Black and White ball organized by ICDDR,B (International Care for Diarrhea, Bangladesh) is a fund raising ball for the global health research, international training, and free life-saving care for diarrheal patients in Dhaka. Over 450 elegant guests, gowned and tuxed in Black and White spilled out into the gardens between the pools on the cool evening for drinks and canapes with their friends before a 5 course dinner and a professional Trilogy fashion show. Door prizes from British Airways, Guide Tours, Gulf Technologies, Indian Airlines, Sage Travels, Tarafder Co. and Travel Channel rewarded lucky ticket holders. Enthusiastic bidding in the silent auction of art, silver jewelry, Qatar, Thai and Guide or Contic adventure trips continued until midnight. A live auction of many international destination flights (contributed by Gulf Air, Singpore Airlines, Emirates, Air India & GMG) and a Heritage Private Dinner for 8 raised the ICDDR,B Hospital Endowment Funds to a new record. Dancing to the oldies played by Parthibo band lasted until 2 am in the lovely Radisson Ballroom, decorated by Tootlie Rahman
