Classic beats and unbeatable style from the golden era of Motown set the tone for a 50th birthday bash to remember
More than 500 members and their guests gathered at the Ocean Park Marriott Hotel on Saturday night for the 2019 Ball ... which this year also marks the chamber's 50th anniversary.
The annual ball is one of Hong Kong's longest-lasting and most vibrant social events. But it's not all about fun and games: Partygoers dug deep into their pocketbooks to bid for items in the charity auction. Just over HK$900,000 in bids yielded a HK$324,943 profit for AmCham's designated causes.
The AmCham annual ball is one of Hong Kong's most enduring social events. After 49 iterations, the 2019 party shows no signs of a return to the more sedate affair of the inaugural 1970 bash.
