ChoiTechAndLaw Professional Corporation, the intellectual property law firm of one of our CMBG Board Directors, Amelia Choi, is a proud Bronze Sponsor of the Canada-Hong Kong Week (6/24/2017 to 6/30/2017). This is a special week of events, exhibits, and Gala to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the establishment of the HKSAR Government and the 150th Anniversary of the Confederation of Canada.
This week-long celebration was organized by the CHKA-Toronto. The week ended with a remarkable Closing Ceremony Gala held at the Premier Banquet and Convention Center on June 30, 2017. Consul General He Wei from the Consulate of the P.R.C. in Toronto, and representatives from all levels of the Canadian government gave congratulatory speeches at the Gala. Over a thousand guests, including prominent leaders from the community, business, artistic, and professional fields were there, celebrating and enjoying the Chinese cuisine and the many entertainment and educational programs that evening. Amongst our special guests at the Closing Ceremony Gala were: Councillor Alan Ho of the City of Markham (a HK fashion expert, who formerly taught at the HK Polytechnic University, shared with us about the evolution of fashion and clothing development in HK), Mr. Dan Liu (a renowned fashion designer who led his models in a fashion show that evening to showcase his designs that were recently featured at the NY Fashion Week), Mr. William So Wing Hong (a famous HK singer who performed a number of his most well-known songs), and several others. There were a number of other musical and dance performances, including an indigenous drumming performance. Fund-raising was also held at the Gala for the establishment of a scholarship fund for local post-secondary students who would like to engage in Canada-HK studies.
Our CMBG Board Directors, Will Sung, Philip Ho, and Amelia Choi, were amongst the 1000+ guests who attended this very memorable Gala that evening.
