Swiss Red Cross Gala 2018

The St.Moritz Jungle

What a weekend it was in St.Moritz – the Swiss Red Cross Gala in Hotel Kulm raised a total of 671’000 CHF for the Red Cross and its Ecuador program. The hotel was decorated like a jungle and welcomed 380 guests. Among them Swiss celebrities, politicians, sport stars and entrepreneurs. Siro Barino, founder and organiser of the Gala, understood that St.Moritz, with its selected public, is the ideal place for an international charity event so, after Zurich and Geneva, added the Engadin evening to the fund-raising calendar of events.

It was quite fun! The drinks, dinner, auctions and Tombola were followed by a lively party with DJ Antoine – the guy who makes even serious business people let go and dance.
