Photos from last night’s Butterfly Ball

October 9th, 2008

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…

closing weekend

October 2nd, 2008

We ran into our good friend Vaughan (Rock Bar, Funky Room) yesterday who told us that the The Rock Bar in Ibiza port is having a closing party on Saturday night – we couldn’t refuse the invite – we’re sure it will be messy. Over the summer a number of celebs have popped in for beers: Kate Moss, Maxi Jazz etc. Later the Funky Room at Pacha will also have their closing pary.

Before that though in the afternoon there’s a press call for the 3rd Butterfly Ball at Es Vive next week where they’ll be unveiling the items up for auction etc. Of course later it’s Amnesia’s closing party then the mother of them all Space’s closing party.

3rd Butterfly Ball for APNEEF at Es Vive

September 28th, 2008

butterfly ball at es vive
We’re not big fans of simply repeating press releases but in this instance we’re more than happy to

Chas Smash live at

‘The 3rd Butterfly Ball’
Weds 8th October, 19h
In aid of APNEEF
Hotel Es Vive
Calle Roman Ferrer, Figuertas, Ibiza

PRESS CALL

With just over one week to go before Ibiza’s annual Charity Fundraiser ‘The Butterfly Ball’ takes place for third time and in it’s second consecutive year at Hotel Es Vive, momentum is gaining pace with support, volunteers and donations for the event and it’s infamous auction are still coming in thick and fast.

Pure Madness!

Whilst behind the scenes he goes by the name of Carl Smyth, to the rest of us he’s better known as Chas Smash, kingpin of legendary ska band, Madness. Since the late 70’s and to the present day, and with international hits including ‘Our House’ and ‘Nightboat to Cairo’ and ‘It must be Love’, Madness remain a vital modern musical reference with international sell out tours packing venues as recently as 2007.

Therefore, it’s with great pleasure that the organisers of Ibiza’s annual charity event, The Butterfly Ball, to be held in Hotel Es Vive, Ibiza on 8th October , can confirm that the very same Chas Smash is set to perform an exclusive acoustic set at the event itself. A first not only for the Butterfly Ball, but for the island.

Fresh from a whirlwind of touring stadium venues including London’s 02 , and the summer festivals (BBK Bilbao, Sonar Barcelona), Chas is back once again on the island that, as of one year ago, he has called home. Luck shone down on us, with the confirmation of his solo performance at The Butterfly Ball.

APNEEF (Ibiza & Formentera Disabled Children Foundation)
The Butterfly Ball and it’s organisers Jill Canney and Elena Sanchez have chosen local children’s charity, APNEEF, as the cause for 2008. APNEEF is Ibiza & Formentera’s Association for Children with special needs.. Nearly 100 kids from babies to teenagers form the group, whose needs are an extreme variation of mental and physical disabilities. Our aim is to donate them a very healthy amount of euros. We hope we can count on your support.

We shall be holding a press call at Hotel Es Vive on Sat 4th October at 1pm at which Mr. Smash will be present, and when we will confirm the final details of the event. Representatives of APNEEF and a number of collaborators and sponsors will also be at the press call for The Butterfly Ball, organised by local PR & Events company; FIX Ibiza.

THE GRASSHOPPER’S FEAST
After the success of last year’s Thai Buffet Mr. Grasshopper aims to please the palette again at this year’s Ball with a Cava& Cocktail to wash down a sumptuous sushi selection prepared by our Japanese chef. After that, its time for a multiple choice Thai menu from Es Vive’s in-house chefs before sweets and desserts.

A selection of locally and organically produced wines and a hefty quantity of Hierbas ibicencas, provided by Ibicenc vineyard Can Rich should help wash down the feast.

THE AUCTION
As the final countdown begins, the auction catalogue is bursting with goodies already. Donations from household names from the worlds of art, sport, cinema, fashion and music have flooded in .all of them being primed to go under our auctioneer’s hammer this coming Wednesday 8th October. In fact, support has been so great that, due to the sheer quantity of contributions, this year guests will find a few other ways to take home a special something, with raffles, pinatas and random giveaways throughout the evening.

Whilst we are holding back the full catalogue til the day of the event itself, we can confirm that contributors of the items up for grabs include international models Kate Moss and Martina Klein, sports heroes Zidane, Ronaldo and Stephen Gerrard , musicians, artists and producers like Lil Louie Vega, , Dizzee Rascal, Maxi Jazz, artists Luis Gaspar, Marcos Torres, Jesu de Miguel, Sergio Ferrero, Rachel Brown (Hello UK Young Photographer 2007)

Bespoke jewellery from Cyd, botox and hypnotherapy sessions, weekends at Atzaro, VIP holidays to London and Ibiza, light shows from Aladdin and game consoles from X-box, concert tickets and tattoos, drinks, dinners and shopping vouchers, smellies and sillies; it really is a something for everyone choice at this year’s fundraiser, ‘The Butterfly Ball’.

THE BUTTERFLY BEAT
Whilst we plan to gather in the exterior of Hotel es Vive for drinks, dinner and auction, as the clock strikes 12, or thereabouts; it will be time to make our way inside to the Smirnoff Experience bar in the hotel for a wiggle to the butterfly-ball-beats of Jo Mills, Colin Peters, Ben deMiedo, Javi Box, B’fly & Toga, Polly Fey, Ian C and more lovely surprises on the point of confirmation.

3rd Butterfly Ball

August 17th, 2008

The 3rd Butterfly bll will take place at Es Vive again this year on Weds 3rd October. This year they’ll be supporting the localcal childrens charity APNEEF.

With Ibiza Summer 2008 heading for its peak, its time once again to think Charity Fund Raising by way of the 3rd Annual Butterfly Ball.

This year, the organisers of the event (Jill Canney & Elena Sanchez) have, after careful consideration, chosen local Ibiza association for disabled children, APNEEF as the charity of choice, with all monies raised at The Butterfly Ball being donated to that particular worthy cause.

APNEEF attends nearly 100 local children with severe physical and mental disabilities and is in dire need of proper funding and support. So, lets help them, folks.

This year’s Ball will once again take place in Hotel Es Vive and donations are already coming in for auction by various well known personalities from the worlds of music, theatre, art and sport.
Whilst details on the event are currently being finalized, so far, so good – The Butterfly Ball is shaping up nicely and tickets will soon be on sale. The night will follow pretty much the same formula as last year with a few extras- champagne reception, dinner, auction, live acts, a bit of charidee karaoke, DJs and a bit of an all round knees up, and all for a great island cause (these kids really do need help)
