Marbella, 26th July 2017. Last weekend, Maria Bravo was accompanied by Eva Longoria Bastón, Amaury Nolasco and Lorena Bernal to celebrate the first philanthropic actions undertaken by Global Gift on the island of Mallorca. On Saturday, July 22nd the Balearic government offered Global Gifters a tour of the city to get to know the most beautiful places on the island, finalizing in Port Adriano on the Eastern Coast. Maria Bravo, together with Honorary Ambassador of its foundation, Eva Longoria Bastón, and Global Gifters and presenters of the 6th The Global Gift Gala, Marbella, actor Amaury Nolasco and Lorena Bernal, inaugurated the first Global Gift Casino Night in Mallorca where more than 200 guests played roulette, Black Jack and Texas Hold’Em to benefit Global Gift Foundation. Watches of Switzerland provided the grand prize of the night, a watch valued at € 11,500. Participants of the first Global Gift Casino Night received a gift from the casino in appreciation of their participation, as well as enjoying cocktails and live music.
On Sunday 23rd July Global Gifters enjoyed a boat day trip in a Mangusta VIP One kindly donated by VIP-Yachting, followed by lunch at the Beach Club Gran Folies de Cala Llamp. In the evening, GPRO Valparaiso hosted a solidarity cocktail attended by all supporting brands and local companies that participated in the philanthropic weekend. Accompanied by the hotel director Toni Ferrer, Eva Longoria Bastón, Maria Bravo and Amaury Nolasco chatted with the guests expressing their gratitude for the two Philanthropic days celebrated in Palma. The soiree ended in the Gran Meliá de Mar where they dined at Arrels by Marga Coll. Lexus was responsible for facilitating the cars during the philanthropic weekend in Balearics.
María Bravo said: “We have spent two magical days in Mallorca and we are looking forward to doing something bigger next summer. This year, we have focused on doing small actions to see the response from people and it has all been a success. Global Gift Casino Night has been something we’ve never done in Europe before and this has been a fun way to raise money. We would love to repeat it next year by developing this action to something larger. Valparaíso has also supported us entirely by donating all the hotel rooms, the cocktail for sponsors & donors, etc. Port Adriano has demonstrated its most supportive side and we have been able to enjoy a spectacular dinner. We will explore the possibilities to bring The Global Gift Gala to Port Adriano next year”.
Amaury Nolasco said: “I really enjoyed the evening at the casino, because we love to play cards when we are among friends and to play whilst helping others is much more fun, besides you do not need much money to contribute your little grain of sand”.
