AmCham philanthropists gathered on November 9 at Crown Wine Cellars for the annual Charitable Foundation Dinner. In addition to the wine auction, AmCham staff teamed up with Chairman Jack Lange and gave a music performance throughout the night and raised HK$80,000. Including donations for the dinner, wine and additional cash donations from non-participating Past Chairmen, AmCham raised HK$280,000 in total for the Foundation this year.
On this beautiful evening, Charitable Foundation Chairman Walter Dias announced that the 2018 Ira Dan Kaye Community Services Award goes to Ms. Noel Lam, Vice Chairman of LoveXpress, recognizing her dedication to the community.
Special acknowledgments are given to AmCham past chairman Jim Thompson for providing the exclusive venue and 4-course dinner for all guests; as well as Mr Patrick Wu for his wine donation. Also to BB Jazz Lounge, The Murray, The Peninsula Hong Kong, The Peninsula Beijing and United Airlines for supporting the Charitable Foundation as the evening’s lucky draw sponsors.
