Exactly 85 years to the day of her 1928 launch, The Peninsula Hong Kong celebrated another milestone in convivial style with an evening of splendid entertainment and refined joie de vivre on Wednesday, 11 December 2013. And, despite her advancing years, Hong Kong?s ?Grande Dame? had never looked better as she welcomed the great and the good of Hong Kong and beyond for a
gala celebration that will live long in the memory of all who attended.

The much-anticipated day was the culmination of a year of celebrations at The Peninsula to commemorate the hotel?s eight and a half decades of superlative hospitality. The day began with a spirited lion dance in the morning, and The Hon. Sir Michael Kadoorie, Chairman of The Hongkong and Shanghai Hotels, Limited then gave a short but heartfelt speech before presenting cheques to four charitable organisations. Receiving HK$ 1 million each, the grateful beneficiaries of the hotel?s year-round philanthropic endeavours were Make-A-Wish? Hong Kong, The Hong Kong Hereditary Breast Cancer Family Registry, The Hong Kong Council of Social Service and St James? Settlement Funeral Navigation Service.

Following the cheque presentation, Sir Michael was joined on stage by Mr Clement Kwok, Chief Executive Officer and Mr Peter Borer, Chief Operating Officer of The Hongkong and Shanghai Hotels, Limited, and Ms Rainy Chan, Regional Vice-President, The Peninsula Hotels and General Manager, The Peninsula Hong Kong for the cake-cutting ceremony and Champagne toast.
