Dear Partner,

We hope that you’ve kept healthy and safe during the Circuit Breaker and are transitioning into Phase 1 smoothly.

The past nine weeks must have been a challenging transition for the workplace and for your families. We hope that amidst the many disruptions, you and your loved ones have been able to make space for tackling obstacles with creativity, building meaningful relationships and getting rest.

As of 19 May 2020, the multi-ministry task force on the Covid-19 outbreak made announcements of the plans to reopen Singapore progressively in three phases of Safe Reopening, Safe Transition and Safe Nation, and maintaining this phase three Safe Nation status as our “new normal” until a vaccine is found.

We understand that the measures are put in place to safeguard our communities and our people. As we continue to forge ahead in overcoming the COVID-19 crisis together as a nation, Halogen Foundation will also need to practise civic responsibility and comply with safe management practices that are being set in place.

Upon evaluating the options to proceed, we have made a decision to postpone The Halogen Ball to 7 January 2021, Thursday.

We would like to save your dates in advance, so that you may be able to join us! We are very pleased to also note that our Guest-of-Honour, President Halimah Yacob, has graciously accepted the postponement and will be at our dinner on 07 January 2021. All dinner arrangements will also be fully carried forward to the January date.

While we are not able to have a celebration with you this year, do know that we are right with you, forging alongside as we continue to persevere amidst these uncertain times. We’ve prepared a special update attached, to share with you what has also transpired at Halogen Foundation over the months of April and May.

We very much look forward to gathering again in the fresh year, to celebrate the resilience and tenacity the nation has displayed in such difficult and unprecedented times. We look forward to reuniting with you in this time of Celebrate The Best Of Us. 

If you have any questions or clarifications to make, please do not hesitate to reach out to me at [email protected].

We look forward to hosting you in January 2021, we will do this together!

Regards and well-wishes,

Ms. Ivy Tse
Chief Executive Officer
