Worthwhile Journey Save the Children Gala
A performance by Arnel Pineda, lead singer of the rock band Journey, received thunderous applause from the more than 300 guests gathered at the Four Seasons hotel for the annual Save the Children Gala, which was sponsored by the Prudence Foundation, the charitable arm of insurer Prudential in Asia. The charity’s chairman, Barry Stowe, delivered a welcoming speech before dinner, and representatives from Save the Children organizations in the region addressed the guests as they dined. An auction—which included boxing gloves, a jacket and T-shirts autographed by boxer Manny Pacquiao, and a guitar autographed by the members of Journey—fetched HK$6.3 million for Save the Children’s work in aiding vulnerable children around the world. Actress-singer Gigi Leung was also present at the event.
