For the third time tomorrow, the Rallye du Coeur will use dream cars on the streets of the Principality to finance a good cause.
If cars are your guilty pleasure, tomorrow morning you can enjoy them without feeling guilty. Several dream cars will be exhibited on the Place du Casino… and it will be strongly recommended to do more than just look at them.
For 50 or 70 euros (depending on whether you are a passenger or a driver), these little treasures will be yours to drive. Simply by placing yourself at the wheel of the Jaguar Type E Cabriolet, the Mercedes 190 SL from Princess Grace or the Austin-Healey 3000 from Simon Templar (‘Le Saint’), you will not only have a great time but you will bring comfort to families of children with mental disabilities and autism.
Break for families
The Rallye du Coeur is a fundraiser for Monaco Disease Power. This association, which is celebrating its tenth anniversary this year, gives affected families a little break, in its ventilated centers or at the House of Amelie in the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence: “Accompanying those with mental disabilities can weigh heavy on families. So we help them by offering them a stay in a place dedicated to their needs, in terms of architecture and atmosphere. So, they can have a real relaxing family holiday, while staying together. And it is also an opportunity to interact with people who are experiencing the same challenges,” explains Muriel Natali-Laure, president of the association.
Available on demand, the facility has been so successful that a second house and a pavilion of activities will soon be created. For Fabrice Le Roy, head of Rent A Car Classic, the company which is supplying the vehicles, this event is essential.
“My team looks forward to the event. Our business is working well; it’s a way of giving back and putting oneself at the service of those who really need it.” Having great time while helping others is an opportunity that should not be missed.
