The Burma Ball was held at New York's legendary Friar's Club on September 19, 2011. The loosely titled "Ball" (really a cocktail party) was held to benefit Burmese refugee boys living at the New Blood Migrant School in Mae Sot, Thailand, on Burma’s border. The proceeds from the event were to help build a boy's dormitory at the school, the girl's dormitory already being in process.

The event was co-hosted by best selling author Naomi Wolf, Academy Award nominated filmmaker Morgan Spurlock, and acclaimed actor and activist Esai Morales.
