The Chronicles of Narnia: The Exhibition raised $71,197 at the end of its three month run at the skating rink at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands. The proceeds from the ticket sales of the exhibition were presented to the General Manager of The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund, Ms. Martina Wong, today, demonstrating Marina Bay Sands‘ commitment to supporting the youth of Singapore.

Since it opened on 3 December, 2011, close to 16,000 paying visitors have explored the magical world of Narnia, taking the young and old alike on an adventure, inspired by the legendary C.S. Lewis. Initially slated to end in January, the exhibition‘s popularity and demand for tickets saw the exhibition extend until 26 February 2012.
Mr. George Tanasijevich, President and Chief Executive Officer for Marina Bay Sands, and Managing Director, Global Development, Las Vegas Sands Corp., said, ―Marina Bay Sands is committed to making a positive and lasting impact on disadvantaged youth in Singapore. We are delighted that the members of the public enjoyed this exhibition and in doing so, helped support the important work of The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund to enrich the lives of over 10,000 children in need.

The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund helps children from low-income families pay for meals at school, transport fees to and from school, or use it to meet their other schooling needs.

Ms. Martina Wong, General Manager of The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund, said, ―Marina Bay Sands has been very supportive of The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund and I look forward to greater partnership and collaboration with Marina Bay Sands.
