There are only four days to the illustrious Abu Dhabi Dream Ball, set to take place on the evening of Thursday, November 17th 2022, at the W Hotel, Yas Island. The fourth edition of the Abu Dhabi Dream Ball welcomes a star-line up of international hosts, presenters, performers and partners in Abu Dhabi. This year's event will raise funds to support Anera, a charity that has helped refugees and vulnerable communities in the Middle East since 1968.
The night will begin with an award ceremony and a speech by H.E. Sheikh Nahayan Mabarak Al Nahayan. Lebanese presenter Raya Abirached will be hosting the stage, followed by a speech delivered by best-selling author Deepak Chopra and live performances from one of Britain's most successful singer-songwriters Emeli Sandé.
The event will be attended by international celebrities, including Elie Saab Jr, Hadley Gamble, John Mikel Obi, and F1 drivers Zhou Guanyu and Valtteri Bottas.
The evening will be hosted by co-chairs Nadine Maalouf, Nadia Sehweil and Asma Al Fahim. The event is a concept created by Sawtouna, an Abu Dhabi-based committee working together voluntarily to support and raise funds for meaningful charitable causes in partnership with Harper's Bazaar Arabia.
