    UNICEF is preparing for the Snowflake Ball, a charity event organized to celebrate the cause, contribute, spread awareness and meet new people. 

    The Snowflake Ball will take place on March 15th at the Berryessa Community Center from 6:00 to 9:00 P.M.  Several schools like Leland, Evergreen, Piedmont Hills, Independence, and Milpitas will join American High School in hosting this event.  The impending ball is planned to last for approximately 3.5 hours.  Initially, the ball was expected to take place in January, hence the name “Snowflake Ball”, however it was later postponed to March.

    “It was postponed because we wanted ample time to fix logistics of the dinner,” UNICEF Treasurer Roger Lee (12) said.  “We also had a problem with the caterer so it was ultimately moved to the 15th.”

    UNICEF members will proceed to meet up soon to wrap things up and take care of last-minute details regarding the ball.

     The proceeds for UNICEF will be donated to promote aid for Typhoon Haiyan Relief.  UNICEF have purposed the entire event around raising awareness for this cause.  “The time that everyone spends at the ball will go to our cause of helping those who were affected by Typhoon Haiyan, and I’m grateful to be a part of such a cause,” Lee said.

    “The meeting is taking place in San Jose at the Martin Luther King Library,” UNICEF Vice President Arshdeep Dhanoa (12) said.  “It is generally meant for UNICEF officers, but we will all still be collaborating and meeting together to take care of these things.  It won’t just be our school, but all of the schools that are expected to arrive on the 15th will also be coming, since they are involved.”

    As of now, the members of American’s UNICEF club are encouraging all students to attend the ball, advertising and selling tickets.

    “I expect a fun night, I really hope a lot of people come,” Lee said.  “I don’t really want people to think this is a stiff, boring event.  It’s a celebratory ball, and we’re going to make it as fun and whimsical a night as we can.  It’s really the least we UNICEF people can do, in the light of such an inspiring cause.”

    As planned by the coordinators, the Snowflake Ball will have several performances throughout the night.  Ergo, video auditions will be accepted until the 28th of February, and all students are encouraged to exhibit any talents they may have.

    “Although the event is geared towards the students of the hosting schools, anyone is welcome really,” junior Navya Kaur said.
