#DRAGON IN MOTION
Dragons X Yidan Prize Summit
Dragons are honoured to be invited to attend and help out at the world’s largest education prize, the Yidan Prize’s Award Presentation Ceremony and Summit on Dec 10 and 11. A glamorous night having the Hong Kong Chief Executive Mrs. Carrie Lam being GoH, the two Prize Laureates, Dr. Charles Chen himself, and many more guests. Salute to Clive Lee (D2006) our great Founding President of DragoNation, and the Dragons who are now serving the meaningful Prize! Let’s “create a better world through education”
.

Dragons X Charity Movie Premiere
Enthusiastic Dragons supporting and enjoying at The Dragon Foundation’s “Home Again” Charity Gala Premiere.
Dragons X Our Hong Kong Foundation
Our Hong Kong Foundation, an influential think tank in Hong Kong who conducts research, studies and policy recommendations to strengthen relationships and extend collaboration opportunities. Led by our President Re Lai, a group of passionate Dragons were glad to meet with OHKF Senior Consultant Mr Thomas Tso (front row first right).
Dragons X Belt and Road
Led by our Past President Nelson Lam, Rex Lai (President) and William Yuen (International Development Secretary) were invited to represent DragoNation to attend the Silk Road Development Association’s 3rd year anniversary celebrations.
Dragons X Blood Donor
Number of blood donors has been persistently failing to meet the daily target of 1,100 people. The recent cold weather has even pushed it down to only 200-300 a day. President Rex Lai and our sub-committee Dragons Kate Yiu and Bamei Chang immediately teamed up to donate blood! Good job.

Dragon Sweet Moments
Congratulations to our Sub-Committee Dragons Kevin Yu (D2017) and his beautiful wife Vivian who tied their knot in Dec!
