HandsOn Hong Kong’s Annual “Drink For Good” Community Event Brings Bars & Brands Together For A Good Cause
HandsOn Hong Kong’s annual fundraising event Drink For Good returns to Hong Kong for the third edition on Thursday, 8 October 2015. Over 60 bars and restaurants in Central, Soho, LKF, Wanchai, Quarry Bay and beyond support HandsOn Hong Kong by donating HKD5 or more for each drink purchased on the day or night. All donations go towards raising funds for HandsOn Hong Kong’s programs for kids with special needs and other programs addressing pressing social needs in Hong Kong.
Drink for Good brings together Hong Kong’s best venues with a sponsor brand or corporation for a fun evening out that gives back to the community. Brand and corporate sponsors can “adopt” a venue for the night, creating meaningful networking events with colleagues and friends, and exclusive branding opportunities, at a cost of HKD2,000. Last year the event saw over 45 brand and corporate partners drink for a cause and spread the message. HandsOn Hong Kong is currently inviting brands and corporate for sponsorship opportunities.
Much needed selfies to capture moments throughout the night
The past two events have proven the concept a success, raising over HKD100,000 each year. In 2013, the initiative was supported by 64 venues and 50 brands and corporate partners, enabling 100 disabled youngsters to visit Ocean Park. The following year saw 83 venues and 45 brands and corporate partners making wishes come true for 500 children with special needs.
“HandsOn Hong Kong is excited that the initiative is now in its third year! It is wonderful to see venues and sponsors spontaneously coming back to us, asking to take part in this year’s event. It is touching to see how much people care about giving back to our community!” says Caroline Sprod, Executive Director HandsOn Hong Kong.

“We always have a good time doing great work with HandsOn Hong Kong, but Drink For Good clearly wins ‘Most Fun Charitable Cause’! Everyone should come out and support – we’ll definitely be back this year for more!” Guy Parsonage, CEO, fluid.
For its third year, Drink For Good is delighted to still partner and count on the support of several sponsors like fluid, GH Mumm, Sinclair Communications and Smart Drop.
