The 7th Annual SKAL Charity Ball set to be held on September 13, 2003, has adopted the thought-provoking theme of "trashed and tasteless" for this year's event.
The venue for the dinner-dance, considered by many to be one of the leading events on the local social calendar, will be the Ballroom of the Discovery Kartika Plaza Hotel in South Kuta. As in past years, proceeds generated from the evening ticket sales, auctions, and raffles will be used to assist selected local charities and support tourism scholarship funds. Companies in Bali and the region interested in contributing prizes or sponsoring part of the evening are encouraged to contact the organizers.
Trashed and Tasteless
When approached by balidiscovery.com to elaborate on the theme for this year's Ball, Ms. Gigi Van Kuijk, Chairperson for the Ball, remained fairly non-committal, choosing to only shake her head knowingly when we suggested an episode for Ozzy Osbourne, a remake of the "Rocky Horror Show," or Madonna on a bad hair day as possible guideposts in choosing one's persona for the big night. Later, in a more forthcoming mood, Gigi said "this is an opportunity for you to let your hair down, relax, have a good time and forget about the worries of yesterday. We have all a very busy and difficult year, so we see this is an opportunity for welcoming everyone to come and join us for a great evening of fun - a chance to have a good time and LET'S GET LOUD in the wildest, craziest outfits - fun, daring, bold."
