A big thank you to our bronze sponsors: Bali Adventure Tours and PrimaFit, our food & beverage sponsors: Indoguna Bali, Lotus Food Services, Classic Fine Foods and Bali Wein, our event production sponsor: Focus Productions and to all who supported and attended the 4th annual Bali Ball on Saturday, 2 August 2014 and made it another huge success! We’re extremely proud to announce that this year, we have raised a record-breaking IDR 1,836,000,000 for Bali Kids, Bali Children Foundation, Yayasan Samaritania and Yayasan Bumi Sehat, which is more than any other charity fundraiser in Bali has ever done.

The night started off with a fabulous cocktail, fire dance and fireworks reception at WooSky in W Retreat & Spa Bali – Seminyak, with bespoke Bali Ball cocktails and canapés, plus acoustic Spanish guitar music by Tah Riq. Followed by sensational five-course fine dining with free flow wine in W’s Great Room. MC Ross Smith introduced the guests into the evening’s program. Amongst the 175 guests were Magda Hutagalung, Krisdayanti, Joe Taslim and Farah Quinn.

The exciting evening also featured a raffle prize draw and an exclusive auction with prizes including a perfect pair of rare white diamond earrings donated by Jemme (Fine jewellery brand & joint organizer), Alila Hotels package, a return trip to Amsterdam with 3 nights stay at Hotel Pulitzer with IDR 10,000,000 spending money. Following the auction was a grand finale performance by glamorous jazz singer and retro starlet, Kitty La Roar and her sidekick, pianist Nick of Time, all the way from London. The night ended with an after party as the guests danced the night away in the Great Room.

This year’s Bali Ball has truly been the best one yet. Our purpose is to give back to Bali and help disadvantaged children and families. We’ve raised IDR 425,000,000 from ticket sales, IDR 72,400,000 from raffle prizes, IDR 600,000,000 from auction and IDR 738,600,000 from additional sources. These funds will make a huge difference to the organisations we are supporting this year.

The Bali Ball would like to express our thanks to our wonderful sponsors for 2014 so far – Primafit, Bali Adventure Tours, Elephant Safari Park & Lodge and Ubud Adventure & Function Centre.

Without your generosity the event simply would not happen and we could not continue providing this life-changing funding to disadvantaged children and families across Bali.

It still isn’t too late to give back to Bali by becoming a Bali Ball sponsor.

Thank you to all who sponsored, supported and attended the third annual Bali Ball on Friday 16th August, for making it a wonderful event. The spectacular evening, which is being hailed as the best Bali Ball yet, has raised over a staggering IDR 1,200,000,000 so far and is still accepting donations.

One hundred percent of these funds have gone directly towards three Bali-based charities: Yayasan Samaritania, Bali Kids and Yayasan Bumi Sehat.

Kick-starting with a glamorous cocktail reception and fireworks at Woosky, the event’s 125 guests were treated to a five-course meal with wines in the W’s Great Room. A speech by CNN Hero of the Year 2011 and founder of Bumi Sehat, Robin Lim, was interspersed by performances from mesmerizing UK jazz singer Kitty La Roar and band who included renowned bassist Ito Kurdhi.

Another highlight of the evening was a live auction with exlclusive ‘Best of Bali’ prizes, including a surprise lot – a necklace, donated by Ibu Titiek Suharto who attended the event, which sold for IDR 197,000,000.

We are currently speaking with the charities’ various founders and directors about projects that funds raised from The Bali Ball 2013 will support. Amongst these projects include an orphanage build at Yayasan Samaritania, purchase of a minibus for Bali Kids and funds towards a new medical clinic at Yayasan Bumi Sehat.

Updates about the charities and their projects will be posted on to the event’s Facebook page:  www.facebook.com/TheBaliBall, and here on the website over the next few weeks.

The Bali Ball 2012

A fantastic evening full of glitz, glamour and giving, The Bali Ball 2012 was able to raise a magnificent amount for the Bali Kids charity. This money has since gone towards building the charity’s life-changing Medical, Dental & Care Centre, which was completed in July 2012. This would not have been possible without the generous support of our fantastic sponsors and wonderful guests. Thank you all and we hope to see you all again in 2013!
