The American Chamber Of Commerce (AmCham) will be hosting the annual AmCham Ball for the 16th consecutive year on Saturday 21 June 2014 at the Grand Ballroom, Hilton Colombo. The Principal sponsors of the event are HSBC who has come forward for the eighth consecutive year as the Principal sponsor and Dialog who has come forward for the third consecutive year as their Communication partner. The AmCham Ball is one of the most prestigious dinner dancers and a highlight in Colombo’s Social Calendar. The event is a highly anticipated Black tie affair with a five- course sit down dinner that offers a mesmerising ambience featuring a few of Colombo’s spectacular entertainment acts and a host of prizes and surprises. The occasion will be graced by US Ambassador to Sri Lanka and Maldives Michele J. Sison and many other dignitaries from both within and outside the Chamber’s corporate membership. As in the past part proceeds of the AmCham Ball will be donated to a nominated charity. The nominated charity this year is ‘Real Men Don’t Abuse’ under the Birendra Serika Siriwardhana initiative (BSSI). AmCham Sri Lanka is pleased to support BSSI, following the success of their first concert and youth awareness programs on gender-based violence. With the success of the 15th Ambassador’s Ball ‘New York New York’ each year this event continues to impress all with an exciting new theme which is introduced. This Years theme ‘We are the World’ is aimed at creating awareness on the need to protect our planet. The message we hope to carry is that Planet Earth is our home and must be taken care of and as custodians of this planet we have a role to play in protecting it for future generations. Guests are bound to have a night to remember with music that will keep their toes tapping from dusk to dawn. Book your tables early in order to not miss out on this exclusive event.
