Donors Make a Splash for Underprivileged at Special Chest Event
Supported by Bank of China (Hong Kong)
The much anticipated Water World Ocean Park will officially open its doors to the public on 21 September 2021. With Ocean Park’s support, the Community Chest will hold “The Community Chest Water World Park Charity Day” on Monday, 13 September 2021 where donors and beneficiaries will take the first dip and make a splash.
Chest donors will have the exclusive opportunity to try out the indoor and outdoor attractions, including wave pools and the eight-lane racer slide, in five zones. In addition, 1,000 free tickets have been set aside for beneficiaries of the Chest’s social welfare agencies, benefitting the disadvantaged, such as single parent families, unprivileged children and youth from low income families.
The Chest wishes to thank Bank of China (Hong Kong) for fully supporting the event. Its generosity allows the Chest to allocate all funds raised without deduction of administrative costs for charitable use.
About The Community Chest of Hong Kong
The Community Chest of Hong Kong was established in 1968 as an independent, non-profit organisation neither funded nor operated by the government. Each year, the Chest organises fundraising events for over 160 social welfare member agencies to provide services to more than 2.5 million beneficiaries in Hong Kong in six major areas of services: children & youth, elderly, family & child welfare, medical & health, rehabilitation & aftercare, and community development. The Chest’s administration expenses come from a subsidised grant from our partner-in-charity, The Hong Kong Jockey Club, in addition to income from investments. This allows the Chest to allocate 100% of funds raised to charitable use; this operations model makes the Chest unique among its peers and helps fulfil the Chest’s mission to act as trustee of the donors.
