LA ZAGALETA CELEBRATES ‘THE GLOBAL PARTY’ WITH A SPECTACULAR GALA DINNER Benahavís, September 21, 2011. The Global Party, a worldwide project two years in the making, was finally celebrated at La Zagaleta on Thursday, September 15, as only one of the four parties held in Spain.
The Global Party, the brainchild of Lord Stanley Fink and David Johnstone secured 80 of the best venues in 61 cities around the world, from Brisbane to Cape Town to New Delhi and Washington DC, asking them to simultaneously celebrate the biggest party ever imagined, all inspired by the adventures and travels of Phileas Fogg.
The party, hosted by Ignacio Pérez Díaz, was held as a gala dinner at one of La Zagaleta’s signature villas. Prior to walking the red carpet, 100 select guests from more than 10 nationalities were taken to the house in top-of-the-line Rolls Royce and BMWs, courtesy of Concesionarios Guarnieri.
Distinguished guests from the entertainment, banking and entrepreneurial worlds, and residents of La Zagaleta enjoyed caviar from PSN Caviar and champagne from Mumm before taking a seat for a night full of surprises. The night opened with a typical Spanish performance from La Reina Gitana, and midway through dinner, a prize draw took place, bringing in gifts from Emeshel, Óptica Banús, Guarnieri, Tiara Decoración, Bang & Olufsen, FanStudio, Mumm, and Cartier. The communications and PR agency La Difference also helped to make the night a resounding success.
As a closing treat during dessert, Cartier launched a fashion show, with models swaying between the tables donning the brand’s most spectacular pieces.
Guests enjoyed the rest of the night dancing to the sounds of Yanela Brooks, known as the Queen of Soul of the Costa del Sol.
Undoubtedly one of the most commented parties held at La Zagaleta, the company’s directors were proud to be part of such an important cause. “It is an honor to support 15 charities, from Tusk to ARK, all of which contribute greatly to a better society. All of this while bringing together the world’s elite and helping each other to boost our brands on a broader level,” says Ignacio Pérez Díaz, Business Development Director of La Zagaleta.
While The Global Party has finalized, plans are underway to celebrate a second round of The Global Party in 2013, under a 360º theme – 360 parties in 24 hours.
