Dear HPA members, associate members, friends & guests,
After months of planning and preparation, the HPA Gala Dinner finally happened last Friday (3-Nov)! We hope you had a wonderful evening of entertainment, games and rekindled friendship.
The Organizing Committee was very happy to receive many positive comments about the Gala Dinner, and it had really made our day.
On behalf of the Organizing Committee and HPA Exco, we would like to mention special thanks below to everyone who had contributed to make this event successful.
First, our special thanks to all our Corporate and Member Table sponsors, without whom we would not have being able organize the event. We are grateful for our President, Soh Keng, who supported the event with her 5 Member tables.
Second, thanks to all the prize sponsors for our event – Corporate and individual sponsors. Our deep gratitude to HP Inc for their generosity for being the biggest sponsor of prizes with their Laptop, Laser and Sprocket printers! Also to our Chairman Jok Kwang with the bicycles for the Best Dressed competition.
Third, we could not have organised the event without the commitment and dedication of the Organizing Committee, led by our VP Kok Chin, fellow Exco members Mina and Soo Meng and members Angelina (in charge of Programme and prizes) and Nica (in charge of Deco).
Since May, we had our meetings in Soo Meng’s office, who also played a key role in the Creative design of our EDMs, all collaterals and recommendation for our song item by Miss Lauren Yeo. Mina was instrumental in the development of the table games and recommended the dance item by West Coast Swing.
Both Angelina and Nica worked closely with Winnie to plan and make sure that everything goes well for our deco and overall programming for the Dinner. Kudos to them!
Besides our Organizing Committee, Exco members and volunteers helped out on the day itself and meticulous preparation for the deco, tables, reception and everything that had made this year’s event a memorable one indeed.
Lastly, and surely not the least, we also have to say a big “thank you” to our Secretariat, Winnie, for her great organizing skills and for being such a detailed person. She was the “glue” which had make all of us to work together.
Thanks to all for the excellent support and teamwork and we hope to see all again next year!
