On behalf of West Australian Ballet and the Black & White Ball committee I would like to thank Ultimo Catering & Events for your support and commitment which made Saturday evening so successful. We have received many wonderful comments from guests about the evening, including the fabulous food and attentive waiting staff. Please pass on my personal thanks to Jess for her attention to detail and focused manner throughout the evening. Everyone loved the venue, quite amazing that a tin shed can be transformed into something so beautiful. Thank you once again.
