From charity runs to “Biggest Loser” competitions and rugby team sponsorships to golf fundraisers, community engagement is central to Tanner De Witt’s spirit. We are committed to providing legal services to and supporting appropriate Hong Kong and international charities, groups and organisations that have special relevance to our team and our clients.
ESF Lions Youth Football
Tanner De Witt is proud sponsor of the ESF Lions Youth Football Programme which has been providing after school, girls only and academy sessions for aspiring football stars in Hong Kong for years. ESF Sports, which is a department of ESF Educational Services Ltd, nurtures local talent and provides sporting opportunities for bright young players in Hong Kong.
HKRU Domestic League Referees
As part of our ongoing commitment to supporting local organisations in the region, we are delighted to announce that we are the official gold sponsor of the Hong Kong Society for Referees for the domestic rugby league on a three year sponsorship contract beginning 2015. The referee is an integral part of every game in any sport; they must maintain a high level of fitness and are not always the most popular people on the pitch so their commitment to the game is particularly admirable. Furthermore the domestic rugby league of Hong Kong has gone from strength to strength in recent years and none of this is possible without the commitment of the referees and the investment by the HKRU into the referee program.
DB Run for Charity 2015
Tanner De Witt was proud to sponsor this year's well attended DB Run for Charity held on Saturday 14th November. More information here.
Bloomberg Square Mile Relay 2015
Members of Tanner De Witt participated in the 2015 Bloomberg Square Mile Relay held on the Central Harbourfront. The winners of this event receive a cheque for HK$80,000 to donate to a charity of their choice. Although we did not win the race we ran for a good cause, a chance to donate money to charity. This year’s beneficiary was Indochina Starfish Foundation. If you would like to read more about our experience at the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay, click here.
We raised significant funds for a range of other charities in Hong Kong including CancerFund.
