Fanning the Flames at Matchstick 2017

After sweeping the Citi-YMCA Youth For Causes awards in three categories in last year’s event, the 2017 Matchstick Concert was back – bigger, bolder and better! This was another win for our education team who have established partnerships with more than 23 schools and JC’s that include Anglo-Chinese School, Raffles Institution, Singapore Polytechnic, National Junior College, LASALLE College of the Arts and School of the Arts Singapore.

22 schools and 220 students under the leadership of Hwa Chong Institution, all came together to for a great concert with more than 600 in the audience and raising close to $650.00 for our cause.

Speaking about the project, student team leader, Auyok Ryan was confident that his project stint with the BMDP would be a valuable asset in his university applications. “Academic results are no longer enough and the Matchstick Concert gave me an exciting project to share that combined leadership, project management and a life-saving cause such as recruiting bone marrow donors”, he said.

Good luck to Auyok and all of the amazing performers as they move onto the next stage in their academic journeys and we look forward to more exciting things to come!
