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 exclusive ‘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.
