Description

The Embassy of Ireland would like to invite one and all to a table quiz at McGettigan’s Irish Pub on Thursday, 24th January 2019.

This very special table quiz will see all proceeds going towards Ms. Cassandra Chui's fundraising efforts to acquire a new Guide Dog from Guide Dogs Victoria in Australia. After 7 years of fantastic teamwork with her Guide Dog, Esme, sadly, it is time for her to retire from her job as she enters her golden years.

Many of you will be familiar with Cassandra and Esme, not least because they have garnered a significant social media following from around the world in their efforts to raise awareness and acceptance for the use of guide dogs https://www.facebook.com/pg/EsmeTheGlobalGuideDog/ . It is no exaggeration to say that their efforts have made a huge impact.

Cassandra is not only a very effective social advocate and the first Singaporean woman to use a guide dog, she is also psychotherapist, a World Economic Forum Young Global Leader, a Social Innovation Park Fellow, and a recipient of The Singapore Woman Award. Pretty impressive credentials! She is also a great friend of the Irish Community in Singapore and has successfully organised the Singapore Run In The Dark chapter for the past couple of years.
