A KNOCK­OUT NIGHT

Hong Kong Tatler - - Faces Soiree -

“I’m in awe of Nis­sim’s tenac­ity and de­ter­mi­na­tion,” Sharie said af­ter her hus­band’s bout. “When peo­ple said it was im­pos­si­ble to box at his age [56], he made it hap­pen in aid of the Sports for Hope Foun­da­tion.”

Health and fit­ness was the re­cur­ring theme of the night. The lots up for sale in the live auc­tion—whose pro­ceeds went to the Sports for Hope Foun­da­tion—in­cluded a 12-week body trans­for­ma­tion pack­age at per­sonal train­ing gym Ul­ti­mate Per­for­mance, and a Six Na­tions shirt signed by the English rugby team. Sabrina Fung-lam snapped up the lat­ter, pos­si­bly as a gift for hus­band Kevin. Marie- Chris­tine Lee-louey, who founded the Sports for Hope Foun­da­tion in 2008, took to the stage at the end of the evening to thank ev­ery­one for their sup­port. The char­i­ta­ble foun­da­tion helps un­der­priv­i­leged chil­dren to be­come in­volved in var­i­ous sports to un­earth their po­ten­tial, un­leash­ing the in­ner power of the in­di­vid­ual.
