The integrated resort further supports DAS’ initiatives through active volunteerism.

In March this year, ten Marina Bay Sands volunteers  spent a day as ushers and befrienders at a DAS learning centre, where they lent their support during the free dyslexia screening programmes for students at pre-school, primary and secondary levels.

George Tanasijevich, President and Chief Executive Officer at Marina Bay Sands, said: “Beyond providing monetary support to our designated charities such as DAS, we create inspirational opportunities for beneficiaries, leveraging on our facilities or our star-studded events. Today’s Spider-Man: Homecoming red carpet event is a great example. I hope this experience was meaningful for the students from DAS, and we look forward to welcoming them to Marina Bay Sands again in the future.”

The event fittingly encourages our students to embrace their unique ways of learning due to dyslexia and create their own paths by focusing on their strengths, said Lee Siang, Chief Executive Officer.
