AmCham has raised more than HK$200,000 (a record amount since 2012) at the Charitable Foundation Dinner, an annual occasion to raise funds for the underprivileged. The amount raised from the dinner, pledges and a wine auction throughout the evening will go directly to the Foundation supporting local smaller and lesser-known charities.
This year, following remarks by Foundation Chairman Peter Levesque, AmCham’s Government Relations & Public Affairs (GRPA) Director Agnes Tsang and Manager Queenie Tsui appeared as a duo for their debut saxophone and piano performance of American jazz, giving a delightful surprise to those in attendance.
AmCham wishes to express tremendous gratitude for the support of James E. Thompson and Crown Wine Cellars’ sponsorship of a four-course dinner with wine pairing for six consecutive years. Special acknowledgements go to The Peninsula Boutique, The Peninsula Beijing, Ritz Carlton and United Airlines for the lucky draw, with big thanks to Tom Gorman, Steve DeKrey, Patrick Wu and all supporters for making this evening successful.
