Leading this year's cast of supporting partners for Stars of Christmas are Komoco Motorcycles Pte Ltd(Harley-Davidson of Singapore -- Sole Authorised Dealer), Tridente Automobili Pte Ltd (Maserati -- Sole Authorised Dealer), and Community Chest -- the fund-raising and engagement arm of the National Council of Social Service.

Stars of Christmas 2017 is in support of Children's Cancer Foundation, Club Rainbow, KK Women's and Children's Hospital, and various other children's welfare organisations under Community Chest.

The three-part programme commenced with the ceremonial hanging of Christmas stars at the lobby of Mandarin Orchard Singapore, led by OUE Chief Executive Officer and Group Managing Director, Mr Thio Gim Hock. Giant Christmas trees at Mandarin Orchard Singapore and Marina Mandarin Singapore were adorned with stars indicating beneficiaries' information, so members of the public could pick the stars and purchase Christmas presents accordingly.

On 15 December, beneficiaries of Stars of Christmas 2017 along with their parents, siblings, and caregivers, were guests of honour at a Christmas luncheon hosted by OUE Executive Chairman, Dr Stephen Riady. The children were joined by employees of OUE and its affiliate companies for an afternoon of Christmas treats and entertainment at Mandarin Orchard Singapore, featuring a visit from Santa who helped give out Christmas presents.

Stars of Christmas 2017 ended with a highly anticipated Toy Run activity on the morning of 16 December, with volunteer riders on a fleet of Harley-Davidson motorcycles and Maserati cars making for a festive spectacle on the Orchard Road frontage of Mandarin Gallery. Children and caregivers from Thye Hwa Kwan Family Service Centre, together with employees of OUE Limited and Mandarin Orchard Singapore, cheered on the riders as their convoy set off to deliver Christmas presents to various beneficiaries.

Upwards of 1,500 beneficiaries received presents under this year's OUE Stars of Christmas community programme.
