4th in a row! On November 8 2018, AkarakA Hong Kong hosted its annual “Laugh Out Loud” Comedy Night at the Champs Bar in Charterhouse Hotel, Wan Chai.
Jami Gong from Hong Kong’s premier comedy club TakeOut Comedy and his team of 4 comedians did another fantastic job entertaining a full house of AkarakA supporters – from first timers to recurring guests.
The night was not only about comedy and fundraising, but also an opportunity to celebrate our achievements in helping young adults getting their formal education. We presented a video from partner UpLift Philippines, mentioned our ongoing support locally via Po Leung Kuk and introduced our planned engagement with the Christina Noble Foundation in Mongolia.
After the presentations, Jamie and the comedians took stage one by one and put up a great show. Mostly touching on topics of daily life in Hong Kong (which everybody could relate to!), they earned lots of laughter from the audience: from giggles to belly laughs and, in some instances, tears.
A BIG THANK YOU to Jami Gong, Benjamin Quinlan, Garron Chiu, Ryan Hynek and Maitreyi Karanth They played a vital role in enabling AkarakA HK to be able to raise north of HKD33k from ticket sales and on-site donations, which will help tremendously towards funding our projects.
A lot of thanks to all who joined us and support our cause. We really appreciate it
