In a regal affair resonating with opulence and altruism, the Club Vivanova Luxury Lifestyle Charity Gala Dinner marked its ninth splendid edition, graced by the esteemed presence of HSH Princess Stephanie on a memorable Saturday, November 18th.
Transforming extravagance into benevolence, Bradley Mitton and the esteemed partners of Club Vivanova orchestrated an evening of magnificence at the Salle d’Or Ballroom within the Fairmont Monte Carlo Hotel. The charitable spirits soared high, amassing a commendable sum of 57,100 euros destined for the Monegasque Ecoute Cancer Réconfort association and the noble cause of Borneo Wildlife Preservation, propelled by an animated and fruitful auction. The highlight of the charity auction was an incredible painting featuring Princess Grace and Prince Rainier, which captivated attendees.
Special presentations from esteemed figures like Pierre Louis Renou, Managing Director of Fairmont Monte Carlo, Christian Moore, partnership advisor to the Borneo Wildlife Preservation, and Valerie Barilaro, President of Ecoute Cancer Réconfort added to the spirit of giving.
This charitable endeavor has consistently raised over €300,000 across the preceding eight editions, fostering a dynamic networking platform while providing invaluable support to those in need. Partnered with the Gala was the InternationalUniversity of Monaco and various other organizations, including HelloMonaco who both participated in the Gala evening as well as acting as its Media partner. The gala exemplified a harmonious blend of luxury, generosity, and unwavering support for meaningful causes.
The event, a resounding success with tickets completely sold out, witnessed the convergence of familiar faces from the Principality, congregating to relish a meticulously curated five-course gourmet feast complemented by a selection of exquisite international wines. Subsequently, the indulgence continued with Premier Cru champagne and generous pours of Mezcal Xamán, fostering an atmosphere of conviviality and generosity.
Adding a dash of elegance to the gala, Pauline Ducruet mesmerized attendees with an enchanting Alter couture fashion show, while the captivating melodies of the all-female London musical ensemble, High on Heels, reverberated gracefully throughout the soirée. The charismatic UK-based musical ensemble enchanted guests with three captivating sets, culminating in a vibrant after-party filled with lively dancing.
“Life’s greatest accomplishments emerge through acts of giving, and our annual gala stands as a testament to celebrating life’s finest offerings while extending the opportunity for patrons to contribute to transformative local charities,” articulated Club Vivanova founder, Mitton. “In these challenging times globally, uniting for a collective positive impact resonates as truly remarkable.”
