HKAHF’S HOPE SHINES THROUGH TEA PARTY FUNDRAISER SUCCESSFULLY KICKED OFF
HKAHF held a HOPE SHINES THROUGH Tea Party today at the Bebegarten Education Centre to raise funds for underprivileged children with cancer and provide timely access to much needed medical help. The event was a huge success that disseminated healthy understanding to parents and children alike on the difficulties that people face in their lives, and to teach their children to be generous with what they have.
Jo Soo-Tang, Chairman of HKAHF commented, “We are very happy with the turnout of the fundraiser. Not only did we raise donations to help people in need, we also had the chance to educate our next generation on the importance of ‘sharing is caring’. We all had a brilliant time and everybody loved the handmade couture tutus which were sold out with proceeds going towards the Foundation.”
Dr Stephen C. K. Law, Chairman of Hong Kong Adventist Hospital Foundation's Cancer Fund and Clinical Director of Hong Kong Adventist Oncology Centre also shared, “MRI and PET/CT scans are important in modern management of children cancers. The former provides fine details of the cancer without involving radiation while the latter provides important information on treatment response that can guide subsequent treatment for maximum efficacy and safety.”
The fundraiser was a star-studded event, with socialite Sharie Ross-Tse hosting the event as emcee, while fashionista Kayla Wong choreographed the kids fashion show, which featured little models wearing bespoke angelic tutus designed by My Little Princess founder Amy Djokovic. Dr Kai Cheong, Resident Doctor at Queen Mary Hospital was also invited to speak about the importance of MRI and PET/CT scans. Also, out in full support were popular actress, yoga therapist and HKAHF BEYOND Co-founder Margaret Chung; Founder of Bebegarten Education Centre Claudine Ying, celebrity couture designer Barney Cheng and entrepreneur Lelia Chow and her daughter Florence Tsai at the event.
Another crowd pleaser was the Mini GIFT OF HOPE sterling silver charm bracelets for kids. These bracelets designed by Janne Poulsen of House of Kamal priced at HK$450 each served as a beautiful inspirational reminder of the duty that we have to each other as fellow human beings to share and help those in need. For those who did not make it to the event, these bracelets are available online at http://www.hkahf.org.hk/product/the-gift-of-mini-hope/ and at House of Kamal’s online store at www.houseofkamal.com .
