October 2017 Newsletter


Posted on 26 October, 2017

Dear KLF Supporters and Friends:

Last week we hosted our annual Hong Kong “Cocktails for a Cause” event at Mezcalito and thanks to you all we were able to raise over HK$ 125,000 on the night to support the Karen Leung Foundation’s mission and programs. 

The bartending competition saw eight teams compete this year and it was a lot of fun for the teams and their supporters/patrons. The Ernst & Young Team (the mad scientists in white lab coats) took home the prize for the top-grossing bartending team, and the Citco Team (the native Indians who decorated their headpieces with heart cards to honour cancer survivors) won the prize for the best-dressed team. 



We invite you to check out our updated KLF Facebook page to view all the pictures from the evening. Raffle prize winners have also been posted on our website.  Winners will have until November 10 to collect their prizes from KLF’s office in Central. Please check our website or social media channels to see if you are one of our lucky winners!

All proceeds from the night will benefit our vaccination and screening initiatives for underprivileged girls and women in Hong Kong.

Thank you for your support, and see you next year!

Your KLF Team

100WF Hong Kong Gala announces new event location: Mandarin Oriental 

100 Women in Finance, who named KLF as their 2017 beneficiary charity, announced that their 2017 Hong Kong Gala dinner planned for Thursday November 16 will be moved to the Mandarin Oriental Hotel. The change comes off the back of strong demand from industry practitioners wanting to attend and support 100WF and the KLF mission to saves lives by reducing the impact of gynaecological cancer in Hong Kong.

Still looking to secure a table or ticket? A small number of Gala seats are still available. For additional information, you may contact the 100WF Gala Committee.
