Eva returns to Dubai with Shilpa Shetty
WE WERE WONDERING whether, without the accompanying Dubai International Film Festival taking place this year, The Global Gift Gala would return. Turns out, it is! The glittering pairing of celebrity and philanthropy will be back in Dubai for the sixth time on December 13. A black-tie event, to be held at the Grosvenor House, it will feature a gala dinner and auction of ‘money-can’t-buy’ items and experiences.
Funds raised at Dubai’s premiere charity event will support essential initiatives by Uae-based global philanthropic organization, Dubai Cares, and the Global Gift Foundation, to create positive change in the development, welfare, health and social inclusion of the most vulnerable people around the world.
Founder and creator of the Global Gift Foundation and Chair of the Global Gift Gala, Maria Bravo, will lead a cavalcade of international stars down the red-carpet alongside Honorary Chair, actress, producer and philanthropist Eva Longoria Bastón, as well as actress Shilpa Shetty Kundra, actor Gary Dourdan, entrepreneur Huda Kattan and pioneer in integrative medicine and author Deepak Chopra.
Adding to the glamour of the evening will be entertainment by Gary Dourdan and James Arthur, along with R&B duo Lion Babe which features Jillian Harvey – daughter of the iconic Vanessa Williams.
Maria Bravo commented: “Dubai is such a special and important part of the Global Gift Foundation’s fundraising endeavours. Through partners such as Dubai Cares we can realise our mission of ‘giving back’ and changing the lives of people around the world. We love returning to Dubai each year and meeting the organisations and individuals that help us raise funds for children and families that need our help.” For information about attending the event visit globalgiftgala.com
