On Sunday 5 July, the Hotel Gran Meliá Don Pepe was the setting for the fourth Marbella Global Gift Gala. The three foundations benefitting from this year’s event will be the Eva Longoria Foundation, the Global Gift Foundation and the Bertin Osborne Foundation.
Set in the beautiful gardens of this popular 5 star hotel, preparations were well under way for this prestigious event when we arrived with Marbella Now´s Nicole King who was there to interview people for next week´s show.
Two of the charity´s founders, Maria Bravo and Alina Peralta were there with guest of honour hostess Eva Longoria who was wearing a stunning backless dress by designer Gyunel.
Bertin Osborne, his wife Fabiola Martinez and daughters Eugenia, Claudia and Alejandra also attended, along with Isabel Gemio, Amaury Nolasco and Eva LaRue who were presenting at the Gala. Taboo (Black Eyed Peas) was also there to entertain the guests with a performance.
This year´s ‘Global Gift Humanitarian Award’ went to Padre Ángel and the ‘Global Gift Our Heroes Award’ went to Samantha Vallejo-Nájera. There were emotional speeches by Bertin Osborne and Eva Longoria who thanked everyone for making it possible for the foundations to go forward.
The guests enjoyed a sumptuous menu arranged by Michelin star chef’s Diego Guerrero of Dstage and Diego del Rio of El Lago together with the amazing chefs at the Hotel Gran Melia Don Pepe. The desserts were by master confectioner Jean Philippe Darcis.
