There will also be a dialogue session where a number of successful entrepreneurs and corporate stakeholders will be sharing their success stories with the public.

Other activities will also be held, such as a colouring contest, spelling bee, radio-controlled (RC) Mini Z tournament, car boot sale as well as games organised by youth of the Youth Centre.

The event is open to all from 2pm to 10pm on March 15, 10am to 10pm on March 16, and 8am to 8pm on March 17.

Ten per cent of proceeds from the event will go to the National Orphans Fund.
