Committee Spotlight: Gala Committee
The Gala Committee has their gala festivity coming up next week!! Let's see what these fancy looking people have to say! Answers were given by Peter van der Burgt, the Board Responsible of the committee.
You can still buy tickets until Sunday the 10th of March by following this link to the event page.
What is the name of your committee and give a short description.
We are the Gala Committee and we organize the majestic Gala and all the fun pre-Gala events!
You’ve been organizing galas with other organizations, who have these associations been in the past?
These associations have indeed differed. We started out with organizing it with Sirius, but a couple years ago we switched to Atlantis and Astatine. This year we're organising it only with one other association: Astatine.
The committee consists of a board responsible and two other members from each of the two association, resulting in 6 committee members total.
The theme this year is Drive-In-Dancing, how did you come up with this theme?
After a lot of brainstorming and getting rid of other good, but not THE best ideas.
If you were to organize a gala with unlimited funds, what would make it so special?
Obviously a fabulous location, and transport with limousines and wonderful decoration.
On the other hand, if you’d have no funds at all, what would you do?
Organise the Schrala!!!
Gala gadgets are a thing apparently, what exactly are those and will your committee have one as well?
They are a creative outburst for the wearer, as you can use it to be linked to another person, or a committee.
Of course we will have a gadget with the committee! It'll be a small pair of roller skates as a nod to the theme.
Do you have a nice anecdote or fact about the committee?
We're awesome and fabulously dressed?!
