Fred Lee's Social Network: Feb. 15 (Mount Saint Joseph Hospital)
HORSE POWER: The A-list arrived en masse at the Hyatt Regency Hotel for Mount Saint Joseph Hospital’s Feast of Fortune Gala. More than 750 folks gathered for the hospital’s signature soiree, presented by Scotiabank. Upon arrival, the guests — which included Scotiabank Senior VP Winnie Leong, MP Alice Wong, and Fairchild Media CEO Joe Chan — mingled among silent-auction pieces while sipping champagne, exchanging air kisses and enjoying culinary delights from six acclaimed Chinese Restaurant Award-winning chefs. A royal feast of lobster and beef tenderloin was then served in the ballroom to usher in the year of the sheep.
Emceed by media personalities William Ho and Dawn Chubai, the gala’s eighth running offered a little more horsepower thanks to Luxury Supercar Weekend founder Craig Stowe. Invited by party chairs Margaret Chiu, Chris Stepien and Heather Pei Huang and honorary chairs Grant Lin and Sing Lim Yeo, Stowe offered successful bidders exclusive access to purchase coveted vehicles including Ferraris, Maseratis and McLarens, skipping waiting periods of up to three years.
