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. This was 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 and 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 the auction and IDR 738,600,000 from additional sources. These funds will make a huge difference to the organisations we are supporting this year.

News and updates of exactly how the money raised has tremendously helped each organisation will be posted here and on the event’s Facebook page www.facebook.com/TheBaliBall over the next few months.

Thank you again to our sponsors, donators and guests, this event would not have been possible without your kind support and generosity.

Thank you to our sponsors so far

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.
