From 22 to 24 September, more than 100 patrons and 19 students together with their parents travelled on the luxury cruise ship for weekend of fun on the high seas. As part of this initiative, a donation of HK$300,000 was also made to TWGH’s Student All-rounded Development Fund to support its education services.

“I would like to thank all the patrons for their support of the TWGH’s Charity Voyage on board Genting Dream. This is a very significant charity project of which Dream Cruises is extremely proud to be associated with," said Mr Thatcher Brown, President of Dream Cruises. "As our parent company, Genting Hong Kong, expands its business in Asia, it is equally important that we also expand our support for the communities in which we operate. It is very fitting that Dream Cruises is hosting this charity voyage as we are committed to helping the youth of Hong Kong to fulfil their dreams of continuing their education for a better future.”

Mr Kazaf Tam, Chairman of the organizing committee for TWGHs Charity Voyage on Dream Cruises cum 4th Vice-Chairman of TWGHs, remarked that the organization was delighted to be holding its Charity Voyage on Genting Dream again following on the success of the first cruise in January 2017. Mr Tam added, “On behalf of TWGH, I would like to thank Genting Hong Kong for its generous donation to our Student All-rounded Development Fund and to Dream Cruises for co-organizing this event. Nearly 20 students were sponsored by our patrons to cruise together with their parents on board Genting Dream to help expand their horizons and to encourage them to work hard for their dreams.”

As part of the voyage, TWGHs and Dream Cruises arranged special activities for the patrons, students and their parents on board, including a “Patron’s Luncheon”, Summer Team Challenge and a festive foam party at the ZOUK Beach Club for a meaningful and fun-filled weekend get-away.
