Monte-Carlo Television Festival partners with Make-A-Wish for Night of 100 Stars

Ahead the red carpet in June, Monte-Carlo Television Festival has announced that the event will be co-hosting the Night of 100 Stars gala in partnership with Make-A-Wish International, the charity association dedicated to putting smiles on the faces of critically ill children around the world. 

Around a hundred VIP guests, celebrities and notable Monaco residents will be gathering at the Monte-Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort for the Night of 100 Stars charity event on 16th June, and the gala evening looks set to be one of the big philanthropic occasions of the summer.  

Maxime Dereymez, the winner of Dancing with the Stars France, and former model Victoria Silvstedt will be co-emceeing the event, which will feature a special performance by The Voice France alumni Nade.  

“This event is more than just a glamourous night,” says Silvstedt. “It is an opportunity to make a real difference in the lives of children around the world.”   

Founded in 1980, Make-A-Wish has spent the last four decades giving critically or terminally ill children the chance to live out their dreams for a day, whether that is going on a rollercoaster, being a police officer or meeting their hero.  

The wishes of more than 585,000 children worldwide have been granted by Make-A-Wish and its affiliates, which operate a network of branches in 40 countries across six continents.  

“As our festival celebrates the talent of international television production, we also shine a light on the positive impact our industry can have on the lives of others,” says Laurent Puons, CEO of the Monte-Carlo Television Festival. “With this event, we are delighted to support Make-A-Wish International and to help grant wishes to children around the world who are living with critical illnesses.”
