A Legendary Celebration

A Legendary Celebration
The culmination of The Peninsula Hong Kong’s 85th anniversary celebrations reached a spectacular crescendo with an illuminated, animated art spectacle for the hotel's birthday gala on 11 December 2013, and the three evenings beyond, from 12-14 December. Acclaimed Chinese ink artist Lee Chi Ching utilised the hotel’s classic facade to tell the story of Hong Kong, the city The Peninsula is proud to call home, in a painting which was animated and brought to life as a 3-D projection.

It was the fitting pinnacle of a year of heritage-inspired Afternoon Tea Dances, youth arts performances, and meaningful initiatives that saw HK$ 4 million raised, to be split equally between the hotel's four not-for-profit partners including Make-A-Wish®, St James’ Settlement Funeral Navigation Service, the Hong Kong Hereditary Breast Cancer Family Registry, and the Hong Kong Council of Social Service, through which the hotel established an incubating fund for social enterprises; in addition to founding a Scholarship for Gastronomic Excellence in Dim Sum, to preserve the disappearing art of dim-sum making among young chefs. With the help of the Hong Kong Arts Centre and Public Art Hong Kong, artist Lee Chi Ching charted the shared legacy of Asia's Grande Dame and her beloved Hong Kong.
