SINGAPORE. Calling all wine companies. The Moodie Davitt Smile Raising Charity Dinner, to be held on Saturday 6 May in Singapore, seeks a CSR-minded wine company (or companies) to support the near sold-out event.
The dinner, to be held at Hotel Fort Canning, will raise funds and visibility for international cleft charity Smile Train.
The wine partner (red/white and Champagne/sparkling wine) will enjoy high-profile publicity before, during and after the glittering occasion. The event has drawn a stellar audience of 240 members from the travel retail community, including many leading retailers. Only a few places now remain.
“All proceeds from the evening go to Smile Train so we are very keen to find a partner that can help us with one of the key event costs, support an oustanding charity and gain some great visibility into the bargain,” said The Moodie Davitt Report Founder & Chairman Martin Moodie.
Tito’s Handmade Vodka is a Diamond Partner and exclusive vodka sponsor at the event, while in an important travel retail industry event first, Lyre’s is sponsoring the non-alchohol drinks.
Founded in 2019 by Mark Livings and Carl Hartmann, Lyre’s offers a range of 18 non-alcoholic spirits, five ready to drink 250ml mixed cocktails, and Classico Grande 750ml, a non-alcoholic Italian- style sparkling.
Staying with the wine theme, Lotte Duty Free, the Korean number one and world number two travel retailer has donated an extraordinary six-bottle collection of Château Margaux, the famous Bordeaux first growth and among the world’s greatest wine, for live auction at the dinner.

About The Smile Raising Charity Dinner
The Smile Raising Charity Dinner at Singapore’s Hotel Fort Canning marks our 21st year in business and our fourth charity dinner to be held in Asia. Previous events in Hong Kong (2007 and 2012) and Singapore (2019) have raised almost US$1 million collectively for the nominated charities.
Smile Train has been among The Moodie Davitt Report’s preferred charities since 2007 when the Hong Kong gala dinner raised over US$300,000 for the cause.
Over the past 15 years, we have helped generate more than US$2.5 million for Smile Train through our own donations (including from The Virtual Travel Retail Expo and The Trinity Forum), charity dinners; the ‘Miles for Smiles’ fun runs in Dubai and around the world; and even a world-record, highest altitude rock gig at the Summit of Mount Kilimanjaro called The Chasing Rainbows Tour.
