It was literally a star-studded ceremony that launched the Academy Galaxy Signature Wall in the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts' foyer.

The wall, graced with 202 metallic stars and signatures, was established to mark the 10th anniversary of the Society of the Academy for Performing Arts, which raises funds for the benefit of academy students. About 300 guests turned up, some of whose names feature on the wall.

And so can yours - a $10,000 donation will secure a silver star on the wall for a year, while a gold star can be yours for $50,000. The wall has already raised $2 million.
