Ms. Pansy Ho, Managing Director, Shun Tak Holdings Limited, has become the PATA Foundation’s first official Ambassador.

Ms. Ho said, “I am indeed very honored to be named and offered this duty to become the ambassador for the PATA foundation. I personally share the objectives and the mission of the Foundation and I would like very much to call upon all of you here to help us.”

Beginning next year, Ms. Ho will jointly organize and support an annual fundraising gala dinner with proceeds going to the PATA Foundation.

“From next year onwards, in time with the Global Tourism Economy Forum event, we will be organizing a fundraising gala dinner where, trust me, you will get to hear more from me because I will reach out to all of you,” said Ms. Ho. “And by participating, not only will you also take home knowledge and insight, but rather we want you to also put back a little bit of your own contribution to the community. Via the PATA foundation, we can make tourism not only the largest industry in the world, but something that could help the communities that we live in.”

The gala dinner will be the first of its kind for the PATA Foundation, which will work closely with Ms. Ho’s team to organize the event. Coinciding with the Global Tourism Economy Forum in 2014, the gala will aim to raise the profile of the Foundation and subsequently have major impact on the projects that are funded through significant contributions made by attendees and sponsors.

“We are delighted that Ms. Pansy Ho has accepted our invitation to be an ambassador for the PATA Foundation,” said Mr. Mario Hardy, PATA Foundation Chairman. "Over the past 28 years the Foundation has supported over 118 sustainable tourism projects, provided 104 scholarships and has positively impacted 29 countries through donations and grants in excess of US$1 million.”
