JAEGER-LECOULTRE HIGH PERFORMANCE
The Society for the Academy of the Performing Arts and Jaeger-LeCoultre came together for the annual fundraising ball of the Hong Kong Academy of Performing Arts, themed Art Deco Dance. It’s the watchmaker’s second year as sponsor and it has committed to a third. The event supports the Academy’s scholarship program and featured a charity auction of eight precious items donated by generous sponsors. Students, alumni and celebrities took to the stage throughout the night. Among the highlights were an orchestral rendition of Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue, a black-and-white silent movie, stunning vocal performances and appearances by Daniel Chan, Emily Chang, Laura Cheung, Charmaine Ho, Sabrina Ho, Wendy Yu and Mandy Yu. The guest of honor was Regina Leung, wife of the HKSAR’s Chief Executive and honorary patron of the society.
