40th Anniversary Charity Ball
Invitation to “Rotary Club of Kwun Tong 40th Anniversary Charity Ball”
Founded in 1974, Rotary Club of Kwun Tong has been serving the Kwun Tong
Community with passion and love. A number of events were organized throughout the
years, such as Hong Kong Youth Culture and Arts Competition (「全港青年學藝繪畫比
賽」), Grow Together with the Youth ( 「結伴成長齊同行」), Community
Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation Training (「心肺復甦社區訓練日」), etc.
This year simultaneously marks the 40th anniversary of both Rotary Club of Kwun Tong
and United Christian Hospital. United Christian Hospital (“UCH”) is the “Community
Hospital” of Kwun Tong and is serving approximately 1 million people in the community
of Kwun Tong and East Kowloon. She was approved by the HKSAR Government in
2011 to embark on an Expansion Project. The Project would last for 10 years, covers
1. To develop a comprehensive chemotherapy and radiotherapy service;
2. To enhance the existing ambulatory services and short-stay management;
3. To expand the existing specialist out-patient services;
4. To establish an Emergency Medicine Ward and an Acute Admission Ward; and
5. To enhance the existing convalescent and rehabilitation services.
Therefore, we plan to celebrate our anniversary as well as that of United Christian
Hospital through organizing “Rotary Club of Kwun Tong 40th Anniversary Charity Ball”.
The funds raised from the Event will be donated to United Christian Medical Service
(mother organization of UCH) for the UCH Expansion Project. The Event is scheduled
to be held on the evening of 31 December 2013 (Tuesday) at Versailles Ballroom, 3/F,
Regal Kowloon Hotel, Tsimshatsui. Rotary District 3450 members, community leaders
from Kwun Tong, as well as friends from all walks of life will be invited to the Event.

beyond doubt be brightened up by the Presence of you and your members. We earnestly
