• Generous Friends and Feather Boas

    4 September 2017

    The Lighthouse Club Macau held its annual dinner on the 28th of April 2017, attended by 213 guests. The evening commenced with drinks on the terrace of Sands Cotai Central Sheraton Hotel with the looming replica of the Eiffel Tower above us, giving the proceedings a decidedly Gallic feel. Aperitifs were followed by a sumptuous seafood feast and great fun was had by all, raising HK$ 130,000 in the process. Special thanks must go to the generosity of the evening’s sponsors;

    The monthly functions have as usual been lively affairs with the March event sponsored by Sika (HK) Ltd, April sponsored by Tabar Marble which involved Samba dancers and feather boas (not your typical attire on a construction site) to entertain the gathering and the May event was sponsored by Genyield Construction Co. Ltd. The events continue to be attended by our long time and new members and there has been a recent drive to encourage smaller local companies to also attend.

    Min Da Construction & Engineering Company Limited’s annual golf tournaments are one of the highlights of the year and at their third tournament held in April, Min Da very generously donated a further 250,000 MOP to the Lighthouse fund. Min Da is a leading construction and engineering company in Macau and Singapore with solid foundations in the construction community and a good site safety record, winning the ‘Best Safety Performance Trade Contractor 2015’. They have been a long time active member of the Lighthouse Club Macau and continue to champion the importance of safety awareness and practice on construction sites.

    Unfortunately there have been three construction fatalities this year and the Benevolent Fund stepped up to make donations to the families of the deceased. The committee are looking at how a portion of Benevolent Funds can be put towards a worthy cause such as sponsoring a young student in a safety in construction related course and working in conjunction with the Macau Labour Department to sponsor safety awareness seminars. We are working closely with local universities and government to see how this can come into fruition.
