For the second year in a row, YOU can join an exclusive hybrid experience, gather your friends at home or in the venue of your choice and get connected with hundreds of others people accross the world.

Together, we break the mould of the traditional charity gala and come together from wherever we are, to support children impacted by COVID-19.

Because education should never be unattainable!

1.Choose your experience

Whether you are by yourself or have tens of people for company, you won't have to miss out on this one-of-a-kind event. If you are not in Ho Chi Minh City, or even Vietnam, and would like to host a party to join on the day, please contact us anyway because we may be able to support.

2. Receive your at-home package

If opting for the "Ball at home" experience, you can choose from a cocktail-only option or a full package with food prepared by one of the most renowned chefs in Saigon, and a special cocktail developed by a professional bartender who is an alumnus of saigonchildren.

3. Connect via a live stream

No matter the size of your company, you can be part of a much grander event through a live stream to connect all parties of Saigon Christmas Ball around the world. Join live auction, entertainment, raffles, and toast with your friends near and far.
