Blue Tie Ball’s aim is to raise funds for mental health awareness in Hong Kong, making it the first ball of its kind in the city. Partners Mark Side, Russell Bennett and Joanne Brown attended with Solicitor Samantha Chu and Head of Marketing and Business Development Lizzie Fraser to show support for this charity fundraiser, which raised funds for KELY and batyr.

The programs engage, educate and empower the audience to learn from the experiences of others and to reach out to the great services around them.
