The Charity Premiere of ‘Speed Racer’ was held on 6th May 2008 at Golden Village VivoCity. The monies from the ticket sales were channeled to the Singapore Disability Sports Council’s programmes and initiatives to bring sports to the disabled community.
The event saw many corporate sponsors support as well as individual supporters who pledged their tickets to our beneficiaries. The beneficiaries were thrilled when they knew there were sponsored tickets up for grabs to be the first to catch the premiere of Speed Racer’ in Singapore.
Supported by Golden Village, supporters were treated to the premiere of ‘Speed Racer’ a highly action packed movie for all ages. Rain, the Korean heartthrob was also featured In the film and thrilled the Rain fans in Singapore who were highly supportive of this premiere.
