A fight for women’s hearts: 250 people turn out for the FLMM’s Soirée du Cœur

The Femmes Leaders Mondiales Monaco association has hosted its seventh annual Soirée du Cœur, an evening championing the powers of community, philanthropy and science in changing the fates of women around the world who are affected by cardiovascular illnesses and disease. 

Did you know that one in two women alive today will, at some point, suffer from or even die as a result of cardiovascular disease?  

Heart disease in women, though clearly common around the world, is often overlooked, with other health problems such as cancer receiving considerably more media attention.  

The Femmes Leaders Mondiales Monaco (FLMM) association is hoping to change that – at least on a local scale.  

Under the High Patronage of Prince Albert II of Monaco and the Honorary Presidency of Princess Stéphanie of Monaco, the association recently held its seventh annual Soirée du Cœur event at the Yacht Club de Monaco. 

The evening attracted some 250 guests, each dressed in vibrant shades of red, including a number of high-profile individuals from Monaco’s political sphere, the Cardiothoracic Centre of Monaco and Centre Hospitalier Princesse Grace (CHPG). 

The overarching goal of the yearly event is to improve awareness of the prevalence of heart disease in women with the message: Protect your heart, Consult your cardiologist. 

The evening featured a healthy gourmet meal, a fashion show by GIU Monte-Carlo and an auction of works of art from creatives linked to the FLMM and its noble cause. 

All proceeds of the event were donated directly to the CHPG and the Cardiothoracic Centre of Monaco to support their respective studies and support initiatives for women affected by heart disease and illness. 

It was also announced that a date has already been set for next year’s Soirée du Cœur gathering: 3rd April 2025.
