The Changing Young Lives Foundation threw its annual fund-raising dinner party at the Armani Bar last month.

The Festival of Trees 2009 was chaired by Jim and Sally Thompson, with all the money raised at the gala donated to the foundation's projects to help underprivileged children in Hong Kong and on the mainland.

Amazonian carnival girls cavorted and cajoled a few enthusiastic patrons into some samba moves. Seen were Allan and Carol Murray, Mark Brisson, Marisa Zeman, Greg and Cecilia Deeb, Jill Gallie and Malia Hoffman.
