Join F1 Champion and Miss Universe at Gala Dinner
The organisers of an annual charity cycling event has announced that tickets are now available for its celebration Ocean Gala Dinner, held after the cyclists have completed the challenge in Monaco, on Sunday 24th September, 2017.
The ‘Tuscany to Monaco Cycle Challenge’ will see a team of cyclists, including Mika Häkkinen, The former F1 double World Champion, undertaking a punishing 200 mile route to raise vital funds for Caudwell Children, the UK charity that provides practical and emotional support to disabled children and their families.
Following the muscle sapping three day event, riders will get the chance to let their hair down and celebrate their achievements at the stunning Monte Carlo Bay Hotel and Resort, in Monaco.
Modesta Vzesniauskaite, one of the organisers of the prestigious event, says the relaxed and sophisticated ambience of the hotel make it the perfect venue for the gala dinner. As the former Lithuanian Olympic cyclist explained: “Ticket holders will enjoy Michelin quality food and superb entertainment in this high-end, neo-classical beachfront resort.
“The night will begin at 7:00pm when guests will be welcomed on to the ‘Red Carpet’ by the gorgeous Mrs Universe France contestant, Anastasia Gorshkova, and the stunningly beautiful Mrs Universe Monaco contestant, Natalia Shapovalova. Both are currently in Durban competing in the 2017 Mrs Universe.
“They will then head through to a cocktail reception ahead of a fantastic ‘Nordic Angels’ fashion show by Marketa Häkkinen, the Czech wife of Mika Häkkinen.”
Guests will be entertained throughout the evening by a group of dancers from Lithuania, before being treated to an exclusive and intimate set of songs by Tallia Storm, the songwriting prodigy originally discovered by Elton John.
“The evening will also be full of amazing food,” said Kirsten Shore, Challenge Events Manager at Caudwell Children. “The menu is being prepared by Michelin star chef Marcel Ravin, who has an innovative culinary style.
“He blends cuisine, spices and products and original recipes from his native Caribbean home in Martinique. His food is sure to be inspired and will delight our guests.”
A highlight of the evening will be a superb silent auction that will give guests the opportunity to get their hands on a number of money can’t buy prizes and experiences.
“Following the Ocean Gala Dinner we will invite our guests to join us at an exclusive after show party at Le Blue Gin Bar,” concluded Kirsten. “Nicknamed the ‘Waterfront’ of Monaco, this beachfront space offers stunning Mediterranean views.
“We will continue the party until the early hours with special guest DJ’s hitting the decks until the sun comes up, revealing an impressive array of large yachts moored in the distance.
“It’s going to be amazing!”
