Generous people’ Gala Dinner for Heart Fund
Hotel Intercontinental Carlton - Cannes18.05.2015
Last Monday evening, the Carlton hosted the 3rd edition of the Gala Generous People organized by The Heart Fund, an endowment fund that fights heart disease through open heart surgery, prevention campaigns and innovative solutions.
This charity evening supported by the champagne Piper-Heidsieck (official supplier of the Cannes Film Festival) gathers guests from all over the world and all the arts during the FIF. This year, the philanthropic initiative raised 5.1 million euros. A record sum perhaps reached thanks to Leonardo DiCaprio, who made his first public appearance in Cannes?
Nevertheless, the fundraiser will finance the first Heart Jet, a flying hospital that will go to the most remote areas of the world to detect and treat childhood cardiovascular diseases.
