Youth Diabetes Action Fundraising Dinner 2019
King Tut: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh was the theme of this year’s Youth Diabetes Action (YDA) fundraising dinner, which was co-chaired by Joanna Hotung and Melissa Brewster at the Conrad Hotel. The evening started with a cocktail reception in the atrium where guests posed for photos with a replica statue of Tutankhamun and a pair of gold thrones. After the doors to the ballroom opened, guests were mesmerized by how the ballroom had been transformed by Studio Berge—with replica statues of King Tut anchored throughout the space, and projections of Egyptian hieroglyphics along the walls. High points from the evening were the entertainment, which included a musical performance from the Face Productions children’s choir. There was also a silent auction throughout with all funds raised benefitting YDA’s programs, which support individuals and families in Hong Kong that are affected by diabetes.
