Created by Princess Grace of Monaco in 1954, the Rose Ball is held every March by the Société des Bains de Mer. The funds raised are donated to the Princess Grace Foundation, which offers assistance to people in need and disadvantaged children.
Since it was created in 1954, the Rose Ball has been the leading society event on the Monegasque calendar, ahead of the Red Cross Ball. Presided over by Prince Albert II and Princess Caroline of Hanover, it brings together the aristocracy and international high society for a festive evening in Monaco. A symbol of glamour, the Rose Ball keeps the legend of Monte-Carlo alive.
