The Sparkle Gala By Emir

At the very first Sparkle Gala committee meeting, Sarah Brooke, the founder of The Sparkle Foundation, declared with determination, “We want to raise a million dirhams!”And thus, the Sparkle Gala Squad was born—a dedicated group committed to meeting every week to turn that goal into reality. With the prestigious Armani Hotel as our venue, nestled at the foot of the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest tower, the stage was set for an extraordinary event on December 8th, bringing together over 300 kind-hearted individuals. With everyone in the Sparkle squad assigned tasks and ready to lend a helping hand whenever needed, my role extended beyond spreading the word about The Sparkle Foundation through my various social media platforms. Drawing upon my 20 years in Dubai, I worked to gather lots and lots of auction and raffle prizes, ranging from lavish beauty treatments to stunning weekend stay at Turin Castle in Scotland. The evening itself was nothing short of magical, filled with live music by Mbaile, a touching speech by Sarah Brooke, heartfelt video messages from the children in Malawi, and, of course, the exhilarating auction. And the moment of truth: Did we reach our million-dirham goal? You bet we did! In fact, we exceeded it, raising a grand total of 1,003,000 dirhams! Stay tuned for our next adventure in 2024, and if you’re curious to learn more about The Sparkle Foundation and how you can lend your support, visit their website for all the details. Let’s keep the sparkle alive and make a difference together!
