GALA DU CŒUR: 21 children saved during an exceptional charity evening

On Tuesday 14 December, the 2nd edition of the Gala du Cœur was held in the magnificent salons of the Automobile Club de France. During this charity dinner organised with the support of Hewlett Packard Enterprise, a cheque for €252,000 was handed over to the Association in order to operate on 21 underprivileged children suffering from heart malformations in the near future.

This project was initiated in 2019 by a group of company employees Hewlett Packard Enterprise. Cancelled in 2020, we are very happy that the 2nd edition could be maintained in compliance with health regulations.

Concert by the Berthollet sisters

During this evening, 22 patrons were present and were able to enjoy a cocktail followed by a concert by Camille and Julie Berthollet concert and an exceptional dinner.

The Berthollet sisters, young classical music virtuosos, cellist and violinist respectively, did us the honour of performing on stage during a very private concert. A musical interlude out of time that transported the guests into their universe.

The evening ended in style with Alain Melon, President of HPE, presenting a cheque to Professor Francine Leca. The generous sum of €252,000 will allow 21 children waiting for heart surgery to be operated on in the near future. Once again, solidarity worked miracles during this evening! This is why we would like to thank in particular Hewlett Packard Enterprise and all the sponsors who participated in this success.
