It is home to the popular special draw and a silent auction filled with fine items and collectibles. The Cathay Ball brings together over a thousand guests including corporations, sponsors, professionals, and government officials to enjoy an extravagant evening – all for the purpose of benefitting Mon Sheong Foundation’s charitable initiatives.
