The 2013 HK Arbitration Charity Ball
The 2013 Ball was held at the Conrad Hotel on 17th October 2013.
In the second year, 80% of the monies raised at the 2013 HK Arbitration Charity Ball was donated to the Society for Community Organisation (SoCO). In Hong Kong there are about 100,000 single elderly people, low-income families, new immigrants, poor children and people suffering from mental and physical disabilities that live in inadequate housing, including: cage homes, cubicle apartments and roof-top flats. These people have inadequate food and clothing and live in inadequate accommodation. SoCO individually visits these poor households and follows up on their needs, organizing them to fight for public housing allocation and livelihood protection. 20% was given to the Vis East Moot as an organisation committed to promoting Hong Kong as a leading seat of arbitration.
