What should I know

ETC2017 (1)It’s always good to know what to expect before an event, especially for the ladies, right? So here’s a few good-to-know tips:

Dress-code

It says black tie… do you have to wear a tux and a black long gown? NO…NO…NO…. we want you to be stylish but also comfortable.
Ladies: You don’t have to wear just black. We encourage colors and be as fabulous as you want to be. You can wear a fabulous cocktail dress or maybe Indonesian style outfit like kebaya or batik. And yes, heels are great since you will be seated for dinner.

Gentlemen: If you own a tux, by any means, be 007 for the night and impress your date or the ladies 🙂 but you are welcome to wear suits in any color, sports jacket, long sleeves Batik is also encouraged. Be as creative as you want. We love to see bold styles there.

It’s a fundraising so we will have a few raffles and auction items. The Philadelphia Phillies is generous enough to give us a few items, there will be also a few handmade jewelry by an Indonesian artist, and our featured realist artist’s painting Dian Paramita will be showcasing a few pieces of her collection and will be donating a portion of the sale to Modero.

CYNTHIA DEWI OKA

The program will be segmented into cultural, dinner and fusion segments. We are excited to showcase our youth, teen and ladies troupes during the cultural segment and featuring Cynthia Dewi Oka an Indonesian Poet.  Our fusion segment will be more of a concert. This is a rare treat and collaboration, so wait and see.

How to get there

The best way to get around center city Philadelphia is probably by using public transportation (Septa/Uber/Lyft) so that you don’t have worry about parking. Below are some info for you whether you decide to drive, uber-ing or take the Septa adventure!
