Make your first Christmas party of the year a charitable one by helping Chances for Children continue their humanitarian efforts in Uganda.

The ‘Everything that sparkles’ party promises to be an evening of fun, dancing to great tunes played by DJ Grace Williams, and the chance to win some great raffle prizes while raising money for the Chances for Children Charity of Monaco.

It will take place on Thursday 28th November from 7pm at the Stelios Foundation Philanthropic room, 14 Quai Antoine 1er in Monaco.

The ticket price of 60€ per person includes the first two glasses of bubbly and an elegant finger food buffet.

There will be a raffle with some fabulous prizes including a 300€ bottle of Champagne donated by Eqiom Monaco, a dinner for two at Cantinetta Antinori, a makeup session worth 250€, a 150€ Bottero Ski voucherand much more. Each prize has a minimum value of 100€. You can choose to keep the prize or offer it to someone as a gift.

Attendees will also be able to bid on various lots such as a signed AS Monaco shirt, two tickets to the England-France game at the Rugby Six Nations tournament donated by the Rugby legend and Scottish national team captain Ryan Wilson, and a painting by Ken Holmes valued at 4,000€.

“We plan to have the children live from Uganda on a video link, dancing and telling us about the Chances for Children family,” revealed Gabrielle Crump, the charity’s president. “It will be a fantastic night and we welcome friends old and new, supporters and the childrens’ sponsors to come together for a great night of fun in aid of our dynamic and growing organization.”

Funds raised from the evening will be used for a variety of running costs including medical fees, vaccinations, education and much needed but often forgotten maintenance of the charity house and vehicles.

“These funds are so vital to the smooth running of our children’s home and in keeping them safe and well,” said Gabrielled.

Chances for Children is a home for 54 orphan children in Uganda, run by Russell and Gabrielle Crump. They have been rescued from slums, hospitals and churches and now live in a large family environment in Kampala, Uganda and attend private school.

Chances for Children is a Monaco and UK-registered charity. They are hoping to raise around 15,000€ from the event.

Tickets can be bought on the Chances for Children‘ s website  or alternatively go to the Facebook page ( and click on the link to purchase the ticket.
