The GCO Youth organized the “YOUTH MASQUERADE BALL 2012” on Thursday 10th May 2012 in the church hall of Sts. Peter and Paul, Ruwi and was open to all Christian Youth.

After the 8:15 pm mass and distribution of certificates, etc. for the catechism children, the event began with the introduction of the members of the GCO and the team involved in the organization of the event, followed by the upcoming events of the GCO for the year 2012.

Mr. Sebastiao Boney Vas, Sports coordinator of the GCO, led with an opening prayer invoking the blessings of our Heavenly Father and asking our blessed Mother to intercede for each of us, following which the dance floor was opened to the youth.  Our Dj’s for the night played tunes that the youth could not resist and continued to be on the dance floor from the beginning to the very end.  Moreover, our anchors Makhushla Santimano and Christopher Coloso did a wonderful job with their witty jokes and ensuring everyone was on the dance floor.

It was announced that there would be a prize for the best and most creative “MASK” which was bagged by Ms. Samantha D’souza and was awarded by Mr. Savio Martyres, General Secretary of the GCO.

During the whole program, a lot of spot prizes were given away and one of the most important highlights of the Youth Masquerade Ball was the crowning of the ‘Masquerade King and Queen’.

This time the team decided to do it a little differently. The king and queen were selected based on their popularity amongst friends and family on FACEBOOK. This way everyone got an equal opportunity to reach out to their friends and family and the decision would be unbiased. Those willing to participate had to send us their recent photograph. The photograph with the maximum number of LIKES was declared the winner.

Master Clef D‘souza and Ms. Kimberly Pearl Pereira were crowned Youth Masquerade King and Queen 2012 by Mr. Herman Estebeiro, Cultural Coordinator of the GCO.

The Youth Masquerade Ball 2012 was a resounding success leaving a smile on everyone’s face at the end of the night. We urge all the Youth to come to support, encourage and be a part of all upcoming events organized by the GCO with all their family members and friends.
