The Kids Had a Ball in Bali

2nd Bali Ball Raises More than US$130,000 for Bali Kids Orphanage


(7/22/2012)

The 2nd Bali Ball in aid of the Bali Kids Foundation exceeded all expectations as both a fun evening out and as a fundraiser for the orphanage and hospital foundation in Mengwi, Bali.



200 guests in formal dress enjoyed a six-course meal presented by W Retreat and Spa Bali. Music from leading international and domestic DJs, a vocal performance by Diana Rosa and Martin Devnev, a fashion show from Dindarella and a special musical appearance by children from Bali Kids helped to round out an enjoyable evening.

Acting as master of ceremonies for the evening was Yoke Darmawan, while Stuart Smith of Bali Kids served as auctioneer. Brenton Whittaker shared with guests a presentation on the background and important work performed by the Yayasan Anak Bali (Bali Kids Foundation).

The Carry For Kids Project, established in 2005 in conjunction with Bali Kids, was established to provide quality medical care for Bali children. The medical-center-based project provides a clean, safe environment for orphans requiring special care and medical attention. Hospital appointments, preparations and funding for surgery are provided by Bali Kids. An additional vehicle was donated in 2009 to enable Bali Kids to service the orphanages more efficiently. Land was recently purchased to build a new dental surgery center, to be operated by the Australian dental charity Yayasan Senyum (Smile Foundation), staffed by volunteer dentists from Australia and Holland.

The children are also provided lessons on computers, English, mathematics and music, while older children are given vocational training opportunities around Bali. Three of the orphans now studying in Australia on scholarships. The project’s long-term plans are to offer scholarships to study dentistry, medicine, nursing, accounting and computer studies to Bali orphans.

The Bali Ball managed to raise more than US$138,000 – money that will be used to improve the lives of a great number of children in Bali.
