Right in the height of summer and hosted by HRH Prince Albert of Monaco, the annual Monte Carlo Red Cross Gala Ball is now in its 65th year and represents one of the highlights of the principality’s social calendar.
Held at the prestigious Sporting d’Eté Club in the Salle des Etoiles, the fund-raiser event attracts a glittering guest list of 850 of the world’s international elite and celebrities as well as donors keen to contribute to the Red Cross charity. Entertainment is provided throughout the evening, with last year’s acts including The Scorpions and Boy George. The Gala was founded in 1948 by Prince Rainer III who endeavoured to raise awareness of the charity’s good work around the world with an exclusive event that raises impressive sums of money each year.
