On February 11, 2017 the Alabang Ladies International Group held its Annual Charity Ball and took it’s over 150 guests into a vision of one thousand and one night.
The 2017 Ball committee put a lot of effort into preparations to bring ARABIAN NIGHTS to life. And it was worth it!!!
The huge success of the event can not only be measured in the over 1 million pesos raised for ALIG charities but also the great fun all participants had.
The Band “Manila Sky” entertained during dinner time with Arabian music and the talented Belly Dancers from “Snake Charmer” did not only perform but got a lot of inspired guests to join them on the stage.
For all those who afterwards didn’t want to dance the night away with DJ Bobby, cocktail concoctions (sponsored by Diageo), wine (sponsored by Forth & Tay) and draft beer (sponsored by Perfect Pint) were available at the Bar.
A Shisha Lounge and Dilmah Tea Lounge provided perfect retreat options.
For the good cause guests could participate in raffles or bid at Live and Silent Auctions. Emcee and Auctioneer for the night Jerome McCuin did not only entertain the guests and cause lots of laugher, together with his buddy “Sheikh” Greg they did such a great job as to start the Live Auction by auctioneering off a P1000 bill for P4000!
Generous main sponsors (for prizes and in kind) were Capitol One, Fluor and Etihad Airline. Other big sponsors are Atmosphere Resorts and Spa, KLM Airline, Asian Eye Institute, Sunset at Aninuan Resort and of course The Palms Country Club (venue for the night and provider of an amazing Arabian inspired buffet). Many more donated prizes or supported the Charity Ball directly.
