Dear Friends,

In the interests of care in the present COVID-19 situation in Singapore, we have decided to reschedule our 20 th  Anniversary Gala Dinner from 17 July 2020 to 6 November 2020. We are very grateful for your understanding of this decision.

Thankfully, the Guest-of Honour, President Halimah Yacob, our Patron, Speaker of Parliament Mr Tan Chuan-Jin, and Minister for Foreign Affairs Dr Vivian Balakrishnan have
agreed to attend on the new dates. We are pleased that they have been able to accommodate our request, and to lend their support to the Centre for Fathering and DADs for Life.

My colleagues and I have been working on the event and I’m pleased to let you know that an evening of good food and music is in store. The dinner menu will feature the creations of
Head Chef Aitor Jeronimo Orive of Michelin-starred Basque Kitchen by Aitor. There will also be a performance by the acclaimed T’ang Quartet.

As Singapore bands together to ride out this challenging season of COVID-19 pandemic, the Centre for Fathering remains fully committed to providing unwavering support towards
helping fathers become meaningfully engaged with their family at home and whilst on the frontline.

With many fathers working at home this month, it is indeed an opportune time for fathers to bond better with their families. While our on-site programmes and fathers group meetings have halted, this has not stopped us from reaching fathers through online workshops. Many fathers’ groups are also pressing on to meet up online!

To engage families who are spending more time at home, we have also designed various resources such as conversation starters extracted from the DADs for Life Knowing Me
Knowing You family card game, as well as DADs Guides with useful tips for fathers on COVID-19. Do check out our DADs for Life Facebook page at!

Please accept our sincere apologies for any inconvenience caused. We do hope that you’ll be able to join us on 6 November 2020. My colleagues will be following up with youindividually to confirm your attendance and dietary preferences. Should you require further clarification, please feel free to contact my colleague, Ms Hema Krishnan, at On behalf of the Board, our organizing committee and all our staff, may you and your loved ones stay well and healthy this season.

Warmest Regards,

Bryan Tan
Centre for Fathering and DADs for Life
