Night of the Snow

500 people to attend 25th anniversary gala on 23 February 2008!

Each year, 330 guests from Switzerland and elsewhere gather for the traditional snow-themed Nuit des Neigesgala. The aim of the event remains the same: to raise funds for one Valaisan and one international charitable organisation. To date, the Nuit des Neiges has distributed more than two million Swiss francs to some 50 associations. François Barras, the founder of the Nuit des Neiges, puts the event’s success down to the following: «As well as the charitable aspect of the evening, the guests expect a beautiful backdrop, high-quality entertainment, a gourmet meal and the attendance of public figures who are well aware of the importance of such an event. The committee therefore works to fulfil these expectations.»

The Nuit des Neiges foundation has decided that funds from its anniversary event will be donated to support cancer research. The recipients of the 2008 donations are: the A.V.E.C association founded by Professor Khayat and the Sepp Blatter Football and Humanity Foundation. Guests at the gala will include: Professor Khayat, Joseph S. Blatter, Michel Platini, Christian and Adriana Karembeu, Enrico Macias, Irma Dütsch, Kubilay Turkyilmaz and Professor Pitanguy.
