Kung Hei Fat Choy and President Martin wish all us have a healthy, wealthy and happy Year of Dragon!
Today, we had birthday girl, Hon. Treasurer Betty, as usual, and we sang the birthday song and presented a bottle of red wine to her. 

The speaker today was Ms. Robin Hwang; her topic was “Replacing Hunger with a Smile”.  Robin joined Foodlink Foundation Limited in 2010 as the Fundraising Director. She is responsible for organizing fundraising events and activities and seeking the support of sponsors and donors in order to uphold Foodlink’s charitable objectives. Aside from volunteering at Foodlink Foundation, Robin works in the real estate market after having received her B.A. from Williams College and her M.Sc. in Real Estate Investment and Finance from The University of Hong Kong.

Robin said Foodlink is committed to providing a nutritious and healthy meal to needy people in Hong Kong while simultaneously reducing wastage in the food service industry.  They collects safe-to-eat surplus food from top hotels and food & beverage outlets in Hong Kong and delivers the food to those who are in need – including homeless living in shelters, street sleepers, the unemployed, elderly, and other disenfranchised individuals and families.

Rtn Naresh collected HK$600 for raffle and fines.  PP Gary and PP Paul got the fortune book of Year of Dragon donated by PP George, President Martin got another raffle prize as candles and aroma box set.
