Presided over by Prince Albert, the second Monte-Carlo Gala for the Global Ocean will take place on Wednesday, September 26, on the opening day of the Monaco Yacht Show.

This important event will take place in the presence of international artists and philanthropists committed to the protection of the Ocean, which is today seriously threatened by human activity.

The Monte-Carlo Gala aims to meet the challenge of a sustainable Ocean, for the next generation and for our Planet’s future.

This event is organised by the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation and Milutin Gatsby, Global Fundraising Chairman, with the support of the Monaco Yacht Show, the Oceanographic Institute, the Yacht Club of Monaco, the Société des Bains de Mer and Monaco Private Label, in order to support the Foundation’s marine conservation initiatives.

On the programme of this prestigious evening on the Terraces of the Opera of Monaco: red carpet, cocktail reception, dinner prepared by a Michelin-star Chef and performances by international artists.

An exceptional auction will punctuate the Monte-Carlo Gala, filled with once-in-a-lifetime experiences, collectibles and memorabilia, and a selection of fine art from some of the world’s most important artists. Proceeds from the auction will support the Foundation’s initiatives dedicated to the Ocean: the development of marine protected areas, the protection of threatened marine species, the mitigation of the impact of climate change and acidification on the Ocean, the promotion of innovation and the fight against plastic pollution.

The first Monte-Carlo Gala took place in September 2017, with the support of Leonardo DiCaprio, Goldie Hawn, Andy Garcia, Adrien Brody, Eva Longoria, Madonna, Joe Pesci, Martin Scorsese, Tobey Maguire, Enric Sala, Terry Tamminen, Nelly Furtado, Robin Thicke, Lior Suchard and Olga Kurlyenko.
