University Foundation Fund Trustee Meeting and Dinner

23 February 2009

The 6th University Foundation Fund (UFF) Trustee Meeting was held at the Happy Valley Clubhouse of the Hong Kong Jockey Club on 23 February 2009. To express our appreciation to the members of the UFF and our supporters for standing by the University over the years, Hong Kong Baptist University hosted the UFF Dinner right after the meeting.

About 80 guests and staff attended the dinner, including Mr. Wilfred Wong, Chairman of the Council and the Court; Mr. Cheng Yan-Kee, Deputy Chairman of the Council and the Court; Mr. William Leung, Treasurer of the Council and the Court; Professor Ng Ching-Fai, President and Vice-Chancellor; Vice-Presidents, Associate Vice-Presidents and Deans.

In his welcoming speech, Professor Ng Ching-Fai expressed his heartfelt gratitude to Dr. Hung Hin-Siu, Chairman of the UFF, for his long-standing support and contribution to the University. 

Professor Ng said the Fund has grown steadily over the years and has a net balance of approximately HK$362 million as of 31 December 2008. In order to further enhance the Universityˇ¦s fundraising capability and extend its support base, Professor Ng announced that the existing UFF had been restructured and renamed the ˇ§Hong Kong Baptist University Foundationˇ¨ (ˇ§the Foundationˇ¨). Trustees, Sponsors and Friends of the UFF will be entitled to become members of the Foundation.  Souvenirs were presented to Honorary Trustees of the Foundation in recognition of their strong support to HKBU. 

The dinner was enlivened by student and alumni performances, including a prose recitation, acappella singing and a magic show.
