There’s a slightly amusing photo circulating online of the flashiest, sleekest Lamborghini sports cars patiently waiting in line as they are held up by a lorry in the Punggol neighbourhood.
The dramatic turnout was all for a good, honest cause—the Lamborghini Club Singapore showed up in impressive numbers (more than 40 of them!) to raise funds for Children’s Day in the HDB heartlands of the Punggol Coast.
On the afternoon of October 6, a fleet of luxurious Lamborghini automobiles, so shiny that you can see your reflection in their meticulously waxed exteriors, made their way to a multi-purpose hall at Block 324 Sumang Walk in Punggol.
Curious onlookers were probably shocked at the ostentatious sight, but Punggolians are used to the event. Since 2013, Lamborghini Club Singapore has been carrying out charity drives in Punggol, when the convoy only had 15 cars.
They have since grown in number, and when gathered together, they make quite the sight, for even folks who don’t have a particular interest in automobiles can’t deny being impressed (and maybe even a little intimidated!) at the beauty, speed and power of the Lamborghini.
many many lambo; raise fund for children in Singapore 👍🏼

This year, the club partnered up with the People’s Association to raise money as part of a Children’s Day celebration with the Punggol Coast community.
Dubbed the Children’s Day Celebration & Lamborghini Fund Raising 2019, the event was all about giving the children a wonderful day and giving back to the community.
Residents that were at the Punggol Coast's Children’s Day Celebration & Lamborghini Fund Raising 2019, hope you all had…
The highlights of the event were fun performances, carnival games, pony rides, balloon sculpting, face painting, glitter tattooing, bouncing castles, popcorn, ice cream, candy floss and food from McDonald’s. Sounds like the perfect day for kiddies—but there was something that made them even more ecstatic.
The children went wild for the free Lamborghini rides, which ferried them to and from Orchard and Punggol. Who wants to make balloon animals when you can joyride in a fancy sports car?
The sight of the Italian sports cars was more than exciting, and it even made one Facebook user say, “Makes me wish I was a Punggolian.”
My brother took this, the annual Lamborghini event in Punggol. Makes me wish I was a Punggolian.

Senior Minister Teo Chee Hean and Senior Minister of State for Transport Dr Janil Puthucheary (both Members of Parliament for Pasir Ris-Punggol GRC) attended the celebration and spent some time with the kids.
Dr Puthucheary even took to Facebook to post pictures of the day, with this write-up:
“Children’s Day Carnival and Charity fund-raising supported by the Lamborghini Club of Singapore for the 7th straight year! Thank you to all the Drivers and Donors and Volunteers and Supporters for making this happen. The kids had a great time! #punggolcoast”
Lamborghini Club Singapore members and drivers went all out for the kids, who were all smiles on their special day. /TISG
