Oxford & Cambridge Society of Hong Kong - Oxford & Cambridge Varsity Ball 2015
On 10 October, we - The Oxford & Cambridge Society of Hong Kong - held our traditional Oxford & Cambridge Varsity Ball 2015.
The ball is a biennial fund-raising event which is organised to help provide scholarship grants in support of meaningful student projects in developing regions around the world for the benefit of needy communities.
Among the latest projects supported by the scheme in 2014/15 were an alumnus’s trip to Uganda to work with children affected by AIDS and an alumna’s six-week geology research project in Northern Italy.
Under the Shakespearean theme of 'A Midsummer Night's Dream', the ball was met with overwhelming enthusiasm this year and attended by more than 500 alumni and their guests.
Also in attendance as the Guest of Honour was Ms. Caroline Wilson, British Consul General to Hong Kong and Macao, who gave a speech and led the Loyal Toasts.
It was a night of revelry, with live music, performance of Shakespeare's play, live painting, an auction, raffle prizes, followed by dancing until early morning - all in the Oxbridge fashion.
