Grad­u­ates of some of the world’s most pres­ti­gious uni­ver­si­ties pre­pare to party at the an­nual Ivy Ball

Jointly or­gan­ised by the lo­cal alumni as­so­ci­a­tions of Brown, Columbia, Cor­nell, Dart­mouth, Har­vard, the Univer­sity of Penn­syl­va­nia, Prince­ton, Yale and the Mas­sachusetts In­sti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy, this year’s Ivy Ball is the 27th in­stal­ment since the event’s in­cep­tion in 1989. This year’s theme, “Ivy Galaxy,” evokes the realms of outer space, with blast-off tak­ing place on June 4 at the Hong Kong Con­ven­tion and Ex­hi­bi­tion Cen­tre. With more than 800 peo­ple sched­uled to at­tend, it’s set to be the big­gest Ivy Ball yet. The event will be fol­lowed by a lively af­ter­party at the Bun­ga­low night­club in Cen­tral. “The Ivy Ball is the only time of the year when the alumni of all the Ivy League schools and MIT can come to­gether along with their friends to rem­i­nisce and have fun,” this year’s ball co-chair­man, Alexan­der Ting, said.

ALL THAT GLIT­TERS The theme of the Ivy Ball last year was the ex­cit­ing cel­e­bra­tions of Mardi Gras
