Dear Citizens of The World,


Take your calendars and mark Friday December 15 in bright red because that's the night of ESN Utrecht’s Christmas Gala, with a touch of red.
What to expect of this glamorous party?

Two kinds of tickets will be available:
1. The first ticket includes both dinner and the gala party. As our guest, you will have the choice between a meat, fish, or vegetarian meal made freshly by the kitchen staff. This ticket also includes a dessert, five drinks and your ticket to the gala party for just 30 euros! 
2. The second ticket is a gala only ticket, including four drinks for 15 euros.

Don’t just mark December 15th bright red in your calendar, also dress like it! We have collaborated with the Red Cross and therefore made the theme ‘a touch of red’. Get out your hot-red tie and burning red dress and set the dance floor alight with your dance moves!

Doors for the gala will open at 11PM with DJ ÆVON for the tunes! He’s ESNs resident DJ, so a great party is guaranteed! Can’t wait? Check out his Soundcloud here and give his Facebook page some support.


L O C A T I O N & T I M E
Stairway to Heaven is the place to be! It’s close to Tivoli and Centraal Station. For dinner, arrive between 7:30 and 8PM. At 11PM, doors will open for the gala and everybody will get a sparkling glass of bubbles! Be on time if you hate the line though! Everybody has to be in before midnight.

In conflict areas, such as Nigeria and the Democratic Republic of Congo, but also after natural disasters like in Nepal, millions of children are forced to live separately from their parents, brothers or sisters. The money we and the Red Cross raise will go directly to Serious Request.
3FM Serious Request is an annual radio and multimedia fundraising event developed and hosted by Dutch NPO subsidiary 3FM since 2004. 3FM Serious Request was created as a means of raising money for charity and meeting audience expectations of public service values. Three 3FM DJs lock
themselves up in a glass studio for six days. During those days, they eat nothing, broadcast live radio and television 24 hours a day and can be followed online. The concept has grown each consecutive year and has spread beyond the Netherlands. In the week before Christmas, together with all of the Netherlands, NPO 3FM collects money to reunite parents and children. Worldwide, more than four million family members have lost each other due to a disaster or conflict. With the proceeds of 3FM Serious Request, Red Cross helpers trace missing children, restore contact with their family and bring them back home.

Throughout the night, our friends from the Red Cross will make fresh toasties for a small price and the bar will sell a red charity shot (you might remember it from the ESN Student Night at Poema!)
Profits go directly to 3FM Serious Request and the Red Cross. We can’t wait! Be there or be square.


Yours truly,
The ESN Gala Committee 2017-2018
