Tickets are now available for the rooftop charity dinner that is being organised this month at the Fairmont Hotel in aid of Borneo Wildlife Preservation and the endangered Bornean elephant.
The Bornean elephant, a subspecies of the Asian elephant, is a rare animal, indeed. The smallest of their species and genetically different, these majestic creatures have longer tails, larger ears and straighter tusks than others of their kind.
They are also on a rapid road to extinction, due to pressures put on their environment, primarily due to human expansion. There are estimated to be fewer than 1,200 Bornean elephants in existence, and the forests which they once thrived in are being chewed away to make way for palm oil farms and housing for people. This loss of habitat is threatening an already endangered animal population.
On 18th June, the Horizon Top Deck of the Fairmont Monte-Carlo Hotel will be the setting for the Enchanted Midsummer Forest Party, giving people a chance to help these imperilled animals.
Guest of honour Christian Moore, founder of Global Environment Media, will speak about the challenges, sustainability, and plight of the Bornean elephants and ways that people can help restore their population whilst also helping the people of Borneo and their local economy.
The evening begins at 7:30pm with a champagne aperitif, followed by the presentation by Mr Moore. Then guests will enjoy a three-course gourmet meal, a fashion show put on by timelessly elegant clothing makers Lakemakeld, and music performed by a live DJ on-site.
A tombola with incredible prizes will be held after dinner and will offer up such unique items as a Columbian handmade woven palm Meraki Heritage handbag, a piece by artist Gabriella Vogogna utilizing the footprint of a rescued Bornean Pygmy elephant, Naji, a limited-edition, unisex, handmade belt with a buckle plated in 18kt white gold made by Martina Wagner, a complimentary posture analysis and two body alignments by Azur Chiropractic in Beausoleil, a welcome gift of fragrances by Liu Jo collection, dinner for two at Avenue31, a feature and marketing campaign in Relentless Magazine, a cellar tour and light lunch at Mastro Janni Relais in Montalcino, Italy, a sustainable luxury beach coverup by Victoria Silvstedt Wild Life collection, and Marli Dresses and a premium case of international wines from Brad’s Wine Subscription donated by Elizabeth Platt.
