St. Moritz and the Engadine have always been a source of inspiration for philanthropy and helping the less fortunate in society. In the pristine alpine air, social status and monetary worth are greatly humbled in the presence of the mighty 4000-meter peaks that encompass the valley. Thanks to such immense sources of inspiration, St. Moritz often encourages great ideas and motivates people to do remarkable things.
The St. Moritz’s Soul Gala is the first official award that honors initiatives by public figures in the field of human rights and humanitarian projects who use their privileged position to do good in this world. This year the Gala will honour the charity work of Ms Sharon Stone in aid for PLANET HOPE - an non-profit organization who resources to homeless and abused mothers and their children as well as outreach to terminally ill children.
