Hong Kong Dog Rescue is delighted to welcome you to the 2017 Diamond Dogs Fundraising Gala on Saturday 9 September 2017! The below invitation includes some key information so please read everything carefully.
The doors open at 6pm sharp and as we have a lot to enjoy on the night, we will be keeping a strict schedule throughout the evening. We will kick off with cocktail hour and will aim to sit down to dinner no later than 7.15pm so if you want to enjoy some of the signature cocktails made specially for the event, please don’t be late! The event this year includes an open bar, a number of entertainment acts, the silent auction and of course the live auction as well as a raffle draw and dancing. The event will conclude at 12am.
Our raffle is cash only so if you want to purchase raffle tickets please ensure you bring cash with you.
Upon arrival, please check in with reception to pick up your programme book and your table name. We have some fantastic auction items and raffle prizes this year so something is sure to catch your eye.
We have partnered with Givergy to assist us in our silent auction this year so all silent auction items will be available to view two weeks prior to the auction. A follow up email will be circulated once the website is up and running so you can take a look at what’s on offer. The silent auction will be much more interactive this year which we hope you will enjoy. Please ensure you bring along your smart phones as they will play a vital role in the bidding process.
The dress code this year is a mix of fun and formal. If you are a fan of Moulin Rouge, you will have seen the costumes donned by the characters the movie so you’ll have an idea of what to wear. If not, a quick online search of costumes from the famous dance hall will give you plenty of ideas. Alternatively, if fancy dress is not your forte, please feel free to come in a suit for gentlemen or a formal / semi-formal dress for ladies.
If you are driving, the Aberdeen Marina Club does offer parking. Details about this are available below. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to get in touch. We are looking forward to seeing you on 9 September.
