Fairy-tale Evening

Hong Kong Tatler - - Faces -

90th “The Never End­ing Story” was the theme of a gala dinner to mark the 90th an­niver­sary of the Hong Kong So­ci­ety for the Pro­tec­tion of Chil­dren. The ball­room at Kitec was trans­formed into a mag­i­cal space cour­tesy of Sil­vio Bergé, giv­ing guests the feel­ing they were part of a fairy tale. The room fell silent when Jac­que­line Chow, chair­woman of the so­ci­ety’s fundrais­ing com­mit­tee, took to the stage to thank those gath­ered for their gen­er­ous sup­port. She was joined by her ball co-chairs, Veron­ica Lee-chou and Karen Chu-ma. The high­light of the evening was the live auc­tion, which raised more than HK$4 mil­lion for the so­ci­ety. Pop­u­lar lots in­cluded an ex­quis­ite im­pe­rial green jadeite, di­a­mond and ruby blos­som ring and an iconic Louis Vuit­ton trunk that could be per­son­alised, with both lots selling for well above their es­ti­mates.
