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.
