Unforgettable 70th birthday gala for Monegasque Red Cross

By Staff Writer - July 18, 2018

Under the presidency of Prince Albert II, the 70th Gala of the Monegasque Red Cross will take place on Friday, July 27, in the prestigious setting of the Salle des Etoiles at the Sporting Monte-Carlo.

For the organisation founded in 1948 by Prince Louis II, this anniversary evening marks seventy years of help for the most vulnerable people, both within the Principality and elsewhere. The evening is a tribute to those who support the Monegasque Red Cross with donations.

Supported and guided by the deep convictions of HSH Prince Albert II, its President, the Monegasque Red Cross has continued to expand its help to alleviate the suffering caused by human tragedies that assail men, women and children around the world. In Monaco, 50 employees and over 600 volunteer members give their time to fulfil the Association’s missions both nationally and internationally in response to disasters.

In 2017, more than 74,000 people worldwide benefited directly from the activities of the Monegasque Red Cross, a figure that is twice the population of Monaco.

The 70th Gala of the Monegasque Red Cross promises to be unforgettable thanks to the presence of key artists, invited by the SBM.

This year the Monegasque Red Cross is particularly honoured to host Seal, the British legend of soul who became known in 1991 with the single ‘Crazy’. The same year, his first album SEAL, was greeted enthusiastically by critics. The evening is presented by Adriana Karembeu and Michel Cymes, accompanied by Maïtena Biraben.
