Cancellation of the Anniversaries Gala Dinner of 30 Jan 2020

– Standing together against the novel coronavirus –

The situation regarding the novel coronavirus (“Wuhan coronavirus”) outbreak in the mainland of China is deteriorating rapidly and Hong Kong has been stepping up measures to contain the spread. The Schools and the Gala Dinner Organizing Committee (OC) have been monitoring the situation closely, conducting negotiations with the HKCEC and discerning the best way forward in the face of this quickly evolving and challenging situation. The large part of the production costs has been incurred because of preparations already done before the Chinese New Year and cannot be salvaged. The HKCEC has also ordered the food and made other preparations. Based on the contract, we are liable to the full dinner cost regardless of whether we go ahead with or cancel the dinner. However, this morning the OC managed to secure from the HKCEC a special deal that if we cancel the event today, we have to forfeit only the deposit paid so we can save about $1.7M not yet paid. The option of postponement is not on the table. In summary, a large amount has been incurred if we cancel the event, but the loss is not total.

After careful deliberation, including a reflection on how we should celebrate our anniversaries in a meaningful way – the way true to our spirit of being “men for and with others” in response to the signs of the time – we have decided to cancel the event on 30 Jan 2020. At this critical juncture in Hong Kong’s fight against the coronavirus, we do not want to overburden our medical profession by inadvertently increasing the risk of a community outbreak in Hong Kong.

In terms of refund, given the situation of financial tightening which our alma maters are already facing, we can only commit to a prorated amount after honoring all financial obligations with fees collected. Details of the refund will be made available to participants after all numbers are finalized. When circumstances permit, we shall consider some form of a gathering among alumni (such as a pun choi “盆菜” meal) that is feasible under the various constraints.

We ask for your understanding and support of this extremely difficult decision which takes into account a host of factors, including the values we want to live out as Wahyanites.

Stay healthy, and God bless.

Dr. YL So,
Assistant Supervisor, WYHK and Co-chair of Anniversary Steering Committee
Mr. Warren Chung,
Principal, WYK and Co-chair of Anniversary Steering Committee

Executive Chairman of Gala Dinner OC

華仁書院穿越百年同步立新慶祝系列

各位華仁師兄弟:

大家好!

相信各位都知道華仁「穿越百年 同步立新」晚宴將於12月1號假香港會議展覽中心舉行,是次活動由周神父,蘇校長和鍾校長領導的籌委會連同一眾兩華師兄弟舉辦,相信活動必定在華仁史上有一個重要位置!

是次晚宴聚會的晚宴費用由與會師兄弟各自承擔,但當中涉及的製作費用是需要籌款來支持的。籌款目標為500萬,當中包括神父、校長、老師及退休老師晚宴的費用,亦包括兩個大型晚宴廳及酒會場地的所有製作費用,更包括晚宴紀念品及具記念性的場刊等等。

港華創校剛好100年,九華創校亦至95年,當中耶穌會春風化雨培育一代又一代的社會棟樑,歷年傑出校友多不勝數,成為香港各階層代表人物更是多如恆沙,當中當然有很多師兄願意支持是次晚宴;但學校與籌委會更希望能夠發揮華仁精神,合眾人之力來完成目標。

所以晚宴籌款小組特別安排一個立體的「穿越百年圖」來彰顯兩華師兄弟們萬眾一心。這個「穿越百年圖」是一個木製成品,約1.5米高,做出「100」的立體效果;當中會安排很多小名牌,記載着每一位願意捐助晚宴的師兄弟名字,還附設空間可放一段約40英文宇或20中文字自訂的祝福語句。

更特別是籌委會將會安排一張「晚宴合照」,屆時會邀請一眾於「穿越百年圖」上留名的捐款人與眾神父,校長及全體籌委會委員合照。這張合照無容置疑將會成為華仁歷史上其中一張極珍貴大合照!

籌款小組目標是有最少100位師兄弟,每人捐助港幣一萬圓或以上,期望為晚宴達到單項籌款超過港幣100萬圓。

期盼得到大家大力支持,請聯絡Collin Wong 5190-2495 (WYHK 02) 或 Vincent Li (WYK 96) 9477-4792 令華仁「穿越百年 同步立新」晚宴成為校慶矚目盛事!

Supplementary information in Chinese from Wah Yan Transcending 100 Gala Dinner facebook page:

各位港九華師兄弟,相信大家都知道:華仁「穿越百年 同步立新」晚宴將於2019年12月1日假香港會議展覽中心新翼大會堂舉行,小編剛收到籌備委員會(OC)關於第一階段訂枱的信息💓!

——————————————
簡單撮要一下給大家知道:

  1. 第一階段的訂枱登記由3月4日(星期一)開始至5月19日(星期日)結束;
  2. 這階段將會以枱數為基礎單位(即是1枱,2枱,3枱等等)(每枱以12位計),每枱港幣18,000元正(即每人港幣1,500元正)。
  3. 因為兩華畢業生眾多,為保持OC和有興趣參加的師兄弟溝通,OC希望盡量跟每年的聯絡人☎️聯繫(可以是class coordinator 或class rep或港九華舊生會代表等等都可以),以達到準確知道第一階段的報名枱數;
  4. 但OC都明白有部分師兄弟可能忘記了甚或不知道誰是class coordinator,所以訂枱小組貼心地♥️預備了一張網上查詢表格 (https://goo.gl/forms/T0guQ7piDFVofWAn2)📲給大家,OC會將資料交給相關的class coordinator以作協調;
  5. 另外,兩校家長亦可用上述表格表達興趣,相關資訊會轉交港華家教會或九華家長會跟進及協調;
  6. 仲有,大家唔駛心急比錢💵住,OC會在5月31日或之前先同class coordinator 確認第一階段枱數及人數,並請各class coordinator 協調各自班級的收款,再存入聯合校慶籌備委員會的相關銀行戶口。
  7. 最後請留意,因會展場地所限,及OC預期大家會對華仁百年慶祝有好大興趣😍,所以報名枱數有可能會有超於場地枱數,所以OC懇請大家早點報名,咁樣OC就可以盡早找再不同方案增加枱數,令更多師兄弟能一同慶祝華仁校慶🎆🥂🍾!
    ——————————————

請所有class coordinator 記得儘快與港九華的校慶晚宴訂枱聯絡人報枱數喇!
