The charity fundraiser organized by international exhibition company, dmg events Middle East & Asia took place in March of this year and has raised over USD 2.3 million for Friends of Cancer Patients (FOCP), a UAE-based non-profit organization during their eight year partnership. The Ball, a major social date on the Dubai calendar provides guests have the opportunity to bid for ‘one of a kind’ memorabilia during a glitzy evening, with the proceeds going to FOCP.

Winning the award is a huge honor, and is dedicated to all those in the region fighting their personal battle with cancer.  The Oil Barons Charity Ball has been associated with the FOCP since 2008 and has raised over USD 2.3 million to date for the philanthropic organization. The award is further motivation for the talented staff at dmg events to continue with their exceptional efforts in organizing highly successful and popular events that can contribute towards the development of the local community.”
