RTHK – Hong Kong committed to Charity Fundraising Operation

One of Hong Kong’s biggest annual fundraising campaigns – Operation Santa Claus (OSC), jointly organised by Radio Television Hong Kong (RTHK) and South China Morning Post (SCMP), is marking its 30th year with the theme “Changing Lives for Good”.

OSC has raised over HK$260 million and benefited more than 250 different charities in the past 29 years. A launch ceremony for “Operation Santa Claus 2017” was held last week where 14 good causes serving children & youth, elderly, community, and medical services that will benefit from this year’s charity event were also introduced.

This marked the beginning of a series of fundraising events that will be held throughout till the end of December.

The Ceremony also featured several performances by Hong Kong Rope Skipping Club, DJ JUNK! as well as “Giving Voices” which is a choir formed by major OSC corporate donors.

This year, OSC will once again be saluting its most outstanding supporters with special awards in various areas, namely “Top Corporate Fundraiser Award”, “Top School Fundraiser Award”, “Most Creative Fundraiser Award” and “Most Creative School Award”.

The award list will be announced during the closing ceremony of OSC in January 2018.
