Dr Stanley Ho celebrates 97th birthday with donation by his wife Mrs Lucina Ho and children
The Community Chest sends our warmest wishes to our respected Vice Patron Dr Stanley Ho on the happy occasion of his 97th birthday tomorrow (25 November). The Chest would also like to express our heartfelt thanks to his wife Mrs Lucina Ho and their children – Pansy, Daisy, Maisy, Josie and Lawrence for their generous donation of HK$2 million, keeping up this admirable family tradition of donating to the Chest in celebration of Dr Ho’s birthday. They have set an excellent example of giving for many in Hong Kong – a big thank-you from our over two million beneficiaries to Dr Ho and family!
About The Community Chest of Hong Kong
The Community Chest of Hong Kong was established in 1968 as an independent, non-profit making organisation neither funded nor operated by the Government. Each year, the Chest organises fund-raising events for over 160 member social welfare agencies to provide services to more than two million beneficiaries in Hong Kong in six major areas of services: children & youth, elderly, family & child welfare, medical & health, rehabilitation & aftercare, and community development. The Chest’s administration expenses come from a subsidised grant from our partner-in-charity, The Hong Kong Jockey Club, in addition to income from investments. This allows the Chest to allocate 100% of funds raised to charitable use; this operations model makes the Chest unique among its peers, and helps fulfil its mission to act as trustee of the donors.
