DI­A­MONDS ARE FOR­EVER

Hong Kong Tatler - - Upfront -

The Di­a­mond Award, which ac­knowl­edges an in­di­vid­ual’s out­stand­ing con­tri­bu­tion to so­ci­ety and was spon­sored by Vacheron Con­stantin, went to Ron­ald Ar­culli, a se­nior part­ner of King & Wood Mallesons, chair­man of FWD Group and vicechair­man of the West Kowloon Cul­tural Dis­trict Author­ity. The cli­max of Ron­ald’s speech, in which he thanked his wife, Jo­hanna, and five chil­dren, came when he urged the younger mem­bers of the au­di­ence to take re­spon­si­bil­ity for shap­ing the fu­ture of Hong Kong ahead of the 20th an­niver­sary of the han­dover. Each year, the Di­a­mond Award re­cip­i­ent nom­i­nates a char­ity to re­ceive a HK$100,000 do­na­tion from Hong Kong Tatler. Ron­ald nom­i­nated the Hong Chi As­so­ci­a­tion, which helps chil­dren suf­fer­ing from in­tel­lec­tual dis­abil­i­ties. Ron­ald also re­ceived an au­to­graphed copy of a cof­fee ta­ble book by Steve Mccurry, who was on stage to present him with the gift.
