The Chang­ing Young Lives Foun­da­tion be­stowed its in­au­gu­ral Civic Lead­er­ship Award dur­ing its an­nual Fes­ti­val of Trees lun­cheon at The Con­rad. Eleanor Wong and Ron­nie Cheng were the re­cip­i­ents, hon­oured for their ef­forts in aid­ing the city’s un­der­priv­i­leged chil­dren. The foun­da­tion in­tro­duced the award as a way of en­cour­ag­ing more peo­ple to be­come en­gaged in chil­dren’s causes, es­pe­cially at a time when the youth sui­cide rate in the city is at an all-time high. All pro­ceeds from the lunch, which was co-chaired by Jane Chao-lee, Yvette Ho and Angie Ting, will ben­e­fit the foun­da­tion’s Art to Heart Ex­pres­sive Arts Ther­apy Pro­gramme. The pop­u­lar pro­gramme was in­tro­duced in 2015 and has since helped more than 250 at-risk stu­dents in 30 schools.
