After the huge success of the inaugural event last year, AkarakA Hong Kong hosted another “Laugh Out Loud! “- Comedy Night on July 21st. Repeating a winning formula, we teamed up with Jamie and his fellow comedians from Hong Kong’s leading comedy club “TakeOut Comedy”, keeping Champs Bar at The Charterhouse hotel in Wan Chai as our location of choice.
Having sold 115 tickets the guaranteed full house anxiously waited for the 5 comedians and these guys lived up to the expectations and provided a great evening of entertainment.
At the end of the evening we raised HKD 25,000 net from ticket sales and further donations from the attendees. A fantastic amount that we can put directly into good use as AkarakA Hong Kong will use these funds to sponsor a student in Hong Kong for his or her higher education from September/October onwards. Stay tuned for more info about this later this year.
Big thanks to all attendees and the comedians (Jamie, Garron, Pete, Vivek and Ben) for making this fund raising event such a success.
Trust that we will back for Round 3 in 2017!
