Our 2017 Annual Gala Dinner saw overwhelming support, as we celebrated yet another successful Hong Kong Festival, coupled by celebrating the 20th anniversary of the establishment of the Hong Kong SAR.
We are proud to host our 2018 Annual Gala Dinner at the Cordis once again! Joining us, will be celebrity guest speaker Mr. Mike Allsop. Airline pilot, Everest mountaineer, Mike has also completed a number of extraordinary achievements including seven marathons in seven days on seven continents, one of which was the 2013 Hong Kong Marathon.
As with previous years, we will be conducting a silent auction. This year all proceeds will be going to the Chinese New Settlers Services Trust, a charity that offers comprehensive services to the wider community of new Asian Settlers. The charity foundation also organizes a Kiwi-Dragon Cultural Exchange Scholarship program. The purpose of this program is to provide financial support to local young Kiwis that have financial difficulties and providing them with a meaningful Chinese cultural experience trip.
With already over 100 RSVPs to the gala dinner, we look forward to you all joining us for an charitable and enjoyable evening.
