THE PEAK kicks off inaugural Diplomatic Gala Ball at Shangri-la Hotel Singapore with the Dean of the Diplomatic & Consular Corps of Singapore

Singapore, 18 January 2018 – THE PEAK, Singapore’s leading luxury lifestyle magazine, which has a history of 34 years since its establishment in 1984, celebrated an evening of cross cultural sharing with the attendance of over 80 ambassadors, high commissioners, senior consular personnel and their partners dressed in their national costumes and key corporate business leaders, at the Shangri-la Hotel, Singapore, tonight.


This event was led and graced by His Excellency Zenon Kosiniak-Kamysz, Ambassador of the Republic of Poland of Singapore and Dean of the Diplomatic and Consular Corps Singapore. He said: “The tradition of setting up the balls at the beginning of the new year is well known, not only in Europe but also in other parts of the world. I am very happy that we can bring this idea to Singapore and to have a splendid opportunity to get together and further strengthen the ties between the diplomatic community and our Singaporean friends.”


Highlight of the event was a Polonaise ceremonial dance that engaged some of the 220 attendees of the night within the ballroom. The ball raised more than $28,000 for MILK (Mainly I Love Kids) Fund.
