One of Marbella’s most star studded events of the summer, the Global Gift Gala, has become the latest victim of coronavirus.

Scheduled to take place in August, the event regularly attracts both Spanish and international stars such as Eva Longoria, founder and president of the Global Gift Foundation María Bravo, DJ Luis Fonsi, actor Gary Dourdan, singer Chenoa and a host of celebrities from the Spanish social scene.

Earlier this week, however, Maria Bravo announced that the Gala had been cancelled.

‘With a heavy heart and due to recent news of Covid 19 outbreaks’ she wrote, ‘we feel the moral obligation and responsibility to prioritise and protect the health of Global Gifters attending our Galas, therefore we have made the very difficult decision to postpone this year’s Global Gift Gala Marbella’

The Global Gift Gala is the latest of a series of social events and concerts to be cancelled in Marbella due to the coronavirus pandemic.
