ENLIGHTEN ACTION FOR EPILEPSY, GRAND HYATT; DECEMBER 14
Hong Kong’s almost 70,000 epilepsy sufferers received a boost on December 14 when, as part of Enlighten Action for Epilepsy’s 10th Anniversary celebration, the charity held a grand gala dinner at the Grand Hyatt to generate funds to raise epilepsy awareness and support those with the condition. Themed as Old Hong Kong of the ’60s, the funfilled gala dinner transported guests back to that vibrant decade with cheongsam-clad ladies and period street-scene backdrops.
Drawing on its heavyweight arsenal of supporters, Enlighten was able to call on Hong Kong Secretary for Food and Health, Dr Ko Wing-man, as guest of honour, while honorary patron Anson Chan was also in attendance, along with the charity’s ambassador Karen Mok.
The evening started with a cocktail reception outside the ballroom, where guests could mingle and catch up as they took part in a silent auction, after which the party moved to the impressively retro-decorated ballroom for a five-course dinner. Dancers kept the guests entertained throughout the evening, whose highlight was the auction of a beautiful Peonia diamond necklace from Prince Jewellery and a stunning painting by pioneering artist Fang Zhaoling, the mother of Anson Chan. After the auction guests hit the dance floor, with DJs providing classic beats.
Balia Chan, Cecil Chao and Shirley Cheung were among the guests, alongside Candy Law, Frank Li, Sharon Pong, Ivy Tong, Albert Wong, Almen Wong, Amy Wong, Michael Wong and many more. Prestige Hong Kong acted as media partner for the event.
