    The 3rd Butterfly Ball
    Weds 8th October 2008..
    Hotel Es Vive, Ibiza…
    in aid of APNEEF(ibiza’s disabled children association)

    With Ibiza Summer 2008 heading for its peak, its time once again to think Charity Fund Raising by way of the 3rd Annual Butterfly Ball.

    This year, the organisers of the event (Jill Canney & Elena Sanchez) have, after careful consideration, chosen local Ibiza association for disabled children, APNEEF as the charity of choice, with all monies raised at The Butterfly Ball being donated to that particular worthy cause.

    APNEEF attends nearly 100 local children with severe physical and mental disabilities and is in dire need of proper funding and support. So, lets help them, folks.

    The Butterfly Ball 2007

    Thanks to an amazing circle of friends, last year’s event was an outstanding success and raised nearly 12k for Macmillan Cancer Support and it’s Spanish equivalent, AECC. Nearly 7k of that came by way of the Celebrity Auction with signed and personal items having been donated from the likes of David Beckham, Steven Gerrard, Pau Gasol, Mark Ronson, Kaiser Chiefs, Pete Tong, Marcos Torres, Gary Cook, FatboySlim, Manumission, Ibiza Rocks, Hed Kandi and so on and on and on amongst many other internationally recognised names. The event took place in Hotel Es Vive and received much appraisal and press coverage.

    Heres a link to last year’s Ball.. which should serve to give you a fair idea of the overall concept:

    The Butterfly Ball, 8th October 2008

    This year’s Ball will once again take place in Hotel Es Vive and donations are already coming in for auction by various well known personalities from the worlds of music, theatre, art and sport.

    Whilst details on the event are currently being finalized, so far, so good- The Butterfly Ball is shaping up nicely and tickets will soon be on sale. The night will follow pretty much the same formula as last year with a few extras- champagne reception, dinner, auction, live acts, a bit of charidee karaoke, DJs and a bit of an all round knees up, and all for a great island cause (these kids really do need help)

    Wanna Help?
    All donations gratefully received! If you have something lurking round your house/office/garage that you think might raise a bob or two, let us know.

    We are also looking for collaborators, sponsors and investors to help take this fundraiser to the next level. If you or your company would like to make a cash donation directly to APNEEF, that would also be very welcomed.

    Volunteers wanted..we couldn’t do this without the help of  the many generous individuals involved. Many hands make light work, both pre event and on the night itself.

    Bums on Seats…on the night of the event. Not only an excuse to dress up and dine out, The Butterfly Ball is shaping up to be another great night’s merriment and of course, to hammer it home, ‘all for a good cause’.

    You wanna help? Help us spread the word; give us a mention in your magazine/newspaper…tell your friends…buy a ticket…ask your famous friend to donate something for auction…be there on the night…overall, support us, the Butterfly Ball and APNEEF..
