Preciosa too was again integrally involved in the event. We produced and donated two Balls of Fire, covered with sparkling crystal in fiery shades of light siam, siam and orange, which complemented the impressive ballroom decorations. The larger of the two balls was hung directly above the entrance, where a giant flying dragon loomed just below the hall’s ceiling, unfurling its lashing breath of flames.
The smaller ball, about the size of a soccer ball, was used as a prop during the gala evening’s dance performance that featured many dancing stars, including Hanna Kartunnen, who wore a “dragon” costume lit up by our VIVA12.
The event was also attended by our friends Sergey and Melia Surkov, who after their successful performance (in costumes decorated with Preciosa stones, of course!) signed autographs for enthusiastic fans at the Preciosa booth.
Preciosa was quite prominent at this year’s Millennium. We are very proud, as this year corporate sponsors, to be able to help in fulfilling dancers’ dreams as well as to support and assist our authorized American distributors in making new contacts.
