Recently I had the privilege of attending a fundraising cocktail party hosted by the Burberry flagship boutique in Toronto in honour of the Yee Hong Foundation. The evening was hosted by Gregory Tsang, long time board member of the Yee Hong Foundation (pictured above) and Burberry store manager, Jeck Chou.
The event also coincided with the launch of Burberry’s DK88 bag. The latest ‘It Bag’ from the iconic luxury brand launched in early June and is named after the for the luxury brand’s signature honey-coloured gabardine fabric. For a limited time, clients can order bespoke versions of the bag at the Toronto location. Above, Elizabeth Eluszkiewics, Burberry's private client consultant, highlights the special features of the new addition to the Burberry lineup.
Guests were welcomed with a glass of sparkling wine and were treated to wine and h’orderves throughout the evening. There was also an artist on hand to paint a portrait of attendees holding one of the beautiful Burberry bags (I loved mine!...see it above).
Also on hand were Burberry events manager, Katherine Sampson (above left), and Yee Hong's Development Manager, Linda Tse (above right).
Proceeds from the sales of the evening’s event were donated to the Yee Hong Foundation. The organization enables Chinese Canadian and other seniors to live their lives to the fullest – healthy, independent and dignified. They provide a continuum of excellent, culturally appropriate care. Services include long-term care, community services, medical services and community housing.
