The Hong Kong Cancer Fund throws one of the best balls in town - and this year will be no exception. Chairwoman Sally Lo expected many to wear what she called 'cyber couture' in line with the ball's futuristic theme, 'Galactica - The Next Dimension'. Tables had been selling quite well, considering the economic downturn, for $100,000 and $50,000 - lower than last year's prices. Some tables were available, she said. However, Sally said the event on January 16 at the Regent Hotel was only a prelude to the party the fund was planning to ring in the new millennium. 'We are organising the biggest party in Hong Kong to celebrate the millennium,' she said, but declined to give details. Jennifer Tose, co-chairwoman of the fund-raising committee, said it had been hard to raise money this year. 'Corporations and individuals have smaller budgets and have become more selective,' she said. Jennifer hoped this year's event would raise from $4 million to $5 million.
