23rd July 2016
The 2016 Monaco Red Cross Gala, one of the most exclusive social and charity events in Monte Carlo, will be held on July 23, 2016 in the Salle des Etoiles at the Sporting Monte-Carlo. During the illustrious event, American songstress Lana Del Rey will take center-stage, performing an exclusive concert for guests during the fabulous evening.
The Monaco Red Cross Gala has been held every year since the founding of the Monaco Red Cross in 1948 by Prince Louis II of Monaco. Serving as the perfect outlet for the Monaco Red Cross to express its gratitude towards its generous donors and pay tribute to the work it has been able to carry out with their donations both locally and internationally, the prestigious event is highly-attended by International High-Society members and members of the Monaco Royal Family.
The enchanting gala begins with traditional tombola - a raffle which includes many high-end prizes, followed by a delectable menu of summer flavours. Following the sumptuous meal, patrons will regale in the sweet sounds of Lana Del Rey, who is no stranger to Monaco, having performed in the principality several times, including when she was invited to perform an intimate concert at the Opéra Garnier following the release of her first album. She joins the ranks of legends like Joséphine Baker, Ella Fitzgerald, Stevie Wonder, Sting, and more. After the memorable concert, traditional fireworks will light up the sky, marking the close of the fantastic evening.
All proceeds of the Monaco Red Cross Gala benefit the Monaco Red Cross. The ball is a long-standing affair that remains close to the hearts of many philanthropists.
