What’s On | November, 2016 | Dubai, UAE|

There’s never a dull moment in Dubai. One of the best things about living in our fair Emirate is that throughout the year, on any given day, there is always something new or exciting to see and do. Whether it is the official opening of yet another world’s largest for Dubai, an annual festival, a street parade or a market fair there is bound to be something that tickles your fancy.

Here are just some of the things happening in and around Dubai this month… (more…)

The IGNITE Pink is Punk campaign is back, bigger than ever, better than ever and ready to raise funds and awareness for breast cancer. Al Jalila Foundation is the charity beneficiary for the event where 100 % of the proceeds will support breast cancer research and treatment in UAE.

Compete as an individual or as part of a team of two (men, women, mixed). Supporters may also register and pay the fees (same price/same extras/non-competing) in support. Don’t forget we also have a best dressed!
