More than $1.2 million was raised at the two dinners on Wednesday and last night, as more than 1,000 local and regional business leaders pledged their donations via their mobile phones.

Exceptional people: Coaching at-risk children


His day job involves organising events and conferences for companies, but on Thursday nights, Mr Irza Fauzan Suprapto, 35, is a football coach at a street soccer court near Chin Swee Road.

For each session, Mr Irza puts about 20 children through various football drills before ending with a friendly match.

The football training is one of many initiatives by Catch Plus, an after-school programme run by the Kreta Ayer-Kim Seng Citizens' Consultative Committee.

Other than football, Catch Plus also works with community partners such as Mendaki, Rotaract Club and Heartware Network to provide other programmes - including tuition and reading and literacy classes.
