Kidz Horizon Charity Gala Ball at Shangri La Hotel


Kidz Horizon Appeal 

Kidz Horizon Appeal (http://kidzhorizon.sg/) was established in 2004 as a charitable organization that attends specifically to an unfortunate, and often helpless group of people in our society - Children who are suffering from chronic or terminal illness. Since it was launched, it has adopted the KK Hospital Health Endowment Fund (KKHHEF) and over half a million is raised annually to help children with chronic illness including cancer and HIV. 

Kidz Horizon Appeal organizes a few events yearly to increase awareness of their cause and raise donations. This particular Gala Ball that I attended as held at Shangri La Hotel Ballroom. The moment you entered the ballroom area, the whole place elegantly decorated in a British styled theme. The walls were covered with images of Big Ben, London Eye, London Subway, and Street Art Graffiti. We even had a Classic British Solider standing in his booth, guarding The Buckingham Palace (Ballroom's door). 


I have always loved kids and www.SaraShantelle.com have collaborated with The Singapore Children Society, whereby 10% of all online sales would be donated to them. Knowing my soft spot for kids, Karen Gian decided to invite me to this kids charity event. Each dinner seat cost from S$300 up till what ever amount you would like to donate.

The guests who attended the event were dressed in their James Bond suits and long elegant gowns. We also had a Best Dressed competition whereby a tall man dressed as a Charlie Chaplin look a like, carrying an black umbrella won the award. He enetertained us by doing a little dance before collecting his prize on stage.

In order to raise more funds, there was a Christie's Auction, whereby a lot of Fine Art and Limited Edition Watches, were placed on auction to the affluent guests.


The VIP for this event was our Deputy Prime Mister - Mr Teo Chee Hean. He was really tall. I am 1.66cm without heels, and I wore my Prada Glass Heels which was around 4 inches high that night. Yet, I still look short, standing beside him. I spoke to him a little and he was friendly and warm.


I also made a cute new friend that night, called Eli T. A premier Electronic-Pop Artist who has been nominated for "Best Singer/Songwriter" & "Best Solo Artist" in 2012, in Los Angeles California. 

The event was memorable as everything was organized with great designer taste and class. The food served was delicious and service was impeccable. It is highly impressive that Shangri La Hotel managed to maintain their high food quality despite having more than 1000 VIP guests that night. Karen Gian was dressed in a beautiful red gown and the ever gorgeous Rosalynn Tay was dressed in Alexander McQueen.
