Tanner De Witt supports the Hong Kong Blue Tie Ball 2018 as Platinum Sponsor

207月2018

We are delighted to announce that we will once again sponsor the Hong Kong Blue Tie Ball, which will be held at the Hong Kong Football Club on Saturday 1st September. We are supporting this year’s event as Platinum Sponsor.

Last year’s inaugural Blue Tie Ball was attended by Partners Mark Side, Russell Bennett and Joanne Brown, Solicitor Samantha Chu and Marketing and Business Development Manager Lizzie Fraser. The Ball successfully raised over HK$650,000 in support of local mental health programs. We are pleased to report that this year’s Ball is already completely sold out; we look forward to exceeding last year’s amount!

Funds raised will support four not-for-profit organisations:
