Invitation: International Studies Charity Ball on May 13

The Charity Ball Committee of the study association BASIS would like to invite International Studies students and staff members to the ball on the 13th of May, at the Carlton Beach Hotel in Scheveningen. This year’s theme will be “Masquerade Ball", dress code: black tie.

The Charity Ball is an annual event organised by students of International Studies to end the academic year, whilst raising money for a charity close to our hearts together with fellow students, tutors and professors. Last year we raised almost 2000 euros for the White Helmets, this year we will try to raise as much money as possible for Echo100plus.


Echo 100plus is an Austrian non-profit organization, which is working in several refugee camps in Greece to distribute food, water and sanitary goods. As these refugees have little opportunity to work on their education in these camps, we are now working on establishing an educational project for students of our age together with this organization. The more money we raise, the more refugees we can help. All profit of the event will go directly to this cause. More information can be found on their website.

Programme (17.30 - 2.00)

The Charity Ball includes a formal dinner (optional) and a party. During the dinner, there will be a performance by the BASIS Music Committee, guest speakers who will address the topic of the charity, and the annual auction.
