WHAT The Pink Ball WHEN Oc­to­ber 27, 2018 WHERE Grand Hy­att

Hong Kong Tatler Society - - Best Of Life -

It was an evening of classy dance moves and warm gen­eros­ity at the 11th an­nual Pink Ball. Af­ter wel­com­ing friends, fam­ily and sup­port­ers to the Grand Hy­att, Ava Kwong, chair­man of the Hong Kong Hered­i­tary Breast Can­cer Fam­ily Reg­istry, spoke of the work car­ried out by the reg­istry so far but fo­cused mostly on the fu­ture, in keep­ing with the theme of the ball, re­nais­sance, as the reg­istry moves into its sec­ond decade. As din­ers took their seats, spe­cial guests took a spin around the dance­floor ac­com­pa­nied by their pro­fes­sional dance part­ners and a live band. A high­light of the ball is al­ways the char­ity dance per­for­mance, and this year was no ex­cep­tion. Lucy Wang stole the show. A can­cer sur­vivor her­self, it took a few years to coax her to take cen­tre stage, though she needn’t have wor­ried as her vi­va­cious rou­tine had ev­ery­one on their feet for a stand­ing ova­tion. Gen­er­ous do­na­tions were pledged dur­ing the silent auc­tion, with all funds raised on the night go­ing to­wards pro­vid­ing free ge­netic screen­ing and con­sul­ta­tions for un­der­priv­i­leged fam­i­lies at risk of breast, ovar­ian and prostate can­cer.
