Description

The Palm Association Presents The Great Gatsby Charity Ball

After an absence of 4 years The Palm Associations’ annual ball is back! And for the re-launch of this event we have chosen the spectacular theme of The Great Gatsby! The night promises glamour and elegance - A Roaring Twenties Extravaganza and will be held on September 25, 2014 at the Ritz Carlton Hotel & Spa Bahrain.

This highly prestigious event will showcase style and allure in the décor, the venue, the swing music, the elegant Charleston dresses, the dashing Jay Gatsby suits, the cocktails and the vintage cars – all of which will be reminiscent of the period. Guests will be transported back to the 1920’s as they enter the hotel and step into the dazzling world of Gatsby. “We chose to have the Great Gatsby theme as it resonates well with everyone: it's stylish, it’s elegant, it’s fun and it’s very entertaining. People love glamour and everyone wants to be invited to a Gatsby party,” said Mary O’Shaughnessy, Palm Ball Coordinator for The Palm Association.

The main objective to hosting the annual charity ball is to raise much needed funds in order for The Palm Association to continue with the projects they are committed to. A total of BD 100,000 is needed every year to continue funding the Feed-A-Family program, the Project Rebuild and Education programs (more details about the projects available on www.thepalmassociation.com).

“We would like to raise between BD 30,000-40,000 from the ball through sponsorship, auctions, tickets, prizes etc... Our committee is working really hard to obtain sponsorship and we hope that major companies in Bahrain will step forward by donating whatever they can. In return, we can promise an unforgettable evening of fun, glitz and glamour!!” added Maria Sorger, Corporate Communications Officer at The Palm Association.
