Natalia Vodianova hosts Secret Garden Gala

GENEVA The Naked Heart Foundation attracted names and cash at The Secret Garden charity gala in the splendour of Coppet Castle.

Hosted by the non-profit charity’s founder, Natalia Vodianova with trustees Frederik Paulsen and Olga Litviniuk, guests included DJ Cassidy, Elsa Hosk, Petra Nemcova, Caroline Scheufele, Xenia Adonts and Alberta Ferretti among many others.

At the event on 13 June guests enjoyed Dom Pérignon cocktails with dinner by Michelin-star chefs, Philippe Chevrier and Domaine Châteauvieux.

Elsa Hosk, Natalia Vodianova and Rita Ora

Model and philanthropist Petra Nemcova presented the entertainment with performances by eight-year-old piano prodigy Elisey Mysin and the world-famous Menuhin Academy Orchestra.

Rita Ora was on form and primed guests for a set by DJ Cassidy after her performance.

A live and silent auction kept up the excitement, offering unique lots such as a meet-and-greet Elton John and exclusive shoes created in collaboration between René Caovilla and Chopard.

Natalia Vodianova and the gala committee

The black-tie gala was sponsored by Ferring Pharmaceuticals and Chopard and raised over a million CHF for children with autism and to create play facilities for affected families.

Event production was by Britta Carpigo at Mosaic Events.

Natalia Vodianova had the final word on a successful and memorable night:

“The Secret Garden is a place that makes us remember the importance and invaluable effect of family - the perfect metaphor for Naked Heart Foundation where professional family support services are at the centre of everything we do. A strong, supportive and inclusive family life is essential for child development and providing the fertile ground in which a child can flourish, and it’s especially important for those with mental, physical or sensory disabilities. I’m delighted that the gala tonight raised much-needed funds for this crucial work, also bringing awareness of special needs and the importance of professional support for these children”
