The entertainment became evermore traditional as two groups of children from Gercey’s dancing school performed a beautiful traditional kandyan style dance and a song by Sunil Shantha “HANDAPANE”. To follow live music was provided by Action Band as their excellent combination of rock and roll, jazz, soul and non stop Baila kept the guests on their toes until the early hours of the morning.

Traditional Sri-Lankan buffet was served by Golden Platter’s to the delight of the crowd. A raffle was drawn. With joy and warmth in ones heart knowing that the funds raised from the event was going towards a worthy cause. All in all the smiling faces that left the GAA Sports Club in the early hour of the morning showed how much of a success Childlanka Spring Golden Ball 2010 was.
