Dress Casual Day has developed to become a flagship fundraising event of the Community Chest since its inception in 1993. Each participant donates HK$70 or more (no minimum is set for students) and go to work / school in their favourite casual wear in support of a meaningful cause.
Dress Casual Day is going to celebrate its 30th Anniversary this year. The theme for this year is Wear Your Moment.
The Community Chest encourages everyone from all walks of life to pitch in and show big love with small acts of kindness to the needy in our community. The coming event will be held on Monday, 30 October 2023. We hope to share the precious moment of this important milestone with everyone on the event day.
This year, the Chest is also collaborating with the Hong Kong Police Force’s Child Protection Campaign to enhance public awareness on child protection.
All donations raised through Dress Casual Day 2023, without deduction of administrative costs, will be designated to support "Child Protection and Welfare Services" provided by the Chest’s member agencies to offer assistance to neglected children, and to raise public awareness towards prevention of child abuse for the healthy and holistic development of our next generation.
Part of the Chest’s administrative expenses come from a subsidised grant from our partner-in-charity, The Hong Kong Jockey Club, and return from prudent investment. This allows the Chest to allocate 100% of funds raised to charitable use; this operations model makes the Chest unique among its peers, and helps fulfil its mission to act as trustee of the donors.
