Save the date. Get your tuxedos and evening gowns ready. It’s just over a month away. Surge For Water is once again bringing us its much awaited gala – Design, Dine & Make a Difference – on 06 December 2017. For those not familiar with this non-profit organisation, Surge for Water is an organization dedicated to helping communities in need access clean drinking water and sanitation services. With a strong presence in the UAE, Surge Middle East’s work includes various activities aimed at educating the public, and more importantly the school going generation of the UAE, on water conservation and related sustainable practices. The Design, Dine & Make a Difference gala is a unique event born of out of a synergy between the driven team at Surge and the A+D community’s commitment to sustainable design. Not just a gala to wine and dine, the event centers around a competitive element. Each year, selected design firms compete to design a unique, one of a kind product made completely from sustainable materials. Those present at the event are offered the opportunity to vote for their favorite product, with a winner being crowned at the end of the evening. The Surge Gala has been a recurring hit, enjoying increasing popularity, engagement and participation from the A+D community every year. Design themes have included seating, tables and storage.
