BRING ME A BOOK HONG KONG GALA DIN­NER

Spirit of Giv­ing

Hong Kong Tatler - - Faces Soiree -

The foyer of the Con­ven­tion and Ex­hi­bi­tion Cen­tre was a sea of gold, glit­ter and green for Bring Me A Book Hong Kong’s tenth an­niver­sary gala din­ner. The theme for the evening was “Our Giv­ing Tree,” in­spired by the pop­u­lar chil­dren’s book The Giv­ing Tree by Shel Sil­ver­stein. Em­cees Kevin Lam and San­dra Ng kicked off pro­ceed­ings with a wel­com­ing ad­dress, which was fol­lowed by a shadow dance per­for­mance by El Gamma Penum­bra, the Filipino group who won the first sea­son of Asia’s Got Tal­ent. Af­ter­wards, Peggy Yeoh-lee and Jac­que­line Sun ad­dressed the gather­ing. The live auc­tion proved to be a high­light of the din­ner. A few lots sold well above their es­ti­mates, in­clud­ing a L’heure du Dia­mant watch by Chopard that sold for dou­ble its val­u­a­tion, and a trip to next year’s Cannes Film Fes­ti­val with Chopard, which had two ta­bles locked in a bid­ding war, much to every­one’s de­light.
