Ladies rally Gingham-style for Child CARE Monaco

Ladies rally Gingham-style for Child CARE Monaco

By Staff Writer - September 17, 2017

The 4th edition of the Ladies Vintage Charity Rally left in full “pumps and circumstance” from Casino Square Sunday morning. The annual women-only event, which has become a fall tradition, is organised by the Monaco-based Child CARE (Charity Association for the Right to Education) Monaco.

In addition to respecting this year’s Gingham theme (think Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz), every one of Sunday’s 50 participants had one thing in common: to support Martine Ackermann.

Five years ago, Martine created the not-for-profit with the objective to offer education to underprivileged children all over the world. The Car Rally raises funds for the association’s Sneh Girls School in Tresta Village in Rajasthan, India.

The day started with café crèmes at Café de Paris and a first stop at Confiserie Florian in Pont du Loup followed by an elegant picnic lunch at Gourdon. Afternoon tea was sipped at the Relais & Châteaux Mas de Pierre in St Paul de Vence and the day ended with an awards ceremony, in the presence of Prince Albert, at Castleroc near the palace.

The fabulous vehicles – Ferraris, Porches, Morgans, Citroën DC Cabriolet Chapron – are supplied by Fabrice Leroy, owner of Rent a Classic Car in Nice, southern Europe’s largest private collection of vintage cars.

Donations or sponsoring a child age 5 to 13 for €149 per year, which covers 1 school year, 2 meals per day, basic medical needs and the school uniform, can be made at
