PRLog - Aug. 22, 2012 - BURBANK, Calif. -- Organization Dedicated to Deliver Help, Hope and Humanity to Burmese Children

(New York, NY) Burma Relief, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping impoverished Burmese children, has announced that the Burma Relief Ball will take place on October 23, 2012 in Los Angeles. The goal of the gala is to raise capital to build a 3,000 square foot dormitory for the refugee children of Burma. The dormitory will provide living quarters for Burmese boys currently living at the New Blood Migrant School in Maesot, Thailand, on Burma's border.

These children escaped Burma where they would likely have become child soldiers or sex slaves under the country's repressive military regime. Burma Relief helps give these kids a safe place to go, providing shelter and food to those that would otherwise live on the streets and face crime, disease and death. A dormitory for 60 girls was built at The New Blood School with funds raised by the Burma Relief in March 2011.

The Burma Relief Ball, the first West Coast fundraiser by the organization, will be an engaging and entertaining red carpet event that celebrates the Burmese culture. Held at The Mint in Los Angeles, proceeds will directly benefit these children. The Ball will feature live DJ music, a silent auction, food, beverages, and lots of rich Burmese culture, including an authentic Burmese dance performance by Lay Naing Ei.

"The Burma Ball is just one of the many events we have planned for the coming year to continue our efforts to put structures over these kids' heads and food in their stomachs," explains Jeremy Taylor, Executive Director of Burma Relief. "If we can educate and house this generation, then the future for Burma will be much brighter."

Tickets range from $100-$250 and additional donations are greatly appreciated. For reservations and details, please visit http://burmareliefla.eventbrite.com/. For more information, contact Burma Relief at 212-951-7220 ext.170, or email info@burmarelief.org.
