The idea of raising funds by putting on casual wear was originated from the United States and introduced in Hong Kong in 1993. Since then it has become popular with more and more participants every year.

To make it more fun, different event theme will be adopted and various activities will be held every year. The theme for this year is WEAR TO GO - simple and relaxing to dress casual for a worthy cause.

Dress casual is a good deed for the day. Let’s walk together with the beneficiaries!

How the donations are used

Each year, the Chest organises fund-raising events to benefit over 160 member social welfare agencies that reach out to more than 2.5 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 administrative expenses come from a subsidised grant from our partner-in-charity, The Hong Kong Jockey Club, and return from prudent investment. 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.
