Each year, during the searing summer months, we wait with excitement for the announcement of Surge’s next Design, Dine, Make a Difference challenge. And true to form, Surge comes up with better, more unique ways of engaging the region’s A+D community towards a singular purpose – to provide sustainable and safe water, sanitation and hygiene solutions to the world.
The Surge journey starts with a design challenge, where designers battle it out in a thrilling race to create the best, most unique piece of lighting or furniture, and it culminates in a glamorous and giving awards night gala event.
This year too, starts with a challenge, but with a unique twist – it will be a team collaboration towards a creative, innovative solution.
On 9th December 2019, the Address Dubai Marina was abuzz with designers, manufacturers and the many friends, volunteers and well wishers of the organisation, Surge, who came together in their glittering best to celebrate Surge’s Design, Dine, Make a Difference Gala.
This year Acoulite decide to get involved as a headline sponsor. It was an absolute pleasure to be able to open the show with our LED Butterfly performance.
Surge provides sustainable safe water, sanitation, and hygiene solutions, in an effort to change the world one drop at a time. In a world in which 2,300 people die every day because of inadequate drinking water and sanitation, Surge takes a multi faceted approach to reach as many people as possible. Since 2008, the organisation has impacted 1 million people in 11 countries. 100 percent of public donations received fund safe water, sanitation and associated education projects.
