MOTHER’S CHOICE GALA DIN­NER

Hong Kong Tatler - - Faces -

With the theme “A Night in Hol­ly­wood,” the glit­ter­ing an­nual Mother’s Choice ball drew a le­gion of Hong Kong’s chil­dren’s rights ad­vo­cates to the JW Mar­riott. The night cel­e­brated Hol­ly­wood for shin­ing a spotlight on the many crit­i­cal is­sues that Mother’s Choice deals with ev­ery day. A record-break­ing HK$19.2 mil­lion was raised through silent and live auc­tions to fund the much-needed ser­vices of the or­gan­i­sa­tion. The CEO of Mother’s Choice, Alia Eyres, said, “At Mother’s Choice, we are of­ten told that many of our cases are hope­less. But I be­lieve that we can have hope, es­pe­cially when change-mak­ers like those at our gala din­ner are will­ing to join hands with us to trans­form lives and give hope to our city.” In at­ten­dance were many fa­mil­iar faces that have been long-time Mother’s Choice sup­port­ers, in­clud­ing Purviz Shroff, Max and Monique Burger, Harry and In­dra Banga, and Phyl­lis Mar­wah, the or­gan­i­sa­tion’s co-founder.
