Ira Dan Kaye Community Service Award
Introduced in 1986, this annual award recognizes individuals who have performed outstanding service to the Hong Kong community on a voluntary basis. Recipients of the award receive a check for HK$30,000 for a charity of his/her choice and an engraved silver plate. The award was renamed the Ira Dan Kaye Community Service Award to pay special tribute to our past chairman who passed away on June 6, 1999.
In 2022, we presented the Ira Dan Kaye Community Award to Doris Leung, founder of Diamond Cab Foundation, to acknowledge her dedication and contribution to the Community. Diamond Cab is the first wheelchair-accessible taxi service in Hong Kong since 2011. In 2020, Doris kicked off the Community Ride project for underprivileged passengers, and they have accomplished over 500 free rides for the elders in need.
