Hong Kong super star Jackie Chan flew to Singapore for the premier of his latest action flick, ‘Police Story 2013’, at the Marina Bay Sands on Sentosa Island.
Twenty youngsters from Boys’ Town got to meet the actor while he was in Singapore.
“We would like to thank Sands for Singapore for giving our boys the privilege and rare opportunity to meet and interact with Jackie Chan, an international movie star,” says Adrienne Sng, Deputy Director for Boys’ Town.

“We take great pride in giving back to the local community in meaningful ways through Sands for Singapore,” says Mr George Tanasijevich, President and Chief Executive Officer of Marina Bay Sands.
“It is an honour to have Jackie Chan here to imbed invaluable experiences that our youth will take with them into the future.”
