Monaco resident Mika Häkkinen, the former Formula One World Champion, is to cycle 322 kilometres from Tuscany to Monaco to raise funds for Caudwell Children, the UK charity that provides practical and emotional support to disabled children and their families. Häkkinen, 48, nicknamed “The Flying Finn” for his speed around the track, has agreed to participate in the Tuscany to Monaco Cycle Challenge after meeting John Caudwell, the entrepreneur, philanthropist and Founder of Caudwell Children. “I’ve been privileged to meet and get to know John,” explained Häkkinen, “His vision and passion for the charity has truly inspired me, and I felt compelled to get involved.” When he learned that Modesta Vzesniauskaite, the former Lithuanian Olympic cyclist, had organised the three-day Cycle Challenge, which starts September 22, to raise funds for the charity he jumped at the chance of registering for the event. “I’ve been cycling since I was a young boy,” said Häkkinen, the 1998 and 1999 World Champion. “If I remember correctly my first bike was a Tunturi bike, a Finnish brand. It had no shifts and only had pedal breaks. I was so proud.” Häkkinen has a number of bikes to choose from but he’s hoping his Giant will get him over the line in Monaco, despite his longest ride to date being an 140 km cycle from St Tropez to the Principality. As he explained: “I’ve done this ride a few times now for Her Highness Princess Charlene, and it’s a beautiful ride, as I’m sure the Tuscany to Monaco ride will be. Häkkinen, says that cycling is not only a great outdoor exercise but is also a great way to socialise. “I like to ride with friends and it gives me a great chance to chat and catch up. “It’s only since I finished my career that I’ve really started to appreciate the social aspect of it.” Money raised by Häkkinen, and a team of fellow cyclist, will allow Caudwell Children to continue providing hospital and in-home family support, mobility and sensory equipment, and access to specialist sports equipment. Funds will also assist fully supported family holidays for children with life-threatening conditions and activity days and life-changing therapies and treatments. Although he’s not cycling as much as he would like, Häkkinen says the challenge will be part of his fitness regime. “The Tuscany to Monaco ride will push me to get on my bike and practice a bit more. But for me it goes way beyond fitness, it includes other things like sleep and nutrition as well.” Day one of the event, on Friday, September 22, will see cyclists riding over 117 km through the beautiful rolling Tuscan countryside from San Gimignano to Forte dei Marmi. On the second day, participants will be in the saddle for 137 km miles as they are pushed to their limits on the undulating roads to the lovely town of Rapallo. On their final day of their challenge, on Sunday, September 24, the cyclists will encounter some strong coastal winds as they head towards the finish line in Monaco. “I’m very proud to support Caudwell Children, it’s a great charity, and I can’t wait to get started on this extremely worthwhile challenge.” Donations can be made through Mika Häkkinen's Just Giving Page or join Mika Häkkinen, fellow riders and guests at their celebration Ocean Gala Dinner (tickets from €500) on September 24 at the Monte-Carlo Bay Hotel.

On Wednesday, Charlotte Casiraghi made her usual appearance front row at the Gucci Spring/Summer 2018 show in Milan. A former model in four separate campaigns for their Forever Now series and the face of Gucci Cosmetics’ first ever collection, Charlotte is often spotted wearing the Italian brand’s designs at events including Monaco National Day and the annual Met Gala. Her loyalty to the brand has stood the test of time and a change of creative direction. Opting for natural makeup, the 31-year-old mother of one kept it simple in a black T-shirt and a leather flower print skirt with rhinestones from the Gucci Spring/Summer 2017 collection and pink pumps. Charlotte's history with Gucci extends far beyond the glamour of runway shows and red carpets. In May 2010, Gucci sponsored her when she debuted as a promising rider for the Global Champions Tour that started in Valencia, Spain, through Europe and finished in Rio de Janeiro, wearing an exclusive equestrian wardrobe, designed entirely for her by then Gucci creative director Frida Giannini. In 2014 she competed in the Gucci Paris Masters. Instagram sensation and style blogger Louis Pisano writes SuperficialLivingDiary.com. Article first published September 21, 2017.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZFmVRsQho4Y The inaugural “Monte-Carlo Gala for the Global Ocean” will be held on the exclusive Terraces of the Opera of Monte-Carlo on Thursday, September 28, during the Monaco Yacht Show. Proceeds will support the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation’s initiatives in favour of a sustainable global ocean. Presided over by HSH Prince Albert and hosted by Global Fundraising Chairman Milutin Gatsby, the inaugural Global Ocean Gala will honour Leonardo DiCaprio for his outstanding actions for the preservation of our planet. During the evening, Simon de Pury will conduct a live auction, which will be 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. Uma Thurman, Goldie Hawn, Andy Garcia, Kevin Spacey, Eva Longoria, Madonna, Joe Pesci, Martin Scorsese, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Tobey Maguire, Enric Sala and Terry Tamminen are among they Event Chairs for the fundraiser, confirming their commitment for the conservation of our ocean. Representing more than 70 percent of the planet’s surface and 97 percent of the biosphere, the global ocean plays a key role in climate regulation, producing 50 percent of the oxygen we breathe and absorbing 25 percent of the carbon dioxide released in the atmosphere. Since its inception in 2006, the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation has clearly positioned the global ocean among its top priorities. The Foundation’s activities include efforts to better understand the environmental dangers to which our ocean is exposed, fight against plastic pollution, strengthen and develop marine protected areas, conserve endangered species, and promote innovative solutions for a sustainable ocean.

On Tuesday, the Association of Women Entrepreneurs of Monaco (Les Femmes Chefs d’Entreprises de Monaco, or ACFEM) were guests of Philip Cullazo at L’Orangerie for an introduction to the Monaco Spritz. A dozen women in various fields, from Monte Carlo Beauty skincare to Cicolella olive oil, came to the atelier at 9 rue de la Turbie to learn about the only made in Monaco orange liqueur, which uses 600 bitter orange trees from avenue Grande-Bretagne, and boulevards Suisse, Italie and Moulins. After a tour of the premises by Mr Cullazo, the group enthusiastically sampled the Monaco Spritz – a combination of L'Orangerie, Prosecco and orange zest. Held on the third Tuesday of each month, ACFEM’s networking evenings from 6:30 pm to 8 pm bring together female business entrepreneurs in Monaco who are not only involved in the economic life of the Principality but who also actively help to promote its business development. Different themes, which can be in English or French, include seminars on inheritance (September 21) or cybersecurity (October 19). “ACFEM has around 50 members of various nationalities,” Secretary General Caterina Reviglio Sonnino told Monaco Life, “and we welcome any woman that is an owner or manager of a Monaco business that is registered with the Expansion Économique.” In addition to Thursday night gatherings, the non-profit organisation has a meeting over the lunch hour on the first Tuesday of the month at the Maison des Associations to discuss, amongst other subjects, how to defend the rights and interests of women in business and how to promote the network of women entrepreneurs in the Principality. The Association of Women Entrepreneurs was first launched in France in 1945 by Yvonne Foinant to offer solidarity and friendship for women entrepreneurs, and the network has since expanded to 40 countries on five continents. The Monaco branch of World Association of Women Entrepreneurs was created on July 15, 2004, under the impetus of the Chamber of Economic Development of Monaco (CDE), which two years ago became the Monaco Economic Board. Its first president was Elisabeth Ritter Moati. Today Hilde Heye Haneuse holds that title. For more, visit Les Femmes Chefs d’Entreprises de Monaco website.
