Raising US$ 136,000 for the Bali Kids Charity last year, The Bali Ball 2013: The Best of Bali aims to raise even more funds during this years party.
In attendance at the W Spa & Resort Bali-Seminyak this year will be the doyens of Island fashion, leading artists, designers, representatives of leading hotels and other top brands from across the island.
This year’s Bali is organized and hosted by Bali’s Jemme Jewellery and W Spa & Retreat Bali – Seminyak.
The venue is the Great Room of the W Spa & Resort.
Lavish food and drink will be complemented by a keynote address by CNN Hero of the Year 2011, Robin Lim and a memorable fireworks display.
Also not to be missed is a specially panned five-course meal with paired wines, a live auction, exclusive ‘Best of Bali’ prizes and entertainment by cabaret singer Kitty La Roar.
Commenting on the event, W Spa & Retreat Bali’s general manager, Craig Seaward, said: “This year feels more exciting than ever. By working with the best on the island we want to develop The Bali Ball into a non-profit brand, which will not only be active for one annual event a year, but will be involved in raising funds and building a network of supporters always.”
Jemme Jewellery’s head designer, Luke Stockley, added: ‘There’s so much talent in Bali and also a lot of success, so it feels right to give back by bringing together the finest that this beautiful island has to offer in a celebration of ‘The Best of Bali’.”
This year’s Bali Ball will be raising funds for three worthy charities:
- Bali Kids- offering a special place for disadvantaged children. In addition to providing short, medium and long term shelter in their orphanage for up to 30 children, the Bali Kids facility is also open to sick Indonesian children of all religions living in Bali. Parents from poor or economically challenged communities bring their children to Bali Kids for medical attention and treatment. Last year almost 6000 children received assistance from [Bali Kids Website].
- Bumi Sehat - runs two community health centers in Bali and Aceh, Indonesia providing 17,000 health consultations for both children and adults each year. Midwifery services to ensure gentle births are at the heart of Bumi Sehat and their clinics welcome approximately 600 new babies into the world each year. Bumi Sehat is dedicated to reducing maternal and child morbidity and mortality and supporting community health.[Bumi Sehat Website]
- Yayasan Samaritiania - was founded in 2004 by Eko Iswanto to assist street children who were sheltering on a rubbish tip in Sanur. Today this charity provides schooling, health services and nutritious staples for 192 children ranging from 4 to 16 years of age.

is traditionally a sell-out and tickets are available on a first-come-first-serve basis at Rp. 2,500,000 (US$250) each or Rp. 25 million (US$2,500) for a table of ten.
