Singapore Chinese Garden is not something new for Singapore residents. But, this Saturday, there is fun at Chinese Garden on the occasion of the Singapore Totalisator’s Board’s 20th anniversary and Singapore Pools’ 40th anniversary. They call it “FunTasia“; not sure how they came up with this name. Anyway, let’s see what they say about it:
FunTasia is a carnival organised by the Tote family to thank all our beneficiaries, supporters, volunteers, customers, business partners, friends, stakeholders and staff. It is the support that they have given through the years that have helped us to attain our goals of providing legalized gaming in a socially responsible manner, and channeling profits to good cause funding in Singapore.
