To celebrate the Museum Society’s silver anniversary, a special gala dinner “Sparkling at 25” will be held on Saturday, 23 March 2013 at the University’s historic Loke Yew Hall. The evening promises to be filled with fun and fellowship, sumptuous cuisine and wine, joyous entertainments, fabulous auction items and lucky draw prizes. It is a perfect time to gather with members and friends, and a good time to reflect – on the Society’s past achievements, present standing, and future directions.
The Museum Society holds strong our mission as we enter the next twenty-five years. With UMAG’s new management and expansion plan, there is much that we can contribute to help it become a significant place on the world map of showcasing the culture of “East meets West”, “antiquity meets modernity”, mirroring the true image of our University and our city. The Museum Society also continues to pledge extended support to students through scholarship programmes, and to promote understanding and appreciation of art and culture through outreach community programmes.
The proceeds raised from generous sponsorships and donations for the gala dinner and auctions will enable us to support important initiatives. Highlights from the live and silent auctions include paintings and sculptures from Jao Tsung-I, Liu Guosong, Li Shuang and Norman Ko; jewelleries from David Yurman, Kai-yin Lo and Etcetera Ltd; textiles and antiques; wine and travel packages; fashion and luxury goods. For a complete list, please visit our website www.hkums.com. Everyone is welcome to participate in the live and silent auctions through absentee bids.
The Executive Committee wishes to express heartfelt thanks for all the support from members and friends, UMAG’s staff, University’s faculty and students.
Come; let’s sparkle together in a life of joy – with art, friendship and philanthropy!
