Around 60-70 Lighthouse Club Women In Construction, Young Members and Hong Kong Committee members gathered at the prestigious China Club on the evening of 19th January in order to celebrate the start of the 10th Year celebrations of the formation of the Group.
Guests included Ms. Ada Fung, Hong Kong Housing Authority, Mr. Christopher To, former Executive Director of Construction Industry Council, Dr. Derrick Pang, Chun Wo Development Holdings Ltd & our current President, Dr. Kingsley Chan, Dermatologist, Dr. Sujata S. Govada, DUP international and, of course, Ms. Jenny Deli, famously the No. 1 Lady Member of a Lighthouse Club anywhere in the world.
Drinks and nibbles were served and the assembled were treated to a presentation by Shannon Ho, ably assisted by her fellow committee members Bobo Chow, Monique Hansen, Yahamali Wijesinghe, Cordia Yu, which outlined the history and the achievements of the Women in Construction Group since its inauguration in 2007.
John Battersby was then asked to speak about the Group’s founder, Miriam Walker, who, tragically, is no longer with us. Miriam’s vibrant personality and enthusiasm made the Group what it is today: a wonderful testament to the commitment and determination of our ladies to be recognized as future leaders within the construction industry.
A total of HK$6,730 donation was raised by passing around the pink helmets (to carry on the tradition which Miriam started).
A big Thank You for BK Asia Pacific who sponsored the event.
Women in Construction will be holding a series of celebratory events throughout the rest of 2017 details of which will be circulated to all members.
