Monika Bacardi at the traditional Christmas Ball with her daughter Maria-Luisa - Lady Monika Bacardi

Monika Bacardi was accompanied by her daughter Maria-Luisa for this event, which launched the end of year celebrations in the Principality.

This year, the traditional Christmas Ball, held under the patronage of H. S. H. Princess Charlène of Monaco, was held at the Hermitage Hotel under the theme Welcome to the Jungle.

Monika Bacardi is a loyal member of the committee alongside Ekaterina Butorina, Celina Lafuente de Lavotha, Inna Maier, Sandrine Garbagnati Knoell, Elizabeth Wessel and H.S.H Camilla Bourbon des Deux-Siciles.

An auction organized by Sotheby's and a tombola raised more than 50,000 euros for the Princess Charlène of Monaco Foundation represented by its Secretary General, Mrs. Agnès Falco. Audemars Piguet, the famous watchmaker, sponsored the evening and donated a Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph watch.
