Themed as “Spread some Joy this Christmas”, Operation Santa Claus, the annual fundraising event jointly organised by Radio Television Hong Kong (RTHK) Radio 3 and the South China Morning Post (SCMP), has raised more than HK$17 million for 13 charity projects this year.
Guests at the closing ceremony, held at Crown Wine Cellars in Shouson Hill, were entertained by band leader Colin Aitchison and the China Coast Jazzmen. And 13-year-old award-winning local singer Elizabeth Stewart was also on stage to help fill the occasion with warmth.
