Fash­ion designer Vivi­enne Tam, singer and actress Karen Mok and politi­cian Au­drey Eu were just a few of the lead­ing lights who spoke in sup­port of The Women’s Foun­da­tion at its 10th an­niver­sary gala din­ner. The sell-out event, which took place at the Re­nais­sance Hong Kong Har­bour View Ho­tel in Wan Chai, was at­tended by more than 500 guests and raised about HK$3 mil­lion for the char­ity. The money will fund re­search and com­mu­nity pro­grammes to help dis­ad­van­taged young girls and women in the re­gion. The mas­ter of cer­e­monies for the evening was Reuters jour­nal­ist Tara Joseph. Dur­ing din­ner in­spi­ra­tional speeches were also de­liv­ered by Su-mei Thomp­son, CEO of The Women’s Foun­da­tion, and Regina Le­ung, pres­i­dent of The Com­mu­nity Chest of Hong Kong and wife of the Chief Ex­ec­u­tive. Also in at­ten­dance was York Chow, chair­per­son of the Equal Op­por­tu­ni­ties Com­mis­sion, who said: “I ap­plaud The Women’s Foun­da­tion for their in­no­va­tive ini­tia­tives to em­power our com­mu­nity to­wards pos­i­tive change.”
