AM­FAR GALA DIN­NER

A Night to Re­mem­ber

Hong Kong Tatler - - Soiree -

The an­nual gala din­ner for am­far (the Foun­da­tion for Aids Re­search) has quickly be­come one of the most glam­orous par­ties on Hong Kong’s so­cial cal­en­dar. For this year’s din­ner at Shaw Stu­dios, Hol­ly­wood stars in­clud­ing Adrien Brody and Uma Thur­man rubbed shoul­ders with the likes of Vic­to­ria Beck­ham and su­per­model Karolina Kurková.

Cel­e­bra­tions got un­der­way with a speech by the char­ity’s chair­man of the board, renowned fash­ion de­signer Ken­neth Cole, who re­flected on the or­gan­i­sa­tion’s suc­cesses to date.

One of the evening’s high­lights came as Thur­man warmly em­braced Beck­ham on stage be­fore pre­sent­ing her with the Award for Courage, recog­nis­ing the de­signer’s work as a UNAIDS Good­will Am­bas­sador.
