Report from Fund Raising Committee (2008 – 2010)
Co-Chairmen: Betty Chan, Michelle Chan
With the assistance of all Zonta NT members, the Fund Raising Committee has organized a very meaningful and successful fund raising event on 28 February 2010.
The event included a charity film show featuring “The Echoes of the Rainbow” which has won the Crystal Bear Award for the Best Film at the 2010 Berlin International Film Festival a week before our event. The film was produced by Ms. Cheung Yuen Ting (張婉婷) and directed by Mr. Alex Law (羅啟銳). Through the film, the hardworking and resourceful characteristics of Hong Kong people in the 1960s are portrayed.
At the event, Zonta NT also paid tribute to nine Fondly Recognised Brands by presenting awards to them. The spirit and strengths of Hong Kong have been developed by these brands over the years for greater success. The nine brands cover a wide range of fields. They are Hang Seng Bank, Sincere, Watsons, Chow Sang Sang, Vitasoy, Star Ferry, Lion & Globe, Wai Yuen Tong and HK Philharmonic Orchestra. Through our event, we have also revived the awareness and discussions on the Hong Kong Spirit.
The net funds raised amounted to more than HK$ 1 million (unaudited). All proceeds raised from the event will go towards our Club’s Charitable Trust Fund for various projects.
