The WGAHK Annual Dinner held on the 4th December 2004 highlighted the associationˇ¦s success in building up a network of Warwick graduates in Hong Kong over the past decade. In the elegant setting of the Hong Kong Club, over 130 Warwick alumni and friends gathered together and shared fond memories of their time at Warwick.

The celebration started with a special musical performance by Eric Yuen (BSc Accounting & Finance) and Eric Lee (BSc Computer Science & MSc IT for Manufacture). Blended with a slide show of WGAHK activities in the past 10 years, their performances led us through the history of our alumni association. The performance was followed by speeches by Yvonne Leung, WGAHK Chairman, Professor Stuart Palmer, Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Mr. Jon Baldwin, Registrar. Then a cake-cutting ceremony symbolized the 10th birthday of WGAHK.

 

During the meal, the bingo game raised the atmosphere to a higher level. People were enthusiastic to exchange news with old and new friends, and got their names signed on each of the 16 boxes of a paper card for the game. Halfway through the meal, well-known journalist Tsao Chip (BA English & European Literature) was invited to talk about his student life at Warwick in 1980s. Everyone was interested and listened up. His speech thickened our sense of belongings to the University.

We then moved on to the Warwick souvenirs auction, which was aimed to raise fund for the WGAHK Scholarship. Bidding for each souvenir was intensive. Nancy Chui (BSc Industrial Economics) for the first time played the role as the auctioneer. Her lively personality successfully encouraged people to bid while bringing fun to the crowd. The auction ended with the bid for a Warwick campus painting donated by local painter John Li. After a vigorous competition, Peter Lau (LLB Law) got hold of the painting with a bid of HK$3000. As a result, the auction raised over HK$8000 for the scholarship fund.

 

The auction was followed by the lucky draw. We offered over 80 gifts to all participants of the dinner. Those who bought more raffle tickets had higher chances to win the grand prizes. Another HK$8000 was raised from the sales of raffle tickets and that contributed to the scholarship fund as well.

The dinner ended with applause after Yvonne Li (MA Globalisation & Development), our MC of the evening, presented the first prize to the lucky-draw winner. Despite the tight programme, everyone agreed it was a most enjoyable evening and a great success.
