For Immediate Release
Hong Kong General Chamber of Commerce (HKGCC) today held a launch ceremony for the “Hong Kong We Can Do It! Lucky Draw,” offering prizes over seven rounds of lucky draws worth over $43 million. Starting 2 July, vaccinated Hong Kong residents can register for the first round of lucky draws which will take place between July and September, with more than 6,000 individual winners.
“The people of Hong Kong have demonstrated strength and determination in helping keep the COVID-19 virus at bay over the past 18 months,” said HKGCC Chairman Peter Wong. “We are now at the point where citizens need to take the next step of getting vaccinated if we are to reach our collective goal. Only then will we able to adapt and hopefully eventually remove the travel and social-distancing restrictions.”
Starting 2 July, people will be able to register for the draw at www.hkgccluckydraw.com. The lucky draw is open to anyone over the age of 18 who has received two COVID-19 vaccinations in Hong Kong and holds a valid HKID card.
“We are very grateful to our member companies who have sponsored this range of prizes to boost the city’s vaccination rate and help protect Hong Kong people. This initiative is vital to enabling our city to get back to normal,” Wong added.
The prizes on offer include three Mercedes Benz C-Class cars, hundreds of shopping vouchers valued at $10,000 each, dining vouchers valued at $5,000 each, as well as staycations from Jardine Matheson Group. There are also 500 MTR Annual Passes worth an estimated $20,000 each, as well as 500 shopping vouchers valued at $10,000 each from Swire Properties. Other prizes include hotel stays in Hong Kong and overseas, Cathay Pacific business class air tickets, as well as thousands of other shopping, dining and cinema coupons and other prizes.
When registering, entrants should enter their full HKID card number and Hong Kong mobile number, and ensure they have had two COVID-19 shots at the time that they register. The seven rounds of draws will take place on: 22 July, 5 August, 19 August, 2 September, 16 September, 23 September and 30 September. Each eligible person can submit one entry only into the lucky draw. Those who do not win in any of the first six rounds will automatically be re-entered into subsequent round(s), up to the final round on 30 September.
Entries will be randomly drawn by a specialist computer system and winners will be required to produce their original HKID card and proof of their two vaccinations in Hong Kong before claiming their prize. PwC HK will be performing procedural checks on the key processes and systems controls relating to the lucky draw.
