Melville area masquerade ball to benefit Haitian students

February 15, 2018 by  

The Gift of Writing Foundation promises a fun night for those who come out to support an important cause.

The fundraising gala organized by the charitable organization is one of the group’s largest events each year. The Long Island nonprofit has decided to hold a masquerade ball on the evening that also includes a dinner and awards ceremony. All the profit from the evening will go to help improve educational opportunities in impoverished areas around the globe, particularly Haiti.

The Gift of Writing Foundation was founded by Haitian-American Dr. Frantz Dorsainvil, who currently works as the financial director for the non-profit. The group was established to draw more attention to the educational needs of children in areas of unrest or poverty.

The foundation is always accepting new volunteers and donations to the group are appreciated. The donations can be made directly to the group through its Gift of Writing website. Melville business owners that cannot attend the masquerade ball might consider the benefit of purchasing and giving tickets as corporate gifts.

The elegant ball will take place on March 9 at the Westbury Manor at 1100 Jericho Turnpike in Westbury. The evening’s events are scheduled to last from 7:30 pm until midnight. Formal attire is required, and masks are recommended. Tickets are $125.00 each and include admission to the ball, dinner and cocktails, and the awards ceremony.
