Actress Zoe Tay performed a peacock-themed dance at the 17th President's Star Charity show on Sunday night (Oct 23), which raised a record $7.37 million, nearly $1 million more than last year.
Proceeds will go to 58 charities supported by this year's President's Challenge. President Tony Tan Keng Yam graced last night's event, which was hosted by news presenter Glenda Chong and actor Chua Enlai.
The show also featured a performance by the cast of Broadway musical Wicked and a tribute to the late former President S R Nathan.
