The Rose Ball
March 24, 2018 @ 8:30 pm - 10:00 pm
The Rose Ball will be held this year on Saturday 24 March traditionally at the Sporting Monte-Carlo – Salle des Etoiles.
This is one of the major charity events in Monaco. Created in 1954, it benefits the Princess Grace Foundation. For 2018, Karl Lagerfeld was again invited to design the Ball, his fifth time to accept the honour. Each year, H.R.H. Princess of Hanover selects a new theme. This year the theme was named “Manhattan” and everything from invitations to table decorations will be done in this style.
There are always ravishing bouquets of thousands of roses decorating the Salle des Etoiles in the Sporting d’Eté complex. Top-name performers delight the audience, who grace the event with their finest attire. This prestigious fund-raising event is open to the public.
A social gathering
Currently presided by H.S.H. the Sovereign Prince Albert II and H.R.H. Princess Caroline of Hanover, the Rose Ball is a symbol of glamour that maintains the fascinating Monte-Carlo legend that it has helped create.
A Ball between tradition and modernity
In March 2013, the year of the 150th anniversary celebration of the Monte-Carlo SBM Group, the event was renamed Rose Ball on The Rock for the occasion. Thanks to Karl Lagerfeld‘s artistic talent, the Salle des Etoiles was transformed into a “Belle et Pop” ballroom.
A fundraiser for the Princesse Grace Foundation
The Ball isn’t just a simple social event or another pretext to have a party. It is first and foremost an internationally recognised charity event with all proceeds and other exceptional prizes (sculptures, paintings etc.) going to the Princess Grace Foundation since 1964. This foundation’s vocation is to help people and children in need by developing humanitarian and philanthropic projects.
