Fullerton Concours d'Elegance Opening Ceremony Gala Dinner And Awards Night
The inaugural Fullerton Concours d'Elegance launched in Singapore over an elegant weekend affair that began with an opening ceremony gala followed by an awards night. When Giovanni Viterale, general manager of The Fullerton Heritage, said that he was fast becoming an expert in vintage cars, he wasn't joking. There were 26 classic cars on display around the Fullerton Bay area, making the event an exclusive opportunity to learn—and appreciate—such beautiful wheels.
Apart from the invaluable experience of seeing these classic cars up close, the Concours d'Elegance also commemorated the 90th anniversary of the iconic Fullerton Building. To mark the milestone, a "Mile Zero" plaque was unveiled during the opening ceremony (the term "Mile Zero" was used by the British in the past to reference the building using the milestone system for measuring distances). At the awards night, guests came in chic black tie attire to enjoy a night of tasteful revelry, a highlight of which was the bespoke dinner menu by Gen.T-lister chef Malcolm Lee of Candlenut. The awards night ended with a celebration of the best cars on show with their owners clearly beaming with pride when they accepted the accolades. Both the opening gala and awards night included an auction for the President's Challenge, which would benefit various charities, causes and social service organisations.
