Berkeley Institute To Host Green & Gold Ball

May 11, 2015

The Berkeley Institute Student Council is inviting the public to attend the second annual Alumni Green and Gold Ball, an event to be held in the Harbourview Ballroom at the Fairmont Hamilton Princess on May 16, with cocktails to be served from 7.00pm to 8.00pm, and the banquet to get underway at 8.00pm.

Berkeley Student Council President Chinyere Nwasike said, “On May 16, the Berkeley Student Council will be hosting our second annual Green and Gold Alumni Ball at the Harbourview Ballroom at Hamilton Princess.

“The ball is a student run event and it was an idea that came about from our two student council members from last year: our president Lady Carmela Robinson, and our treasurer Ryan Perinchief. They came out with this idea to really connect the alumni.

“So that’s what this alumni ball was for and that’s why we have decided to keep the tradition going and make it an annual event.”

Berkeley Student Council President Chinyere Nwasike & Student Council Historian Sage Jackson:

Student Council Historian Sage Jackson said, “Last year it was a success for our first one. And we decided, since we wanted 200 people, we decided that let’s go for 300 people. We thought it was very good, so we decided to do another one.”

Ms. Nwasike added, “All of our funds are going towards our Student Council Scholarship. We have this scholarship every year and this year we wanted to provide five $2,000 scholarship.”

Tickets cost $100 each and can be purchased now at the Berkeley Institute or online at, with all proceeds to aid the Student Council Scholarship Fund.
