Little Prince Foundation hosts its Premier Charity Event at Ocean Park
Little Prince Foundation (LPF) hosted its Premier Charity Event at Ocean Park on December 17, 2023. The event was in collaboration with Ocean Park Conservation Hong Kong (OPCHK) and Ebenezer School & Home for the Visually Impaired. It was attended by 154 guests, including students from Ebenezer School & Home, as well as their relatives and caretakers, who enjoyed a day filled with warmth, learning, and connection.
The day began with a briefing for LPF staff and volunteers, ensuring everyone was well-informed and prepared for the activities ahead. They were acquainted with the Ocean Park facilities and the schedule for the day. The beneficiary guests from Ebenezer School & Home were warmly welcomed by LPF and OPC staff and volunteers, fostering an atmosphere of unity and cooperation. The event commenced with a heartwarming opening speech by Noletta Chiu, Founder and Chair of LPF.
One of thehighlights of the event was the visit to Le Petit Prince Starry Universe at Ocean Park, an experience that immersed participants in a world where artistry meets emotion. The storytelling session at the Training Centre further enriched the journey as attendees delved into narratives that transcended age and ability. The storyteller for the session was Stephen Choi, a Hong Kong-based illustrator who has gained international recognition for his unique aesthetic style. Stephen is the first artist from Hong Kong to be officially authorized to illustrate a 'Le Petit Prince' picture book.
Every child who attended the event received a souvenir pack containing a handmade woollen Le Petit Prince brooch made by one of the LPF volunteers. After the half day event, all guests are free to stay and enjoy the facilities at the Ocean Park.
We extendour heartfelt gratitude to everyone who joined us on this memorable day. Your presence turned moments into memories, illuminating paths where light meetsdarkness.
Together, we continue weaving stories where hope, resilience, and kindness shine brightest.
