YOU SHALL GO TO THE OTHER BALL

Posted on November 27, 2013

This ball is – as the name already reveals – like no other! The brand new annual music event happening in NYC raises funds for the amazing Arms Around the Child project and we just couldn’t miss out. Nobody less than worshiped producer and artist Mark Ronson approached us about ‘The Other Ball’ and told us the incredible story of the initiative and the team’s work to make positive change in the lives of helpless and exposed children across the world – there was no question regarding our support.

The Other Ball will honor quiet revolutionaries who tirelessly and patiently work to change the world. This year’s inaugural event will pay tribute to Peter Edge, CEO of RCA Records, Bob Roth, Executive Director of the David Lynch Foundation and Mark Seliger, outstanding American photographer and many many more. “This event will feel like having some of the most amazing artists play in your living room,” says Leigh Blake, President of Arms Around the Child. Leigh has put some of the most memorable events together e.g. ‘The Black Ball’ the annual fundraising event for Keep a Child Alive, has featured mini concerts with everyone from Adele to Jay Z. The Other Ball is like its cool little sibling with the incredible efforts of Mark Ronson as Global Ambassador hosting an amazing lineup of the best of today’s voices. Hold on tight now: The Black Keys, A$AP Rocky, Mikky Ekko, Lykke Li and Miguel are going to perform the night away.

On top of all this entertaining we obviously could never support a ball without a witty theme… And as this is not supposed to be your parents’ dinner party we went for: “More black leather than black tie”. The venue will be transformed into a living room experience and the guests will be treated with an eclectic evening of music destined to bring hope to children in need and what could be better than that?

Oh, and did we mention, you can come to! Just enter your details here for the chance to win tickets to the ball that everyone wants to be part of.
