Badan Warisan Malaysia is currently organizing a fundraising event — KUL Ball.
So, this post I am going to help promoting this meaningful event!
What’s KUL Ball?
KUL Ball is a fundraising programme,
 organized by BWM to urge deeper understanding of heritage spaces in youth with digital platform.
This isn’t the first time BWM held a ball like this.
They have held once to save Majestic Hotel which was threatened with demolition in 1983.
Thus, Majestic Hotel was chosen to be the place to have KUL Ball 2014;
with the theme of “something old something new”,
targeted to create RM10 million Cultural Heritage Grants Programme.

Details:
Date             : 20 June 2014, Friday
Time            : 7:00pm
Venue          : Majestic Hotel, Kuala Lumpur
Admission    :  Minimum donation of RM300 per invitation

Warisan Lab
Other than that, Badan Warisan Malaysia is also having another event on 14 & 15 June 2014; Warisan Lab.
What  happens when old school meets new school?
You get Star Wars Wayang Kulit!
There are few things more interesting or quirky. 
Warisan Lab presents the artists behind the project who will share their exciting experience.
Audiences who join the Warisan Lab can get up close to other fascinating projects;
such as the  experimental puppeteer theatre performance,
Main Wayang: Hikayat Sang Kancil and a 3D digital capture of the boatmakers of Terengganu.

As part of education and awareness programme,
BWM also hosted few activities which include:-
