This year Morgan Stanley’s OSC fundraising focus is on Po Leung Kuk, the firm's 2016-2017 Hong Kong core charity partner. Via an internal website, Morgan Stanley employees sponsored members of senior management in Hong Kong to sing Christmas carols in public to raise funds.
In addition to the Directors’ Choir, this year the Firm is also raising funds via its Charity Bake Auction (December 4 – 8). Employees in Hong Kong were invited to bake their favorite cakes and desserts to attract online bids from colleagues. Bids for each baked item were treated as donations and all proceeds benefitted Po Leung Kuk.
