The charity Opera Ball opened the Slovak ball season on January 13, in the historical building of the Slovak National Theatre.

For nine years, its primary mission has been helping disabled children, the TASR newswire wrote. 300 pairs of guests were in attendance and supported the charity character of the event that aims to create better conditions for children with disabilities and provide them with quality education.

“Each year is unique for us,” Pavol Lančariš, CEO of Orange Slovakia and the representative for the Opera Ball host, told TASR. “The support and presence of our precious guests shows us every year how deeply people care for this charity event. This year was even more extraordinary as the Opera Ball was held under the auspices of Slovak President Andrej Kiska, which is an enormous honour for us.”

Guests of the ball included dozens of well-known celebrities of science, economics, politics, education, sport and culture.

The balls season lasts until Ash Wednesday, which falls on February 14 this year. Afterwards, the period of Lent will end all official meetings and posh events as believers must fast before Easter.
