May magic

Hong Kong Tatler - - Concierge -

irst ini­tia­tive Foun­da­tion (FIF) chair­man Michelle Ong has a mighty month ahead of her, hav­ing brought to­gether a dream team of mu­si­cians, artists and so­ci­ety heavy­weights to raise money for cul­tural com­mu­nity out­reach pro­grammes. On May 29, the FIF will host a mas­ter­class with Chi­nese pi­anist Sa Chen at the Hong Kong Polytech­nic Uni­ver­sity, fol­lowed by a recital by the Di­o­tima Quar­tet and Sa Chen at the Academy for Per­form­ing Arts on May 30. Later that evening, the FIF will take over the Grand Hy­att Ball­rooom for its lav­ish fundrais­ing gala. More than 400 guests will en­joy a meal crafted by Ni­co­las Masse, whose restau­rant at Les Sources De Cau­dalie be­side Château Smith Haut Lafitte has two Miche­lin stars. Guests will re­ceive a be­spoke box of Pierre Hermé mac­arons that will fea­ture an ink work by artist Chloe Ho (pic­tured with Ong, left).
