Together for a Cure

Celebrities and socialites came together to raise HK$3.5 million for AIDS research at the amfAR Gala Hong Kong. Hosted at Shaw Studio on March 26, fashion designer Kenneth Cole, who’s also the chairman of the board of the charity, hosted the evening along with international stars Naomi Campbell and Charlize Theron. Closer to home, Pansy Ho was honoured on the event for her commitment to the fight against AIDS.


Top Honours

The art world’s la crème de la crème gathered at the JW Marriot hotel on March 23 for the 2017 Asia Arts Awards. Hosted by Asia Society, the evening honoured Ho Chi Fun, Kimsooja, Rashid Rana and Hiroshi Sujimoto – despite coming from varied cultural backgrounds, they’re united by a singular passion for the arts, and vision to bring people a little closer to themselves and the world around them. A benefit auction including the works of Cai Guo-qiang, Yoshitmoto Nara and Xu Bing rounded out the evening.
