A Children’s event
Wendy’s has prided itself as being a company that still incorporates its founder, Dave Thomas’s compassion for children into their very philosophy. In the US, Wendy has initiatives like the Wendy’s Wonderful Kids adoption program.
Wendy’s Singapore strives to continue Dave’s legacy. In partnership with The Salvation Army Gracehaven, Singapore, Wendy’s Singapore hosted their children for an afternoon of fun and free, great tasting food. The event had the children split up into teams and moving around the Liat Towers outlet to solve certain interesting puzzles and play different games. The kids also got to enjoy a specially prepared lunch, on the house.
Assistant Director for Wendy’s Singapore, Faith Wang praised Dave Thomas’ love for children and emphasized that she wanted to continue his legacy here in Singapore. Faith said that Wendy’s was proud to host the ‘Happy Moments or Every Child’ event and hoped “ it is the start of something bigger”.
The theme of the event itself was inspired by the idea that it is the little moments I life that come together to build a portrait of a happy childhood, be it a weekend lunch with parents or an outing with friends. Wendy’s strived to provide as many of those happy moments as possible.
