A huge star-studded ball has been announced in Abu Dhabi with all proceeds being donated to charity.
The Abu Dhabi Dream Ball aims to educate over 5,000 refugee children in Jordan, and the guest list includes celebrities, UAE dignitaries and even royalty.
The gala dinner will take place in support of UNICEF at Emirates Palace on Thursday January 31 and will include a live auction of original artwork by international artist eL Seed.
Held under the patronage of H.E. Noura Al Kaabi, UAE Minister of Culture & Knowledge Development, the inaugural event plans to provide children with access to learning, skills development and opportunities to empower their future.
Celebrities include the likes of TV personality Raya Abirached, Lebanese-Armenian musician and composer Guy Manoukian and UNICEF Ambassador Mona Zaki, although the royalty in attendance is being kept under wraps.
The glamorous fundraiser, hosted by Sawtouna in partnership with ITP Media Group, will see 500 VIPs descend on the capital to be hosted by TV personality Raya Abirached alongside Harper’s Bazaar Arabia’s Rosemin Madhavji
Entertainment on the night include pianist Manoukian, Egyptian-Scottish classical musicians Sarah and Laura Ayoub, nine-year old Arabs Got Talent winner Emanne Beasha, Emirati singer Fayez Al Saeed, international singer Layla Kardan and the 55-piece Emirates Youth Symphony Orchestra.
You can get your tickets for the swanky event for Dhs50,000 for a VVIP table of ten or it’s Dhs2,500 for regular seats, available at 800tickets.com.
