Harper's BAZAAR Arabia and non-profit organization Sawtouna present the first Abu Dhabi Dream Ball in support of UNICEF on 31 January at the Emirates Palace. The highly-anticipated evening of fundraising, held under the patronage of UAE Minister of Culture & Knowledge H.E. Noura Al Kaabi, will welcome 500 VIP guests for an exclusive gala dinner, regional entertainment, and a live art auction. Hosts for the evening will be TV personality Raya Abirached and BAZAAR's own contributing editor Rosemin Madhavji.
In benefit of over 5,000 refugee children in Jordan affected by conflict, BAZAAR will host high-profile guests from the region to contribute to the cause, including members of the royal families, UAE dignitaries, regional celebrities and personalities, and UNICEF ambassadors. Funds raised at the event will go towards gender-responsive services and opportunities to fulfil their rights - all through the #NoLostGeneration initiative.
The entertainment line-up will include Lebanese-Armenian pianist Guy Manoukian, the Ayoub sisters, and nine-year-old Arab's Got Talent classical singer Emanne Beasha, Emirati singer Fayez Al Saeed, global singer Layla Kardan and the 55-piece Emirates Youth Symphony Orchestra.
