A Filipina domestic helper was among the 20 second-prize winners of credit cards pre-loaded with $100,000  in the lucky draw for vaccinated residents sponsored by the Sino Group of companies’ Ng Teng Fong Charitable Foundation and Chinese Estate Holdings.

The information was released in a statement published by the organizers last night, which came with a picture of the 35-year-old chef who won the grand prize, a $10.8 million brand-new flat in Grand Central, Kwun Tong.

The young chef, surnamed Lee, received his prize at a presentation ceremony yesterday, Sept 15. The first-time property owner who is currently renting a flat in Cheung Sha Wan went to see his new home right away.

Lee said he got vaccinated to support the city’s economic recovery as the pandemic has affected many restaurants.

"I truly believe vaccination is the most effective way to protect myself and my family, and this win is certainly a pleasant yet unexpected surprise," he said.

"I shall continue to encourage my friends and family to get vaccinated, and to prepare ourselves for returning to normality and travel again."


The statement also said arrangement had been made with the second-prize winners to redeem their prizes of a credit card with a stored value of $100,000 each after verifying their eligibility.

The winners, 13 males and 7 females, are said to come from a diverse background, including a Filipina DH, a manicurist, medical practitioner, pastry chef, and two retirees. The youngest winner is a French student.

The FDH was easily identified from a list of HK ID card numbers released by the organizers previously. The lucky Filipina's HKID card starts with WX111 and her mobile phone number ends with 0687.

The organizers are offering to raffle off another flat, worth about $12 million in the phase 2 of the lucky draw, but on condition that at least five million Hong Kong people get their first shot of a Covid-19 vaccinated by Sept 30.

The condition is not likely going to be met, however, as the daily vaccination figure has fallen drastically over the past several days. The latest tally shows 4.367 million qualified people have taken their first jab, with an average daily intake of just 10,000.

The prizes in the Phase 2 Lucky Draw include 20 scholarships with a value of $200,000 each, sponsored by NTFCF, for vaccinated residents aged between 12 and 18 years old.
