Kaye Tinga

Kaye Tinga, captivated by the Philanthropic Excellence Awards, remarked, “It’s very inspiring to see people from all walks of life really contribute to society. It just shows that anybody with the will to help can do it; you just have to want to do it.” 

Her appreciation extended to the gala itself, celebrating both familiar and unfamiliar faces dedicated to positive change. 

Lifestyle Asia paid tribute to all these people who’ve been helping—some we know, some we don’t know, which I love. Also, I really love this concept of being away from the city. It’s almost Christmas, becoming hectic, so it’s really a treat for us to come to a different place, and I love this concept. It’s so much fun.”
