The HKBU ‧ Tibet 5100 Golf Day 2019 was held with great success on 8 November 2019 at the Eden Course of The Hong Kong Golf Club in Fanling. It attracted over 200 participants including 140 golf-lovers who formed 35 teams to take part in the tournament. Including the income from the charity auction of fine red wines, the event successfully raised HK$2.18 million in support of the University’s Institutional Strategic Plan 2018-2028. As one of the major fundraising and fellowship events, the annual Golf Day has raised an aggregate amount of over HK$18 million in the past 16 years. As a token of appreciation, souvenirs were presented to Mr. Kenneth Ting, SBS, JP; Mr. Lau Pak Shing; HKBU Alumni Association and HKBU Baptist Chemists which have provided staunch support for the Golf Day for 10 years.
The ceremonial tee-off cum cheque presentation ceremony was officiated by Mr. Sunny Wong, Chief Consultant of Tibet Water Resources Ltd., the event’s Title Sponsor; Mr. Allan Kwong, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Regal Holdings Corporation, the event’s Venue Sponsor; Mr. Dean Nelson, Director of Golf of The Hong Kong Golf Club; Dr. Ronald Lu and Ir Dr. K.K. Wong, GBS, JP, Co-Chairmen of the event’s Organising Committee; Professor Roland Chin, President and Vice-Chancellor; and Mrs. Lily Chan, Director of University Advancement and Secretary-General of the HKBU Foundation.
After rounds of keen competition, a dinner cum prize presentation ceremony was held. In his address, Mr. Yeung Chee Kong, Associate Vice-President (Engagement), expressed his heartfelt appreciation to the sponsors of the event, particularly Tibet Water Resources Ltd. and Regal Holdings Corporation for being the Title Sponsor and Venue Sponsor respectively. He also thanked members of the Organising Committee for their invaluable advice which facilitated the smooth running of the event. There was also a “Lucky Draw” session after the prize presentation ceremony.
To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the HKBU Foundation and to secure more resources for the University, a charity auction of fine red wines was held this year. The fun-filled moments at the Golf Day would be captured in the newspaper supplements published in Hong Kong Economic Times and Sing Tao Daily on 22 November 2019.
