Over 360 guests gathered at the Island Shangri-La for the annual Hong Kong Ballet Guild’s annual holiday fundraiser, The Nutcracker Benefit and Connie Wei-Yang and Liana Yung-Yeung were co-chairs of this year’s benefit. Aside from the sumptuous meal and the Christmas-themed activities, a highlight of the afternoon was the entertainment specifically the ballet performance by a group of children of an extract from Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker. A portion of the proceeds raised will directly benefit the Company’s Dancers’ Sponsorship Fund in order for the Hong Kong Ballet’s dancers to receive regular physiotherapy sessions, new pointe shoes and artistic exchanges to further their education, experience and training.
