Long queue for pay-as-you-wish buffet at Orchard: Carousel raises $11,000 for charity

If you were at Royal Plaza on Scotts in Orchard Road on Saturday morning (Feb 18), you would have probably noticed a long queue outside the building. 

The snaking line was formed by diners waiting to have a pay-as-you-wish buffet lunch at Carousel. 

Stomper Stephanie who was there that day saw staff from Royal Plaza on Scotts handing out water and cookies to customers in the queue as they patiently waited for their turn to dine at the restaurant.

Carousel was celebrating its 10th anniversary and customers could pay any amount they wished for their meals.

Profits of the event went The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund, which supports more than 13,000 children and youths a year in providing them with monthly school pocket money. 

According to AsiaOne, the hotel donated profits from the event totalling $11,222 to the fund. 

This amount is inclusive of a donation of $4,000 (the value of one membership fee) from The British Club.

Chief Experience Officer (CEO) and General Manager of Royal Plaza on Scotts, Mr Patrick Fiat, said: "We are honoured to share this joyous occasion with our guests and to do our part in giving back to the society."
