Ladies Vintage Car Rally revving up

Ladies Vintage Car Rally revving up

The third edition of the Ladies’ Rally Vintage Car Charity Event takes place Sept 18.
The third edition of the Ladies’ Rally Vintage Car Charity Event takes place Sept 18.

The third annual Ladies Vintage Car Rally is almost here again with the same purpose as the very successful previous events, to raise funds for Child Care Monaco’s girls’ school in India. This year’s Rally on September 18 takes on a new dimension with Place du Casino of Monte-Carlo especially privatised for the event.

Organiser Martine Ackerman reminds participants that, unlike many motoring events in Monaco, this is not a race. “Come enjoy, or even drive the beautiful vintage cars thanks to the great help and support of Fabrice Leroy from Rent a Classic Car and the other sponsors such as Café de Paris, Restaurant CastelRoc, Organic Spa & Hair, Champagne Taittinger and many more,” Martine says.

The theme for 2016 is “Belle en perles – Coco Chanel style,” which needs no translation. The day starts at 8:15 am in front of the Casino, with departure at 9 am, and ends at Palace du Palais at 7 pm, with a cocktail and awards giving at Le Castelroc restaurant. Martine emphasises the need for everyone participating to contact childcare@monaco.mc
before September 1, and in her usual friendly manner adds: “If you have any questions, needs or requests, we are here to help you!”

In 2012, Martine set up the association Child CARE Monaco with the objective to offer education to underprivileged children all over the world. After several visits to India, they established the Sneh Girls School, which welcomes 90 girls every day on borrowed premises. But the facility has quickly proved too small as it also accommodates girls from villages nearby so the following year, Child CARE Monaco build a school with a dispensary, two additional classrooms and a playground.

If you can’t make the Ladies Vintage Car Rally, you can help by sending a donation 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.
