The Monaco Red Cross Grande BraderiePublished on 13.10.2022
On Friday 21st October and Saturday 22nd October 2022 the Monaco Red Cross Grande Braderie will be taking place in the Fontvieille Marquee. This traditional sale is one of the flagship events of the year. It provides an opportunity for individuals from Monaco and the neighbouring area to hunt out a good bargain whilst at the same time supporting a worthy cause.
The Monaco Red Cross Grande Braderie: a key charity event
Since 2004, when the very first sale took place and which at the time was held in the forecourt of the Red Cross, this charity event has steadily grown over the years. The Red Cross Grande Braderie offers visitors an opportunity to enjoy a pleasant moment and to discover the values of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement in a fun setting, whilst doing a good deed.
Last year over a 2-day period, approximately 3,000 visitors came to the Braderie. The total profits raised amounted to close to €100,000, which was used throughout the year for various actions conducted by the Red Cross.
Around 200 volunteers are involved in the organisation of the event, to ensure that everyone is able to have a good time and pick up some bargains.
The Monaco Braderie: an opportunity to find a bargain
During the two-day event, everyone will have a chance to find something to their liking in every price range with luxury clothing for babies, children, women, and men. You will also find fine leather goods, fashion accessories, baby equipment, toys, furniture, ornaments, and jewellery…
This is a great opportunity to get some very good bargains and to find some fantastic deals, and at the same time show your support whilst making some eco-friendly purchases. On your marks – the biggest bargains are to be grabbed as soon as the doors open!
