Eva Longoria and Ricky Martin in Dubai This December!
Eva Longoria is headed to Dubai, people! The former Desperate Housewives actress, who's also an activist and philanthropist, will be in town for the first edition of The Global Gift Gala on 14 December at supperclub in Dubai. And there's another star joining the party! We hear that Eva will honour Ricky Martin with the Global Gift Humanitarian Award for his philanthropic work promoting the well-being of children relating to education, health and social justice.
The Global Gift Gala is an international fundraising initiative that forms part of the Global Gift Foundation platform to help raise funds and make a difference to children and women around the world. Global Gift Foundation and a local foundation of Dubai, Noor Dubai Foundation, have joined forces to raise money to provide support and medical need to vulnerable groups in Dubai with hopes to create a world free from preventable forms of blindness. In addition, Global Gift Foundation will be collaborating with The Eva Longoria Foundation and Sunrise K Foundation to help raise awareness towards women and children in need.
Eva said, "The Global Gift Foundation is really growing and so I’m delighted to be presenting the first Global Gift Gala here in Dubai, especially at the fantastic supperclub Dubai. We have had phenomenal success with our galas around the world and really hope to build on this with the support and generosity from everyone here, all of whom have been so welcoming.’
The Global Gift Gala in collaboration with Kaskada Management, will feature a red carpet, cocktail reception, dinner, live auction, award ceremony and entertainment with a special performance by US singer-songwriter Maxwell and a performance by Katie Kittermaster. Think A-list gathering all the way! Watch this space for updates!
