Grand Charity Ball

October 28, 2017
Beau-Rivage Palace
Lausanne, Switzerland

Treasures of Russia

“Treasures of Russia” was the first Russian Ball in Switzerland, reviving the tradition after a long break. The Charity Ball was held at the aristocratic hotel Beau-Rivage Palace: within its interiors full of spirit of the world history, live Russian music was played, and dancing couples dressed in ballroom clothing were dancing polonaises. The event included a bright dance and concert program, a gala dinner, a cocktail and a charity auction.

Russian culture is well known for its literature, musical and ballet heritage that embody values such as dignity, compassion and spiritual subtlety. “Treasures of Russia” Charity Ball united the people who are deeply attuned to the Russian culture.

The atmosphere of a classical ball, the performance of famous Russian artists and the high society made the Great Charity Ball in Lausanne a extraordinary event that let the guests give their souls a rush of genuine feelings.

The event was held with the support of the Embassy of the Russian Federation in Bern, Switzerland.
