Ben Stiller, Susan Sarandon, Duchess of York, Madeline Stowe and Caroline Stanbury to attend ‘Artisits for Peace and Justice’ Dubai event presented by Bovet 1822
Artists for Peace and Justice (APJ) and Dubai Cares are set to bring the glamorous BOVET 1822 ‘Brilliant is Beautiful’ event to Dubai for the first time this December, raising critical funds for both organisations. The gala dinner and live auction will take place on December 7th, 2018 at the Grand Millennium Business Bay.
The Brilliant is Beautiful fund raises vital funding for educational programs serving some of the most needy young girls in Haiti, Pakistan, Peru and Uganda.
Co-hosted and attended by Hollywood stars, philanthropists and APJ board members Ben Stiller and Susan Sarandon, the gala will also be hosted by Sarah Ferguson Duchess of York, actress and APJ board member Madeleine Stowe, and Dubai-based personality and APJ advisory board member Caroline Stanbury. The event is being organised by Fete Events and Kris Fade will act as MC.
Proceeds from APJ’s ‘Brilliant is Beautiful’ evening will benefit programs by Dubai Cares, a UAE-based global Philanthropic organization focused on providing quality education to children and young people in developing countries, and the ‘Brilliant is Beautiful Global Fund for Women and Girls’ Education’, a scholarship fund for underprivileged young women and girls with programmes running throughout the developing world including Pakistan, Uganda, Peru and Haiti.
Caroline Stanbury, Dubai-based socialite and reality television star best known for her appearances on the UK’s ‘Ladies of London’, has worked with APJ to bring ‘Brilliant is Beautiful’ to Dubai after helming successful editions of the event in London in 2016 and 2017. Stanbury aims to make the event an annual addition to Dubai’s fundraising calendar.
Marchelle L. Sellers, Chief Executive Officer of Artists for Peace and Justice commented: “We’re excited to be bringing ‘Brilliant is Beautiful’ to Dubai for the first time, and to be working with Dubai Cares to bring real change to the lives of many young women and girls around the world. This event has been made possible largely by our long term partner, Mr. Raffy, owner of BOVET 1822, who we can’t thank enough for his generous support over the last 5 years. We’re already looking forward to future events in this great city.”
H.E. Tariq Al Gurg, Chief Executive Officer at Dubai Cares commented: “Dubai Cares recognizes the important role Artists for Peace and Justice (APJ) is playing around the world through funds raised at events such as ‘Brilliant is Beautiful’. We’re very pleased to partner with APJ to raise funds that support the education of children in need. We hope that our collaborative efforts will enable us to empower the next generation with the skills they need to thrive.”
