To mark its 10th anniversary, Monaco Disease Power organised a unique evening on Thursday, June 15, at the Monaco Yacht Club, which featured a mystery raffle, including a watch offered by Franck Muller, a trip to Mauritius with a stay at the Hotel Anahita and a cruise on one of Star Clippers’ splendid ships.
An auction was also on tap, with a work by artist Robert Combas, OneTeas and Jean-François Bollié, but also, and especially, a watch offered and having belonged to Prince Albert.
The evening was an opportunity to thank all the generous donors and volunteers who have helped the association to grow and develop over the last 10 years.
Prince Albert, Honorary President of the association, was the evening’s host. Other important personalities who helped the cause were Didier Gamerdinger, Minister of Health and Social Affairs, Mayor Georges Marsan, Laurent Nouvion and Stéphane Valeri.
Among other distinguished guests were Elena Cuomo, President of the Cuomo Foundation, Elena Silvodaeva, patron of the association, Patrick Baudry, astronaut and sponsor of the association, and Professor Catherine Barthelemy.
During this milestone birthday party, more than €300,000 was raised. This sum will be reinvested in the extension of “La Maison d’Amélie”, whose purpose is to offer stays of respite to children or adults suffering from mental or physical handicap or mental illnesses. By enlarging the house, the Monaco Disease Power team will double its capacity.
