On May 23, 2012, at the Hotel de Paris in Monte-Carlo, Monaco, His Serene Highness Prince Albert II attended the charity gala event entitled, Nights in Monaco. Accompanying the sovereign prince was former President of the United States, Bill Clinton, Baroness Elisabeth Anne de Massy and her lovely daughter, Melanie-Antoinette.
Guests included actress Diane Kruger and her actor boyfriend from the television show, Dawson’s Creek, Lydia Fenet, Sagine Archer, actress Rose McGowen, billionaires, models, singers, and that guy from the movie Titanic who played Rose’s fiancé.
The purpose of the charity gala was to raise money for the Fondation Prince Albert II de Monaco and the William J. Clinton Foundation which “…will be shared equally…” according to Nights in Monaco organizers.
Guests lucky enough to attend the event paid up to $100,000 to chill with the awesome former President and the sovereign prince. They, the guests, also participated in an auction where they received some pretty cool gifts including a fun-filled day with Prince Albert II and Princess Charlene. Well, actually, not all day, but a nice private tour of the pretty Palais Princier de Monaco:
…[where] you and your guest will be bedazzled by the exquisite Grand Appartements de Reception, including the majestic Throne Room, the elegant and charming Salons and much more. You will also visit the Cour d’Honneur (palace courtyard) where their magnificent princely wedding took place and a visit to the Chapelle Palatine. Your visit will end in the stunning gardens, around the swimming pool, where you will enjoy some refreshments and finger foods with Their Serene Highnesses.
This experience also includes two VIP places at the prestigious ‘International Jumping of Monte-Carlo’, taking place in June 2013…
Other prizes included a trip to crappy Los Angeles, CA (I can say that, by the way, because I live here :) ), a citrine and diamond ring from Guli Collections, attend the Formula One “Meet & Greet”, diamonds from Brazilian jewelry designer, Carla Amorim, and much more.
