The first event to promote the activities of the Princess Charlene Foundation has been held on Australian soil. The dinner at the Park Hyatt Sydney on September 19 was attended by 120 guests who had the privilege of enjoying a menu jointly produced by the Chef of the Hotel Hermitage, Benoit Witz, and the Chef of the Park Hyatt Sydney, Etienne Karner.

The funds raised during the dinner will be used by the Royal Life Saving Society Australia, with which the Princesse Charlene Foundation is collaborating to develop drowning education and awareness programmes.

The Ambassador of Monaco, HE Mrs. Catherine Fautrier, pointed out that the number of deaths by drowning across the world remains incredibly high.

Last year, Australia reported 291 deaths from drowning and 685 people were hospitalised following an accident. Children are still the hardest hit, making up 45 percent of victims in 2016.

Justin Scarr, CEO Royal Life Saving Australia, stressed the importance of working together with the Princess’s Foundation to put an end to these tragedies.
