A MESSAGE FROM OUR CO-CHAIRS
"It is with deep regret that the committee organising the Hong Kong Arbitration Charity Ball has decided to postpone the Ball to 2021. It has made this choice due to the continued impact of COVID-19 and the associated social distancing measures which may still be in force at the time of the ball.
We would like to thank all our sponsors who supported HKACB during these times of uncertainty.
Although we will miss this opportunity to see so many friendly faces, we don’t want to give up on the two charities that were going to benefit from this year’s fundraising, namely the Centre for Refugees (https://www.christian-action.org.hk/en/hong-kong/humanitarian-social-services/refugees and Pro Bono HK (https://www.probono.org.hk).
Both charities have lost funding due to the Covid-19 crisis and the slow down of the economy. Moreover the Centre for Refugees has suffered a fire a few days ago and will remain closed until they have enough funding to rebuild their premises.
This is why HKACB has decided to make a donation to them regardless of the cancellation of the ball.
Some of our sponsors and guests have already confirmed that they will support this initiative by making a donation to HKACB and we hope to receive more by the end of October when we will make the official donation.
If you or your firm is interested in making a donation, please get in touch with Lucille Kante at email@example.com. We will receive donations until 16 October 2020.
We look forward to welcoming you again in 2021."

ABOUT THE HKACB /
The Hong Kong Arbitration Charity Ball (HKACB) is held annually to raise funds to support local Hong Kong charities and assist in the development of arbitration across Asia.
While we are aware that this year is challenging for most of us on many levels, we also know that charities in Hong Kong struggle even more now with less resources and more people in need for their help. This is why we are making a point to raise as much money as possible to support two charities who do fantastic work in Hong Kong, namely the Centre for Refugees and the Pro Bono HK.
Join us as we escape reality for a few hours and take you on a Casino night alongside the leading minds of the international arbitration community with fantastic entertainment and engaging fundraising.
Finally, we would like to take this opportunity to thank our two main sponsors, Alvarez & Marsal and BRG for their continuous support to HKACB!
We look forward to welcoming you to this 8th edition of the Hong Kong Arbitration Charity Ball!
