In times of crisis, music uplifts us.
To drive donations for Community Chest’s The Invictus Fund, Senoko Energy is partnering with creative agency GERMS to present "Power Gig”, a weekend-long online fundraising music festival starting 1st May. The festival will kick off with a two-hour live stream performance on official radio station Mediacorp YES 933's Facebook page and radio broadcast, and will feature 9 Singaporean artistes including Benjamin Kheng, Guo Mei Mei, Derrick Hoh, and Sara Wee.
Over the weekend, there will also be several local artistes such as Miss Lou, Abby Simone, Joie Tan, and Dru Chen who will perform live on their Instagram accounts.
This festival will help drive donations to The Invictus Fund, which will help enable over 80 social service agencies supported by Community Chest to continue providing critical social services amidst COVID-19. Many charities are working doubly hard to ensure the vulnerable are not forgotten during this period, but they face multiple challenges, including:
Senoko Energy will match donations dollar-for-dollar up to S$30,000. 100% of your donations goes to over 80 charities providing critical services to various vulnerable groups, including children with special needs and youth-at-risk, adults with disabilities, families in need, vulnerable seniors and persons with mental health conditions.
Join us today and support The Invictus Fund, to enable social service agencies to continue providing critical services to those who need it, especially now.
All donations are eligible for 250% tax deduction. Final donation results will be published on 2nd June 2020 on Senoko Energy's Facebook page.

The Invictus Fund is a newly established fund set up by the National Council of Social Service. It supports about 80 local social service agencies by Community Chest that deliver critical services to vulnerable groups, including children with special needs and youth-at-risk, adults with disabilities, families in need, vulnerable seniors and persons with mental health conditions.
Due the sudden and severe loss in manpower as volunteering activities and events are cut during the COVID-19 period, there is a loss of fundraising proceeds. As such, there is an urgent need to garner donations and support for these non-profit organisations to ensure that they can continue operations during this period.
Beneficiaries include Wendy Seet and Daryl Tan. Read their stories below.
Final donation results will be published on 2 June 2020 on Senoko Energy's Facebook page.
Wendy Seet contracted polio at the tender age of 3. Since then, the mobility of her right hand and leg had been affected and till today she uses a motorised wheelchair to move within the community. Without close relatives or family, Wendy had to support herself and face her challenges alone.
Things became worse when Wendy was retrenched in 1995 due to the economic downturn. She felt helpless without the means to support herself and she was all by herself. Until she found Bizlink Centre’s Vocational Assessment Division, a sheltered workshop that helps to provide on-the-job training and employment opportunities for people with disabilities. With the right support and training, Wendy is now able to support herself, even acquired skills in Information Technology and most importantly, able to gain independence.
Daryl Tan was diagnosed with bipolar disorder when he was just 19 years old. He was experiencing cycles of mood swings, stress and that kept him paranoid and troubled. He did not know how to handle his struggles or who he could turn to for help. It was a daily struggle he had to face alone.
Until he had help from Club Heal, a social service agency that provides counselling, day rehabilitation and empowerment sessions to help persons with mental health conditions. With support and encouragement, Daryl made progress towards his recovery. He learned to manage his challenges and today he has stepped up to be a Peer Specialist, supporting and believing in other people with mental health conditions, so that they can be confident in their recovery journey.
