Some 420 guests enjoyed a wonderful evening at the 43rd HKUEAA Annual Dinner and Dance (ADD), themed “The Circus”, on 19 January 2019 at Kowloon Shangri-La, Hong Kong.
It was our honor to have Ir Dr Hon LO Wai Kwok, SBS, MH, JP (Member of the Legislative Council of HKSAR), to be our Guest of Honor at this grand occasion. We were also privileged to have the company of Mrs Selina Chow, Ir Liu Chun San, JP (the Under Secretary for Development), Professor Christopher Chao (the Dean of Faculty of Engineering, HKU) and other alumni, friends and students joining the event.
The speeches given by Ir Luk Wai Hung, JP (the President of HKUEAA), Ir Choi Wai Man, Raymond (The Chairman of Event Organising Committee), Dr Hon Lo Wai Kwok and Professor Christopher Chao marked the fabulous opening of the ADD. These were followed by Ir C.K. Mak’s sharing of the achievements and contribution by our Honorary Life President, the late Dr Chow Ming-kuen Joseph. To commemorate this, the HKUEAA Dr Chow Ming-kuen Joseph Memorial Learning Fund was established with contributions for around $3 million received.
An interactive magic show by Avon Lee and singing performance by Ms. Sara Lee brought the atmosphere of the night to a climax. As for previous years, dancing by guests made this night a memorable occasion for everyone.
We would like to take this opportunity to express our heartfelt gratitude to the old and new friends and guests for their enthusiastic participation, to sponsors for their generous donations, and to the volunteers for their dedicated contributions to make the event possible. We look forward to welcoming you in the ADD in 2020!
