Well Cinderella, the annual Stormy’s charity ball for the Hong Kong Sea School is March 5th, 2016.
As in THIS Saturday.
Are you ready?
No, we didn’t think you would be… So to help you prepare for one amazing night of food, booze, and charitable donations, we’ve provided you with 5 easy steps to get yourself in top form for the big night:
Step 1: Buy your tickets
Obviously a big step here and by far the easiest. All you need to do is send an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the number of tickets you need. At only $1,000 HKD a person (all of which goes to the Hong Kong Sea School and covers your food and the open bar for the night), this night of shenanigans is a steal compared to what you might pay elsewhere in the city for much less.
Step 2: Check out the auction items and raffle prizes
Again, another easy one here. The list below highlights all of the fabulous items that will be auctioned off during the night… and did we mention the great raffle prizes you could win just for showing up?? Check them out, pick your favorites, cross your fingers, and come prepared to bid big.
Step 3: Put on your dancin’ shoes
When was the last time you got dressed up for a black tie event?? Well now is your chance. Ladies, put on your favorite little black dress or use the event as an excuse to get a gorgeous ball gown. Gentlemen, grab your tuxes or fancy suits. It’s always exciting to see friends in the paddling community all dressed up for an evening! And the guests aren’t the only ones getting a makeover… The Sea School gym, the venue for the event, will also be decked out for the occasion!
Step 4: Eat, drink, and be merry!
We once again have the Butcher’s Club catering the event so be prepared to have an amazing meal. There will also be an assortment of beverages, all included with the ticket price with the exception of some “specialty” items that will be sold to raise some additional funds for the Sea School. We were also lucky enough to secure DJ Gruv Derald Reynolds and Tamby Chan as the MC for the evening!
Step 5: Be generous
Over the course of the night, between the food and the dancing, we all need to remember why we are there in the first place: to raise money for a very worth cause.
The Hong Kong Sea School in Stanley was established in 1946 and has been an essential part of the community ever since. As a boarding school for underprivileged boys in the city, the Sea School provides a encouraging environment for the boys to learn and grow up. Since the first event, the Stormy’s Charity Ball has raised over $870,000 HKD and this year we hope to raise that total to $1,000,000! These funds go towards activities and learning opportunities for the boys, with a focus on water sports. But to hit our goal this year, we need you! So get your tickets, check out the auction items, and get ready for one amazing night!
See you on Saturday!
