Hong Kong Arbitration Charity Ball
31 October 2018 | 18:30 - 22:30

Overview

The Hong Kong Arbitration Charity Ball (HKACB) is held annually to raise funds to support local Hong Kong charities and assist in the development of arbitration across Asia.

The 2018 edition of the Hong Kong Arbitration Charity Ball will feature a few new changes.

Firstly, this year you will enjoy Champagne with a view thanks to the breath-taking glass-wall of the Renaissance Hotel's ball room overlooking Victoria Harbour.

Secondly, to make this night memorable, we have decided to opt for an elegant and fun theme for the evening. You are kindly invited to join us at the Electric Masquerade ball. Please feel free to join in and come with your most exquisite mask or buy one at the event (limited numbers available). As we received extremely positive feedbacks on last year's entertainment, we decided to expand in 2018. We have brought on board the creators of 'The Fiasco' to design a unique illuminated show, that will bring entertainment and music to our proceedings.

Thirdly, with new partner Givergy, we will be updating this year's fundraising through the use of technology and the addition of a silent auction that will be open and available online one week before the actual event to give you more time to go through the items and submit your bid. With the introduction of touchpads and multiple screens, joining in with the fundraising could not be easier and is all at your fingertips.

Finally, thanks to sponsors BRG, the official HKACB After Party returns for 2018 with a bigger venue, free flow drinks and music to allow you to enjoy the rest of the evening with friends and colleagues.

Local Charities

Each year the HKACB supports two local charities. The lead charity receives the highest level of funding while the secondary charity receives a second injection of support having previously been a lead charity. You can find more about the charities we are supporting and the great work they do below.

Mother's Choice is a local charity serving the many children without families and pregnant teenagers in Hong Kong. Mother's Choice's ambition is to guarantee every child's right to live in a safe and loving family. They achieve this by collaborating with the local community to give hope and change the life stories of vulnerable girls and babies.

Within their 30 years of existence, Mother's Choice helped - among others - 860 children and youth through foster care, over 2,000 babies and children in their Child Care Home and 53,000 pregnant girls by providing counseling, a safe place to live, pre-natal support etc. Mother's Choice has also found families for 250 children with special needs and supported 215 families through the local adoption journey.

Mother's Choice not only supports a key group of vulnerable people in Hong Kong, they also help create a safe environment for the next generation to grow and live their lives without fearing judgement, persecution and abuse. Most young children who enter into institutional care stay for years, with many leaving the system at the age of 18 without ever knowing the love and support of a family. Children living in institutional care but also teenagers going through pregnancy and family breakdowns often endure a vicious cycle of poverty and instability that is hard to break.

Mother's Choice tries to address these issues through their strong network of 9,000 committed volunteers. Thanks to them, 3.3 millions diapers have been changed and 1.4 million bottle of milk have been distributed since the creation of the Charity.

Mother's Choice strongly contributes to the future of Hong Kong's young generations and for this reason, Mother's Choice has the HKACB committee unanimous support.

You can find out more about Mother's choice on their website: www.motherschoice.org.


HELP for Domestic Helpers was our primary recipient of funding from the HKACB in 2017. They return this year are our secondary charity.

HELP's mission is to assist foreign domestic workers in Hong Kong in avoiding exploitation and illegal treatment. To do this, HELP provides free advice and assistance on employment, immigration and human rights issues to domestic workers, irrespective of race, nationality, religion, sexual orientation or gender.

You can find out more about HELP on their website: www.helpfordomesticworkers.org.
