The Global Party | Celebrities, champagne and charity!


On June 27th, 28th, and 29th 2013, over 360,000 of the world’s richest, glitziest and most influential individuals will unite and come together to party, socialise and have an unashamedly fabulous night… But don’t worry, it’s all in the name of charity!

Ultimately, all funds raised go direct to a selection of worldwide charities, eliminating all costs to the organisers.

Well, prepare yourselves as modern culinary technology has made this the case exactly. Introducing Electrolux Grand Cuisine: the pioneering professional cooking system tailored to suit domesticity and some of the world’s most exquisite homes.
