Sponsor Pink Dot 2018 next, Poh Heng?

The timing of Poh Heng’s exhibition seem to coincide nicely with Pink Dot 2018 on 21 Jul as well.

Given the restrictions imposed that only allow local companies to sponsor the event, we think Poh Heng should seriously consider lending their support for the event.

After all, Poh Heng is probably one of the most popular jewellery shops in Singapore.

Their support will no doubt go a long way in building a more inclusive society in Singapore.
