Power Lunch


Hong Kong Tatler - - Faces -

The hall of the Asia So­ci­ety filled with op­ti­mistic chat­ter as guests gath­ered for the third an­nual Women of Hope Awards lun­cheon, which raises funds for the Hong Kong Ad­ven­tist Hospi­tal Foun­da­tion’s Can­cer Fund. Foun­da­tion chair­woman Jo Soo-tang kicked off pro­ceed­ings with a wel­com­ing ad­dress in which she thanked the guests for their sup­port. Sharie Ross-tse then gave a short in­spi­ra­tional speech, shar­ing the story of her own ex­pe­ri­ence with can­cer. She urged guests to have reg­u­lar check-ups and to help those in need. The high­light of the event was the pre­sen­ta­tion of awards to nine women in recog­ni­tion of their ef­forts in a range of dif­fer­ent fields. How­ever, it was the tes­ti­mo­ni­als that tugged strong­est on ev­ery­one’s heart strings and left many guests teary-eyed, with seven-year-old leukaemia sur­vivor Luke Inkin and Bonita Che­ung shar­ing their sto­ries of bat­tling can­cer.
