Toronto, ON, October 10, 2018 – Mon Sheong Foundation’s 27th annual Cathay Ball will be held on Saturday, November 10, 2018. The theme “Splendours of Argentina” was announced today. Mon Sheong is bringing their guests on an enchanting journey through Argentina’s breathtaking landscapes, sumptuous food and sensual culture. All proceeds will go towards Mon Sheong Foundation’s charitable programs and services.
This year’s theme pushed the imagination of Co-chairs, Garth Low, First Vice Chairman of Mon Sheong Foundation, and David Cheng, Vice President of Mon Sheong Foundation. To create an Argentine environment, the organizing committee will bring the unique beauty of Argentina’s landscape and the vibrant buildings of La Boca to this year’s Cathay Ball. Providing ample opportunity for guests to immerse themselves in Argentina’s unique landscape, Mon Sheong will be providing various photo booths for guests to take pictures. “With beautiful landscapes, colourful La Boca, and sensual Tango, we are bringing Argentina to our guests.” Low said, “We’ve specially invited internationally renowned Argentine Tango dancers, Bryant Lopez and Faye Lopez to perform this year. CarryOn Band and RSDivas Creative will also be putting on a spectacular show for us again.”
“We are so happy to have HSBC Bank Canada as our Presenting Sponsor, and with their support, we are able to provide a beautiful environment for our guests to enjoy. For people to commemorate the night in a special way, Kingscross Hyundai and Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office (Toronto) will be providing exceptional photo booths. We’ve also brought back our social media photo booth, supported by Bell. Just upload your picture to Instagram and comment #cathayball, our social photo booth will print you a copy of your picture.” Cheng added, “This year, our Mon Sheong Foundation Lifestyle Magazine will be filled with stories of Argentina, recipes and updates on Mon Sheong’s activities, services and programs. We hope our guests will enjoy it as much as we enjoyed creating it.”
