HCA Hospice Care celebrated its 25th Anniversary with a fundraising gala dinner graced by President Tony Tan.

That evening, we offered a fond farewell to Council President of 12 years, Dr Seet Ai Mee, and welcomed Dr Tan Poh Kiang as the new HCA President.

We would like to thank all donors, sponsors, and volunteers who raised up to a total of $920,000 and contributed in one way or another towards the event to make it an amazing one.
