Special thanks to our Sponsors, donors and supporters for their amazing generosity.
The evening included Brazilian cuisine, a performance by members of Capoeira Brazil Hong Kong, which included Capoeira martial arts, drumming and the samba.
We are grateful to vocalist Yana Fortep, The Sunbeam Sisters, and Andy Bautista’s band, for their wonderful performances. We are also grateful to our auctioneer Craig Shute, and our MC, Colin Bennett for helping the evening to go so well.
Great Gatsby Night
Our 2014 Gala Fundraiser took place on Saturday, November 15th at the Hong Kong Bankers Club in Central. The theme of the evening was The Great Gatsby, and our guests joined in the spirit of the glitz and glamour of the roaring 1920’s.
The evening included live music of the era played by Andy Bautista’s Band, while our vocalist Sonya Gerber gave a wonderful performance accompanied by the band. We also had a best-dressed competition, raffle and auction.
Another highlight of the evening was a monologue from F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic tale, vibrantly delivered by Stephen Bolton, and immediately followed by our wonderful volunteer Sunbeam dancers led by Elissa Hinson who performed a lively rendition of the Charleston.
Charles Kelly did a great job as our MC, while our auctioneer Craig Shute delivered an exciting auction. We raised over HK$900,000 for our children, thanks to the generosity of our supporters.
A Night in New Orleans
Sunbeam's 2013 Gala Fundraiser, A Night in New Orleans, was a fun, colourful, high-energy event.
Colin Jesse once again did a great job as our MC, while live jazz music was provided by Andy's Bautista's Dixie Band and the Cheesy Trio. Meanwhile, surprise magician wowed the crowd with an array of illusions.
The Cajun food was enjoyed by all, and the real stars were our Mardi Gras Parade girls, who managed to get most guests onto their feet for a conga line and dancing.
Hong Kong Hardwood Classic
It was a first for Hong Kong’s booming real estate industry and a first for Sunbeam – an intra-industry basketball tournament that sought to raise money for everyone’s favourite organisation in Baiwan.
In the November 2012 event, eight teams, four developers and four property consultants, vied for bragging rights amongst property professionals to win the first annual Hardwood Classic.
With over 100 participants and volunteers, the tournament was a resounding success, and will undoubtedly continue in the coming years. The field included teams from Hong Kong Land,Swire, Sino, Hysan, Jones Lang La Salle, Colliers, Savills, and CBRE.
When it was all said and done, Sino took home the coveted “Chopping Block” trophy and will be the first to add its name to the list as Hardwood Classic Champion.
Thanks again to all of the participants, and most importantly, the volunteers who spent the entire day to ensure that the event went off without a hitch!
Music in the Air
Our 2012 Gala Fundraiser, Music in the Air, was a big success. Guests, volunteers and friends enjoyed a music-filled evening in the magical setting of The Pavilion, high up on the 27th floor of The Crowne Plaza Hotel.
Everyone enjoyed a barbecue buffet dinner, while bubbles and wine flowed freely courtesy of Leung Yick Company Ltd. We also held an auction of fine wines donated by Marguerite Lee, in loving memory of her late husband, Dr. Henry Lee, from his collection.
Colin Jesse was our MC and auctioneer for the evening, and a lucky draw determined the night's raffle winners. Andy Bautista and his band played during the evening, and we were also entertained by The Sunbeam Sisters, The Cheesy Trio, Robert Vicencio and Anders Nellson, who made a surprise guest appearance, much to the enjoyment of the crowd.
