Marbella once again showed that it has a heart, as well as soul, at the Global Gift Gala last weekend.

Founders Eva Longoria and Maria Bravo hosted the black tie event, now in its eighth year, in the beautiful grounds of the Gran Melia Don Pepe.

More than 280 guests enjoyed an evening of speeches, awards and music, with performances from stars including Chambao’s La Mari, DJ Adassiya and West End star Brenda Edwards.

As well as a host of well known Spanish actors, models, celebrities and chefs, we spotted CSI actor Gary Dourdan. The weekend also included the Marbella Fashion Show in Puerto Banus and a visit to Casa Global Gift in Marbella.

And Eva proved that she is a working mum by appearing on stage at the Gala with her young son Santiago!
