Mission Enfance has reported a fantastic success for its Vintage Hermès and Rare Wines charity auction held on July 21.

Organised by Artcurial and Luc Pettavino, with the support of Julius Baer private bank, the event raised a total of €426,900 to help the charity support children in some of the most deprived parts of the world.

Celebrating its 25th anniversary, Mission Enfance has already helped more than 700,000 children, especially concentrating on providing youngsters with schooling that would otherwise not be available. Unlike many other children’s charities, Mission Enfance is a Monaco-based association that administers its own projects. Ninety-nine percent of money raised is used directly in the field, with only one percent going to fund-raising and administration.
