So­ci­ety for the Pro­tec­tion of Chil­dren Ball

Hong Kong Tatler - - Soiree -

More than 200 VIPS filled the Is­land Shangri-la Ball­room for a mem­o­rable night of fundrais­ing for the Hong Kong So­ci­ety for the Pro­tec­tion of Chil­dren at its an­nual ball. Ti­tled World of Won­der and spon­sored by Louis Vuit­ton, the ball opened with a per­for­mance by chil­dren from the preschool of the so­ci­ety’s Port­land Street cen­tre. The chair of fundrais­ing, Jacqueline Chow, also made a heart­felt speech. A lively auc­tion was con­ducted dur­ing a sump­tu­ous five-course din­ner. Af­ter­wards, guests pro­ceeded out­side for a si­lent auc­tion that fea­tured art­works by Lin Guocheng and Chloe Ho. They were also able to view the Women of Won­der ex­hi­bi­tion, a col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween Louis Vuit­ton and Hong Kong Tatler, which fea­tured pho­to­graphs of five no­table women— Clau­dine Ying, Gigi Chao, Yip Wing-sie, Ma­bel Che­ung and Mar­garet Xu­­— who lent their faces to help raise funds. Al­most HK$30 mil­lion was raised for the char­ity. Guests seen at the event in­cluded Joyce Tam, David Har­ilela and Purviz Shroff.
