We had a great time down at the 3rd Butterfly Ball at Es Vive last night. The food was great, the atmosphere was lively and everyone seemed to enjoy it. Keith Holden put on his “porno king” alter-ego as the auctioneer and was hilarious. Halfway through it did rain so we all went inside the poolside bar. Keith stood on the bar to conduct the auction but managed to smash one of the lights in the process – the bar staff were not amused but Jason (the owner) didn’t mind. The rain only lasted about 15 minutes or so and then it was back outside for the rest of the auction.

Prior to the main auction Chas Smith ex of Madness treated us to an acoustic set including a wonderful 5 minute poem. Our friend Lorna videoed the night so we’re hoping to put that up shortly. Last year raised over 12,000 euros but going by some of the lots we confidently predict that that will be exceeded this year. All the proceeds will go to benefit APNEEF, the island’s local association for children with special needs in Ibiza and Formentera which cares for almost 100 local children of all ages, all with a wide variety of both mental and physical disabilities.

We easily got outbid for the Messi signed Barcelona shirt and the Sid Vicious painting and we did try for the signed Zidane, Ronaldo and Guti shirts. Afterwards we all went to the inside bar which continued on till sometime this morning…
