Event Recap | 2/11 The HKANC 39th Anniversary Gala at the Ritz Carlton, San Francisco

The HKANC 39th Anniversary Gala successfully concluded last Saturday (2/11), and it was a night to remember. It was a great pleasure to have over 280 local dignitaries, community leaders, and business professionals celebrate the evening with us.

The evening was filled with live entertainment, including performances by a talented band formed by the Federation for Children with Special Needs (FCSN) and friends. Guests were also treated to an exquisite culinary experience, with a variety of Asian-inspired dishes and a selection of exquisite wines and cocktails.

However, the highlight of the night was the raffle and live auction, which featured amazing prizes, including a business class flight to Hong Kong, a private Napa tour with Chef Martin Yan, a Michelin-starred chef, and luxurious hotel stays. All proceeds from the event will support the association's future operations and community programs, making it a truly meaningful and impactful evening.

During the event, HKANC 2023 Chair Brian Rowbotham and 2021-22 Chair Kory Lam welcomed our guests and celebrated the Association's latest achievements. They later initiated a group toast to wish everyone good health and prosperity in the year of the Rabbit. We were thrilled to reconnect with our friends and community members after such a long time due to the pandemic. Your presence and support have made this event a success, and we are grateful for your continuous support.

We are also very honored to have the following important guest speakers for the enlightening presentations at the welcome remarks. Special thank you to (in presentation order):

  • Ms. Jacko Tsang, Director of the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office, San Francisco;

  • Ms. Fiona Ma, the California State Treasurer;

  • Mr. Anders Fung, Council Member of Millbrae City Council and

  • Ms. Regina Lai, Regional Director of HKTDC Americas

Once again, the HKANC team wants to express our sincerest gratitude to all sponsors, participants, members, volunteers, and supporters. This event would not be possible without your support. We are excited to share that more event pictures will be available shortly. So, please stay tuned for updates on our website at and social media channels. We hope to see you again soon at our upcoming events, such as the HKANC Scholarship Annual Fundraising Golf Tournament and networking events!
