Hong Kong Pride Parade 2008 Financial Report

Apology and Gratitudes Declaration
  1. Hong Kong Pride Parade 2008 Organizing Committee (“The Committee”) has cooperated with various organizations for the first time this year. We would like to apologize for our delay in giving our financial report. In 2009, we would continue to use a serious attitude to face our financial issues, and publicly issue our financial report within 3 months of the parade.
  2. Two weeks before the parade commenced in 2008, we still miss $20,000 of production fee, the Committee would like to issue an apology and gratitude in this regard. Because of this issue, the Committee has greatly utilized the volunteers’ effort in all the preparation work and logistic work of the Parade. The utilization areas include webpage design and management, all graphics design, translation, stage production, music production, publicity, fundraising, souvenirs production, human resource management, documentary work of Parade. We greatly apologize for this great demand of our volunteers and would like to extend our sincere gratitudes to all the involved parties.
