The Third Annual WWF Fundraiser Auction

The Stelios Philanthropic Foundation and Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation joined forces to magic-up a third annual fundraiser auction in aid of The World Wide Fund for Nature Charity (WWF).

The auction, held in Monaco and hosted by the Space Gallery St Barth in July raised €190,000 for the charity that safeguards the world’s most precious species and habitats.

Items ranging from unusual jewellery to rare paintings were sold, resulting in the record amount being raised for the event.

Thanks to generous auction item donors, the event saw the highest number of pieces for auction ever presented.

The Stelios Philanthropic Foundation describes itself as a “foundation committed to dynamic philanthropy”, with areas of interest in education, entrepreneurship and environment. It is headed by Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou, who is best known for founding the EasyJet airline. The Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation is also committed to helping environmental charities and projects. Both Monaco-based Foundations have collaborated in the past to make successful events such as the Third Annual Fundraiser.
