Ten years ago, the first fundrais­ing gala din­ner or­gan­ised by the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foun­da­tion that took place in Sin­ga­pore set the tone for its fu­ture edi­tions: a classy and highly exclusive soiree, which would take place once every two years, at­tended by the city’s most distin­guished and al­tru­is­tic in­di­vid­u­als. Monaco’s reign­ing monarch, Prince Albert II, who founded the foun­da­tion to cham­pion en­vi­ron­men­tal pro­tec­tion and sustainable de­vel­op­ment, al­ways makes it a point to at­tend and wel­come like-minded guests. And with Sin­ga­pore branch pres­i­dent Jacky Deromedi’s cre­ative eye, the din­ner has never failed to cap­ti­vate with its decor—a ball­room trans­formed into the North Pole one year and filled with minia­ture hot-air bal­loons il­lus­trat­ing a travel theme an­other year. This year, the Ball in Monaco, which is pre­sented by Ma­rina Bay Sands, cel­e­brates its 10th year of fundrais­ing for the foun­da­tion in Sin­ga­pore on November 9 at the ho­tel’s Grand Ball­room with a birth­day party fit for roy­als. It will fea­ture mes­meris­ing wall pro­jec­tions within the ball­room, with a beau­ti­ful three-di­men­sional bal­loon-themed photo wall. For din­ner, the culinary team at Adrift by David My­ers has crafted an in­no­va­tive menu. A live auc­tion is also in the pro­gramme, where guests can bid for ex­quis­ite items such as an art­work by famed Amer­i­can artist Jeff Koons and an FP Journe time­piece. fpa2.org
