A record HK$7.8 mil­lion was raised at this year’s Para Site fundrais­ing din­ner, which took place at Maxim’s Palace City Hall and was at­tended by more than 260 fa­mil­iar faces from the arts, cul­ture and creative scenes. The evening’s theme was Can­topop— ev­i­dent from the vin­tage cas­sette tapes that took the place of ta­ble cards. Face masks of Can­topop stars such as Aaron Kwok, Jacky Che­ung, Sandy Lam and Leon Lai as­signed to guests dou­bled as pad­dles dur­ing the live auc­tion. The ham­mer came down on 88 art­works do­nated by artists from around the world, in­clud­ing Chi­nese con­tem­po­rary artist Yang Jiechang, Amer­i­can painter Sarah Mor­ris, and the late Amer­i­can artist Terry Ad­kins. All funds raised on the night will go to the out­reach pro­grammes run by the con­tem­po­rary art cen­tre.
