My ​dear Fellow Rotarians,

I hope you all had a marvellous time at ‘ A Touch of Green Charity Ball last Saturday with your families/friends/guests and you were delightfully entertained by the programs, food and drinks we lined up especially for you! Almost every member came except those who are currently working overseas. Even PP David flew back from Brunei just for the Ball. Spare tickets were not available, we are delighted with a sell-out of 420 guests!


The​ ​hot and mesmerizing music entertainment by the magical Blue Note band so kindly recommended and arranged by PP Guy Lesquoy ​got everyone swinging on stage and the dance floor.

​The beautiful and surprising appearance of the eco-friendly Butterfly ​and​ Tree Streetmosphere Walkers caught admiration and wow ​sounds ​from every guest at the packed reception area. Our most thanks to the Venetian Macao ​Resort ​Hotel ​and Convention Centre for such a dazzling display of talent.
All these have enriched and liven up our evening so much that the Blue Note band almost brought the Milan Ballroom ​roof down to the dancing of all especially our visiting Rotarians from Taiwan​ and Hong Kong. The beautiful music of ‘Tacho” and the romantic singing of Macau Elvis added to the evening highlight.

President Kevin and I would like to offer a BIG BIG thank you to all of you for your selfless great support to this annual meaningful and important event of your Club by purchasing ball tickets/tables, buying/selling raffles, corsage, plants and beverages for charity. And for your respect to our ‘ green’ call by appearing with such a creative touch of ‘ green’ like PP Ritchie with a fresh lettuce necklace and PP Choi with a garden hat.

It is with all your valuable support that we have made some fundraising records this Ball which ​we will share once our financials are complete.

Now the success of this Ball would not have been possible without the wonderful and devoted support, hard work and advice from:-

  •  ​My fellow Iron Lady comrades PP​ Fatima, PP ​Stella and ​PP ​Synthia ( my salute to you for managing /covering all the fine details for a most enjoyable Ball !)
  • Our Ball organizing committee:-
    • Our Golden MC pair: Elvo and Aris. You were superb and professional. Beauty and the Handsome of course.
    • Ball Treasurer Perry: he counted all cash proceeds right after the Ball and on Sunday and has the stacks of notes safely banked in today. Super efficient!
    • PP Ip: media publicity​​ and​ reception
    • PN Sam: mobilizing raffle tickets selling teams and his better half Amy who helped at the reception and charity sale
    • Rtn Andy: beautiful production of backdrop and all printed materials. Don’t you like our ‘ Green’ program printed on recycled paper and in such legible big wording?
    • IPP KC: welcoming and taking care of some HK district leaders/officers’ transfer logistics
    • All OC members and PP Florence too for soliciting so many attractive and welcoming lucky draw prizes
  • Fashionista participants: you were awesome and so creative
  • Opening Act participants: what a Percussion group. One of a kind!
  • RAC and UMSU Rotaractors: floor management, happy ladies, raffle, charity sale and fashionista. Well done!

 Of course, my thanks to President Kevin who was a pillar of support to me during the entire Ball preparation. And, most importantly, our dear Rtn Janet who helped open our door to many sponsors as well as donated cash /lucky draw prizes even across the miles! Thank you, Janet.

Please do forgive me if I have missed anyone in my thank you salutation as I am still getting over the exciting fun we had on Saturday.

Thank you once again and let’s look forward to another successful Anniversary Ball in 2016!

Thankfully yours,

Elizabete Fong​
