Khaleej Times - City Times - - BUZZ AROUND TOWN -

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
