Transat­lantica was the theme of the Youth Di­a­betes Ac­tion (YDA) din­ner, which was held at the Kowloon In­ter­na­tional Trade & Ex­hi­bi­tion Cen­tre. From the minia­ture boat fig­urines that dec­o­rated the cen­tre­pieces on all the ta­bles, to the choco­late an­chors and the staff dressed in marine uni­forms, ev­ery­thing was tied into the evening’s nau­ti­cal theme and no de­tail was over­looked, thanks to event de­signer Bergé Stu­dio. YDA chair­woman emer­i­tus Joanna Ho­tung, ac­com­pa­nied by a group of chil­dren who have ben­e­fited from the or­gan­i­sa­tion’s ser­vices, ad­dressed the au­di­ence about the daily hard­ships faced by chil­dren with type 1 di­a­betes. She re­ceived a rous­ing round of ap­plause when she out­lined the achieve­ments of the YDA over the pre­ced­ing year, and an­other for the goals set for the com­ing months. Live and silent auc­tions raised more than HK$2 mil­lion for the YDA’S work. The evening’s spon­sors in­cluded Ac­cel­era Yacht, Hopewell Hold­ings, and Purviz and Rusy Shroff.
