The Ubud chapter of Rotary International will host "The U-BOOO-D Halloween Ball and Masquerade Party" on Saturday, October 31, 2009 at Ubud's Arma Resort's Water Garden at 7:00 p.m..
The event is being held to bring fun to the local community and to benefit the The Future for Children Foundation's Muntigunung Water Project - a non-profit organization seeking to secure a clean water supply for the 34 hamlets and over 5,500 residents at Muntigunung, an area high on the rugged North Eastern slopes of Mount Batur on the northern side of the island of Bali. A particularly impoverished corner of the island, resident struggle to survive in this dry and desolate landscape. Poor water supply and little vegetation have resulted in poor nutrition and the prevalence of a number of health ailments, including tuberculosis. Mortality rates are high and incomes low, on the order of 10 cents per day - far below the UN standard of US$1 per day needed to sustain even the most basic existence.
A Night to Remember
Rotarians promise to make the evening memorable with live music; a guest performance by Tom Rigney, the popular American blues electric fiddler; DJ Arne & Guests; fire and belly dance performances; best costume contests; raffles for top-end prizes; scary food and haunted drinks as well as some special "tricks and treats."
To help enliven the atmosphere, costume rentals or purchase will be available on-site. There will be a special children's section with supervised a play area, games, and a piņata.
