The Charity Ball is held annually to raise funds to support local Hong Kong charities and assist in the development of arbitration across Asia.

about

The Hong Kong Arbitration Charity Ball has earned its reputation as a glamorous event featuring fabulous live music, superb food and wine, all presented in one of Hong Kong’s most beautiful and illustrious hotels. The Charity Ball is an opportunity for those in the Arbitration and legal space to get together where everyone has a chance to contribute to an extremely worthwhile cause.

 

 

The Hong Kong Arbitration Charity Ball 

The Hong Kong Arbitration Charity Ball is an initiative by members of Hong Kong’s legal and arbitration community aimed primarily at raising money for local Hong Kong charities and, in small part, to promote Hong Kong as a leading venue for dispute resolution.  The Ball is held during the annual Hong Kong Arbitration Week, which attracts up to 500 lawyers, judges and arbitrators to Hong Kong.  Last year’s Ball attracted over 400 attendees, including senior judges, Law Lords, members of the Legislative Council, members of Hong Kong’s business community, as well as lawyers and arbitrators from around the world.

The Honorary Patron of the Ball is The Hon. Chief Justice Geoffrey MA and the majority of the proceeds from the ball in October 2016 went to MINDSET, a charity which raises awareness and understanding of mental health issues, as well as providing direct assistance to individuals, families and organisations in need of help. While the key objective of the HK Arbitration Charity Ball is to raise money for people in need, it also aims to promote Hong Kong as a leading seat for international arbitration.  As such, 20% of monies raised from the charity ball go towards achieving this goal. In previous years, the funds have been awarded to (i) the Chinese University of Hong Kong to research perceptions about arbitration in Hong Kong and mainland China and what improvements can be made (ii) the Vis East Moot Foundation; (iii) the HKIAC and Arias to set up in Hong Kong [iv] HK45 and the Moot Alumni Association.
