  • Hong Kong Student Aid Society, founded in 1957, provides foster care, student residential services and schooling to children and youths in the Hong Kong area.


The History of Picnic in the Park

In 2005 a few Discovery Bay parents got together to watch their children perform in an outdoor dance recital in Siena Park.  The parents – many of them moonlighting in bands while holding down day jobs, recognized that the park was specifically designed and built for outdoor entertainment.  From that dance recital, Picnic in the Park was born!  With the support of Hong Kong Resorts, the very first Picnic in the Park was held on 9th December 2006.  It featured eight bands, attracted 1,500 attendees and raised money for the Hong Chi Association.  Over the years, PIP has grown in size and audience, all while maintaining it’s community grassroots feel.  Last year’s event attracted 6,000 guests and raised $150,000 for charity.
