 Red Carpet for blue oceans: International celebrities supports the 2nd Monte Carlo Gala for the Global Ocean.

The charity event is organized by the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation and Milutin Gatsby, Global Fundraising Chairman with the support of the Steering Committee, which includes the Monaco Yacht Show Organizers.

Madonna, Li Bingbing, Orlando Bloom, Adrien Brody, Gerard Butler, Pierce Brosnan, Robert Davi, Andy Garcia, Hugh Grant, Goldie Hawn, Eva Longoria, Olga Kurylenko, Robert F Kennedy Jr, Diane Lane, Jacques Perrin, Robin Thicke and Chris Tucker will serve as Event Chairs.

Event Co-Chairs, Toni Garrn, Alina Baikova, Constance Jablonski, Hailey Clauson, Karlie Kloss, Karolina Kurkova, Adriana Lima, Natasha Poly, Sara Sampaio, Shanina Shaik and Josephine Skriver have also joined the initiative to raise awareness on the necessity to take action in order to keep our ocean healthy.

The Queen of Disco, Gloria Gaynor will perform during this unforgettable evening, as well as the legendary Nile Rodgers & CHIC, the Norwegian duo Madcon and the world class mentalist Lior Suchard.

“The ocean is our lifeblood. Our living standards, our economy and even our health depends on it. However, pressures from climate change and marine pollution are putting our ocean under severe stress. I believe that there is hope, if we work hand-in-hand. Fundraising opportunities like the Monte-Carlo Gala for the Global Ocean are thus critical to pursue this long term action for ocean conservation” said HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco.

With an exceptional auction led by Simon de Pury, the proceeds of the Gala will support the Foundation’s priority marine programmes: plastic pollution, scientific studies on acidification, coral protection, marine protected areas, endangered species and innovative technologies. “Generosity and awareness are the keys to our future on this planet and to saving our ocean” said Milutin Gatsby.

Last year, for its first edition, Academy Award-winning actor Leonardo DiCaprio was honoured with “The Award of the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation” for his outstanding work to protect and preserve our shared planet.

The inaugural 2017 Gala also enabled the Foundation to implement 37 new marine conservation projects around the world and 2 programmes to fight against plastic pollution (check www.montecarlogala.org for more information).

The Monte Carlo Gala for the Global Ocean is hosted by the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation, led by Bernard Fautrier, Vice President and CEO and Olivier Wenden, Executive Director, with the support of the Monaco Yacht Show, the Oceanographic Institute, the Yacht Club of Monaco, the Société des Bains de Mer and the Monaco Private Label.
