It was truly a special evening for the approximately 700 participants who, on Friday 16 July, gathered in the new Place of Casino and it was a privilege to be part of it. The Gala of the Monegasque Red Cross, organized by the Societé des Bains de Mer, took place outdoors and for the occasion the event became the first “Summer Concert”, starring the British artist Jamie Cullum.
