When July 13
What Back in the 1970s, Seow Peck Leng, founding president of the Singapore Women's Association, started organising beauty pageants for charity, using it as a platform to encourage women to help the underprivileged and less fortunate. The late politician, educator and advocate for women’s rights may have passed on in 2007, but her legacy—and fervent enthusiasm to push beauty pageantry as a tool for doing good—remains. This is why the annual Miss Singapore International beauty pageant will continue to headline the programme of the 44th SWA Charity Gala Dinner at the Grand Copthorne Waterfront Singapore.
Winners will be invited to participate in the Miss International and Miss Supranational beauty pageants held later this year in Japan and Poland, respectively.
