Hong Kong Tatler - - Soiree -

To raise funds for set­ting up a cen­tre of ex­cel­lence for chil­dren suf­fer­ing from di­a­betes, Youth Di­a­betes Ac­tion hosted its an­nual Spring Fling fundraiser, themed Me­trop­o­lis, at the Con­rad Hong Kong. The ho­tel ball­room was trans­formed into a cityscape of dif­fer­ent build­ings with the help of the tal­ented Sil­vio Berge and his cre­ative team. More than 300 guests from high so­ci­ety at­tended the glam­orous evening, in­clud­ing guest of hon­our Ko Wing-man (Hong Kong’s Sec­re­tary for Food and Health), Mah­naz Lee, David and Avisha Har­ilela, Joy Slosar, Matthew and Lianne Lam, and many oth­ers.

Youth Di­a­betes Ac­tion re­ceived gen­er­ous do­na­tions from its sup­port­ers—more than HK$3 mil­lion was raised for much­needed space, equip­ment and sup­plies for chil­dren suf­fer­ing from di­a­betes. Among nu­mer­ous donors, Rusy and Purvis Shroff spon­sored a li­brary and ed­u­ca­tion room at the cen­tre of ex­cel­lence, ded­i­cated to learn­ing and re­search on di­a­betes care.
