For its 5th anniversary, DBS Insignia Visa Infinite Card threw a grand party at the ballroom of The South Beach hotel on May 27. Guests of DBS and The Peak were treated to a gastronomic experience like none other, as Michelin-star chef Anthony Demetre from the UK was flown in for the night to prepare a wine-paired dinner (wines by Stellez Vine).
PHOTOGRAPHY VEE CHIN & JASPER YU
As the theme of the night was philanthropy, keynote speaker Stefanie Yuen Thio took to the stage to share her journey on giving. DBS Insignia Visa Infinite Card also partnered The Community Foundation of Singapore, and all proceeds raised that night through a silent auction and raffle draw went to Willing Hearts, Mercy Relief, Lions Befrienders and billionBricks. Sponsors Gaggenau, The Macallan, WingsOverAsia, Laguna National Golf & Country Club and The Shanti Residences generously contributed to the silent auction experiences.
The Peak is proud to be the official media partner for this spectacular evening.
