Madonna to chair the Monte Carlo Gala for the Global Ocean 2018
Madonna will chair the second edition of the Monte Carlo Gala for the Global Ocean, which will take place on Wednesday, September 26th 2018, presided over by Prince Albert II, to raise money for ocean conservation.
The Monte Carlo Gala for the Global Ocean is a major fundraising event in the heart of Monte Carlo, organized by Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation in order to support its worldwide initiatives in favour of a sustainable ocean. It will take place at the most exclusive venue of the Principality, the Terraces of the Opera of Monte Carlo.
Taking care of the planet is incredibly important to me
“Taking care of the planet is incredibly important to me, so I am delighted to be supporting HSH Prince Albert of Monaco and his foundation,” says Madonna. “The serenity and life of the oceans are under threat and we can make a difference now and should do everything possible to preserve it. The Monte Carlo Gala in September couldn’t be more needed to raise the money to help save our oceans.”
With special performances to be announced shortly, this year’s Monte Carlo Gala for the Global Ocean promises to be a spectacular affair and a rare opportunity to participate in a collective action to address a global challenge.
Leonardo DiCaprio was responsible for Madonna and Prince Albert II crossing paths last year at the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation’s fundraiser in St Tropez, where Madonna performed a surprise series of hits to help raise $30 million for the planet.
