The Year of the Pig got off to an excellent start at the Chamber’s annual spring dinner with a delightful lion dance performed by the Bank of China Lion Dance Team. Chamber Chairman Aron Harilela was joined by officiating guests to carry out the lion eye-dotting ceremony to mark the beginning of the evening’s festivities.
During the dinner in Maxim’s Palace City Hall, more than 500 members were treated to a Cantonese opera performance from the Hong Kong Children and Juvenile Chinese Opera Troupe, a hip-hop display from the Cool Kids Dance Academy, and several popular tunes from singer Wong Yik.
Participants also enjoyed the lucky draw with winners taking home a wide range of prizes including luxury hotel stays and business class flights. And with a generous selection of table prizes as well, no-one went home empty-handed.
Chamber Chairman Aron Harilela thanked the sponsors of the event and prizes who helped make the dinner such a fun evening, and wished everyone health, happiness and prosperity in the year ahead.
The event sponsors included Harilela Hotels, Faro Recruitment (Hong Kong), Galaxy Fire Services, NRW.INVEST, Sino Land, Tradewind International Factoring and Winson Holdings Hong Kong.
