Many top sportsmen and women and entrepreneurs figured among over 200 guests at the exceptional event. The young Monegasque pianist Stella Almondo also came, to give a piano recital.

Works of art, wines, culinary, tourist and artistic experiences, or sports accessories signed by famous athletes… The gala featured the auction of many items to raise funds for the Princess’ Foundation and the Courchevel Sports Club. The auction, with Christie’s International Director Julien Brunie wielding the gavel, was a great success.
