The event celebrated the Re-opening of Tang Court, eponymously named after the family of Professor Grace Tang Wai-king, Dean of Medicine 1998-2001, for a generous donation from her and her husband Dr Luk Kwok-fai. Without this plot of land, the new and modern Faculty Administration Wing would not have been built and in use to spare more space to meet the needs of the growing student body.

The plaque unveiling ceremony was officiated by Professor Tang, Dr Luk, Professor Leung, and Ms Priscilla Wong Pui-sze, Council Chairman of The University of Hong Kong.
