Why I’m Attending-part 1

Consuls Ball banner
With less than 3 weeks until our major spring gala, the Consuls Ball, we wanted to debut a blog series sharing why YOU should consider attending the Ball, straight from the mouths of past attendees who are returning to celebrate again with us this year.  Our first testimony comes from Linnea Löf, who attended the Ball last year and actually serves on our event committee this year!

“My husband and I attended our first Consuls Ball last year (2010) because we believe in the importance of global educational programs like the Model UN and we want to show our support.  We had such a fabulous time that we definitely plan on attending again!  The event was gorgeous — an elegant location, exquisite food, open bar, great music, lively dancing and international attendees — we felt like we traveled the world in one glorious evening! The Colombian Consul shared our table so we had the opportunity to hear the kind of support she provides to people and organizations from her country here in Boston.

One of the live auction items was a stay at a 5 star resort in Sicily which we bid on and won!   We are excited to share this unique evening with friends this year because we know it will be an international gala not to miss!
