A fundraiser featuring live jazz performances will be held at the Botanic Gardens on Aug 20. The event is organised by the Action for Singapore Dogs (ASD) to raise funds for canine rescue and rehome efforts.

Titled Jazz For Dogs, the event will take place at the Shaw Foundation Symphony Stage from 5pm to 7pm.

This year’s lineup of guest performers include jazz artiste Sinclair Ang, vocalist Siti Nur Iman and local musician Carol Gomez, who has also performed at previous runs of the event.

Past Jazz For Dogs events also featured performances by Methodist Girls’ School String Ensemble, The Raindogs and Stephen Francis.

While admission to the concert is free, attendees are encouraged to offer their support to the cause by purchasing a picnic pack at $128. Early bird prices are currently available for the picnic pack at $108.

Each picnic basket – worth  $300 – contains wine, drinks, sweet and savoury snacks, a Jazz For Dogs picnic mat and a limited edition bandana for dogs.

An ongoing giveaway is open to Singaporean residents aged 18 and above. To enter, participants must purchase a picnic pack and follow all sponsoring brands on each social media platform where the giveaway is hosted.

The first prize is a Singapore Airlines economy class round-trip air ticket to Bangkok. NTUC shopping vouchers worth $300 and $200 will be awarded to the second and third winners respectively, while the fourth prize is a $100 voucher to restaurant Handlebar at Gillman Barracks.

The giveaway will conclude on Aug 19 and winners will be notified via email.

Visitors may also purchase human grade home cooked meals by Furry’s Kitchen for their canine companions at $10 per portion, with a purchase of a picnic pack.

ASD is a non-profit organisation set up in 2000 to improve the welfare of stray and abandoned dogs in Singapore.
