event program (Summary)
That's the key
Listen to the newest a cappella group AT cal poly as they sing original song arrangements of songs you know and love.
Soldotna is known as 3 things: a place in alaska, the russian word for soldier, and a neo-folk/indie-pop band from northern california. Enjoy their music as they perform for the ball.
The witty Nelson Lin takes the stage as he opens the night with some stand-up comedy that is even funnier than his infamous cal poly confessions page comments.
Dr. Hill Krishnan
Growing up in india, professor hill krishnan has first-hand experience with the reality of the water crisis. Hear his personal testimony at charity ball.
AT THE ORIGINAL CHARITY: BALL EVENT IN NEW YORK, THE WATERWALK PUTS THE ATTENDEE INTO THE SHOES OF A PERSON WHO WALKS for water by walking ACROSS THE WALKWAY AS HOW A PERSON WOULD LUG THE JERRY CAN BACK TO HIS OR HER FAMILY. FOR a number of people THAT WALK, A COMPANY OR DONOR WOULD DONATE A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF MONEY TOWARD THE CAMPAIGN.
Take pictures at the booth with jerry cans and other silly props. photographers will also shoot throughout the night, and pictures will be available after the event on this website.
