    Arab Ball 2020

    • 31 Jan 2020
    • The Gibson Hotel

    Event Description

    The event that we are most proud of, is the Arab Ball. This was our society's first ever ball, and Ireland's first Arab ball. We collaborated with TCD Arabesque Society on this event. We actually had started planning this event over the summer. And after a successful concert, we were feeling confident about the Ball. We held our ball on the 31st of January at The Gibson Hotel, which was our main sponsor. We had many other sponsors as well, who had offered us vouchers that we gave away as prizes. We thought that a Raffle with prizes would be a nice add to the ball. People won vouchers to services such as yoga or beauty services, restaurant vouchers and many more. The overall value of the vouchers was over €500. The event that we are most proud of, is the Arab Ball. This was our society's first ever ball, and Ireland's first Arab ball.

A promo video was filmed to give people an idea of what our ball was going to be like. It was important for us to do so since this was our very first ball, and well the outcome was unreal! The arabic phrase on the poster 'Yalla Neshar Sawa' سوا نسهر يلا means 'Let's party together'! The ball itself was a huge success, exceeding all of our expectations! A three-course dinner was served, and every single attendee had their name written beautifully in Arabic on a blue card which they added to their tables. We were expecting to sell 100 tickets but ended up selling 125! Our live DJ played a mixture of Arabic and International (English, Spanish, French) songs! This really gave the ball an international vibe which everyone enjoyed. People were dancing all night long! We had a very talented photographer who happened to be a friend of ours, Rajit Banerjee, take amazing shots of everyone at the ball. There was a photobooth corner with lots of props that were hand made! We also had a henna corner where attendees were able to get a henna tattoo by the artist! We gave out over 100 vouchers from our sponsors. It was very nice to see the smiles on the winners' faces! Winners were chosen randomly from a box that had everyone's names. Throughout our event, we were able to embrace our cultures in a fun environment. We had Arab, Irish and international students and non-students join us. We even had secondary school students join us. those same students are now very excited to join societies in college! This was a great way to put the Arab Society & Arab Culture on the forefront of the Irish youth scene and encourage intercultural exchange. As promised, we gave out over 100 vouchers from our sponsors. It was very nice to see the smiles on the winners' faces! Winners were chosen randomly from a box that had everyone's names. We really enjoyed working with TCD's Arabesque Society and hope to see the tradition grow with the upcoming committees. Arab Ball was an unforgettable event for both organisers and attendees!
