Tanner De Witt supports the Hong Kong Blue Tie Ball 2019 as Platinum Sponsor


We are delighted to announce that we are supporting the Hong Kong Blue Tie Ball as Platinum Sponsor for the third year in a row. This year’s Ball will be held at the Hong Kong Football Club on Saturday 7 September.

Fundraising efforts last year netted nearly HK$1 million in donations. This year, the organisers hope to cross the million-dollar mark. It’s looking promising, especially because tickets for this year sold out in just under 10 hours!
