Hong Kong Tatler Society - - Best Of Life -

Lo­cal phi­lan­thropist Cathy Lee and Amer­i­can pop artist Brian Don­nelly, bet­ter known by his pro­fes­sional name, Kaws, were hon­oured at the an­nual gala din­ner of the in­ter­na­tional Foun­da­tion for Aids Re­search, Am­far, for their con­tri­bu­tions to the fight against Aids and the stigma sur­round­ing it. Malaysian ac­tress Michelle Yeoh, Aus­tralian ac­tor Liam Hemsworth and Amer­i­can artist Jeff Koons were just a few of the celebrity guests in at­ten­dance at the glam­orous Shaw Stu­dios event. There were silent and live auc­tions dur­ing the evening, with Swiss art auc­tion­eer and col­lec­tor Si­mon de Pury wield­ing the ham­mer. More than US$3.5 mil­lion was raised to fund Am­far’s re­search pro­grammes. Two of the many high points were per­for­mances by pop stars Kylie Minogue and Tove Lo, who had guests head­ing for the dance­floor and stay­ing there well into the early hours.
