The 11th Edition of the Maskarade ball, in honour of the Farha foundation, will be held this year at Marché Bonsecours on Thursday, February 18, 2010. The theme this time around is about the future, a future without Aids hopefully.
Presided by Joseph Mimran & Kimberly Newport-Mimran (of Joe Fresh and Pink Tartan fame), this special event will once again be the most glamorous fundraising party in town with local celebrities, ceo's, fashionistas and other local scenesters attending. Sponsors of the event include Joe Fresh, Buonanotte restaurant, Pink Tartan, Bice restaurant, Rogers, Clin d'oeil magazine and many more.
Note that there is a pretty strict dress code as it is a ball! The dress code is as follow:
Gentlemen: evening attire and black mask
Ladies: black, white or red evening attire, white mask or fan
Ticket - $250
