    Arts, charity connect at United Square

    IMMERSE yourself in the arts at United Square this month, while supporting a good cause at the same time.

    Next Saturday, the adjoining Novena underpass will be decked out with 900 tiles, printed with images of the works of art by children from local charity Very Special Arts (VSA).

    The installation is part of Project Epic-P - which stands for enterprising, passionate, innovative and caring people - and is being organised in conjunction with UOL Group's 50th anniversary celebrations.

    Staff from the group, which owns malls United Square and Velocity, will set up the display along with secondary school student volunteers. Shoppers and passers-by will be invited to participate, too.

    Also happening is an art exhibition by VSA, at United Square's atrium from next Thursday to Sunday.

    If something catches your eye, make it yours - prices start from $188.

    There is no lack of activities for young ones this month, either.

    Kids can enrol for arts and crafts activities taking place next Saturday, at a fee of $5.

    They can also join in the fun at the brand new Thomas Saves The Day live show, which will take place from today till Monday.

    Among the Thomas & Friends characters which will be at the show is The Fat Controller.

    Kids will be kept entertained with their favourite songs from the hit children's series, and given train whistles.

    The first 50 families to register for the show will get the chance to participate in a meet-and-greet session with the characters.

    What's more, the Golden Ticket Charity Auction will be held next weekend, with over 80 products and vouchers - worth more than $25,000 in total - to go under the hammer.

    Simply spend $100 and you'll be able to make a bid, as well as rub shoulders with Kiss92 DJs John Klass, Melody Chen and Claressa Monteiro, who will be hosting the auction.

    All proceeds from the auction, exhibition and craft activities will be donated to VSA.

    Head down to United Square, and spend and contribute to a good cause this Great Singapore Sale.
