Asia Society Hong Kong Thanksgiving Virtual Gala

Table of Contents

This October 2020, Asia Society Hong Kong (ASHK) will celebrate its 30th anniversary.  We will hold a virtual Thanksgiving Gala on Tuesday, November 17, 2020 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. ASHK will take this momentous occasion to honor 12 visionaries who have been instrumental in the establishment of Asia Society in Hong Kong. We are delighted to honor Sir Q.W. Lee, Robert B. Oxnam, Jack Tang, Hong Kong Jockey Club, Robert and Chantal Miller, Mochtar Riady, Burton Levin, Nicholas Platt, Tung Chee-hwa, Chien Lee, Mary Lee Turner, and John S. Wadsworth Jr.

To show our appreciation at this time of giving, we will showcase ASHK’s diverse contribution to the city: Fireside chats with inspiring leaders of Hong Kong (12 highly respected honorees), in-depth and timely political discussion on the future of the Sino-American relationship under the new U.S. administration, and some special music performances. To conclude the evening, we will welcome guests to an after party from 8:30 to 9:15 p.m. True to our mission, we promise to inspire, unite and connect!

2020 has been challenging for Hong Kong, and ASHK is not immune to its effects. Despite the adversities, we continue to steer ahead and provide you with different programs and events in innovative ways. Proceeds from this gala will contribute significantly to our mission of educating people about the countries and culture of Asia and global issues that impact the region.

Please find more details on table sponsorship and ticket purchase here. Any donation will be matched 1:1 thanks to a matching initiative from the ASHK Board of Trustees.

Fireside Chat: The Future of U.S.-China Relations

At Asia Society Hong Kong Center, our mission is to promote mutual understanding and strengthen partnerships among peoples, leaders and institutions in Asia and the West. Being nestled in Hong Kong, a global city and geopolitical hotspot where East meets West, U.S.-China relations remain front and centre. As we come together for a revered American tradition to celebrate togetherness, join us for a dialogue for which we unite high-ranking U.S. and Chinese diplomats for an engaging conversation on the future of the Sino-American relationship under the new U.S. administration.


Thank you for considering supporting our gala. ASHK has partnered with a number of local Hong Kong restaurants. Acknowledging how hard they have affected by Covid-19, we hope to provide some much needed support to the Food and Beverage Industry while providing diverse dinner options for our guests.
