The Global Gift Gala may have been scaled back this year due to the pandemic and health restrictions, but the occasion was as memorable as always
Now in its ninth year The Global Gift Gala – under the leadership of the kinetic force of energy that is Maria Bravo, was once again one of the summer season highlights.
Held for the first time at Marbella Arena, guests included philanthropist Barry Skolnik, international artists such as Amaury Nolasco, Luis Fonsi and Gary Dourdan, businessmen and entrepreneurs Carlos de Quinto, Alejandro Sáez, Luis Casanovas and Mateo Conde, politicians including the mayor of Estepona, José María García Urbano, Isabel Cintado, Councilor for Social Rights of Marbella, and the Councilor for Sports, Manuel Cardeña. Others included Ana García Segundo, Miss World 2020, and Nobel Peace Prize 2020 finalist, Ray Cazorla,
The 250 guests were treated to performances by Tallia Storm, who was discovered by Sir Elton John and debuted a new single as well as by Lorena Medina, Angélica de la Riva, The Vintage Experience and Gary Dourdan, who proved his versatility as a singer songwriter!
The most special guests, however, were the inspirational young people who have benefited from the work of the Global Gift Foundation, and it was they who were awarded the biggest round of applause on the night.
