HELIPAD DINNER @ BURZ AL ARAB
A once-in-a-life time dinner limited to 12 guests will be held atop the world's fourth tallest luxury hotel here to raise money for a UN food programme. The Burj Al Arab hotel in Dubai will host the dinner at its famous helipad, 212 metres above the ground, at nearly USD 2,722 per person. With seating limited to 12 guests, the dinner atop the Burj Al Arab helipad on March 13, will give all the proceeds to the 'Eat and Feed' initiative. The high table dinner is designed to raise money for the United Nations World Food Programme to provide food to more than 120,000 children for a day. "In addition to raising funds in a unique way, the High Table dinner also raises awareness of the great work being undertaken by the United Nations World Food Programme," said Laila Mohammed Suhail, CEO at Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment. The dinner is scheduled to be the grand finale of the Dubai Food Festival. The dinner starts with a warm Arabian welcome and exclusive reception on the lower helipad deck. Atop the helipad, guests will be treated to 360 degree panoramic views of Downtown Dubai, Dubai Marina, Palm Jumeirah, and the World Islands and a gastronomic seven-course degustation menu created by Burj Al Arab's Executive Chef, MaximeLuvara. "We are thrilled to back the Dubai Food Festival with this unique dining experience and contribute to Dubai’s position as a hub for culinary expertise," said Heinrich Morio, General Manager at Burj Al Arab.
