Danc­ing Queens

Hong Kong Tatler Society - - TOP 20 PARTIES OF THE YEAR -

The Pink Ball at the Grand Hy­att was an evening of cock­tails, fundrais­ing and danc­ing—lots of it. Even bet­ter, it raised HK$6 mil­lion for the Hong Kong Hered­i­tary Breast Can­cer Fam­ily Reg­istry, which pro­vides free ge­netic screen­ing and con­sul­ta­tions for un­der­priv­i­leged fam­i­lies at risk of breast, ovar­ian and prostate can­cer. Its chair­man, Ava Kwong, wel­comed guests with an update on the reg­istry’s progress and high­lighted its suc­cess sto­ries. The live band had guests on the dance­floor early on, and in­deed into the early hours, with crowd-pleasers like I Will Sur­vive. Patrick Wang, mean­while, got flow­ers and a stand­ing ova­tion for his dance rou­tine, which alone raised HK$1 mil­lion, while an ex­u­ber­ant per­for­mance by pro­fes­sional dancers Mar­cel Fre­cau­tanu and Jurij Batagelj had the au­di­ence mes­merised. That left just the raf­fle prize draw and the clos­ing of the silent auc­tion to fin­ish the night—and per­haps a bit more danc­ing.
