PARTY IN THE USA: Bulgari’s 125th anniversary will come to a close at the end of the year, but the party is just starting on this side of the pond. Tonight, Ricky Martin will host a dinner in Miami alongside the firm’s chief executive officer, Francesco Trapani, in honor of the Roman jewelry company’s anniversary auction for Save the Children’s Rewrite the Future campaign. Ben Stiller, Debra Messing, Jessica Biel and Selma Blair are among those who have supported and been featured in the advertising campaign, which is dedicated to provide education for eight million children living in conflicted areas. Bulgari aims to raise $15 million by the end of the year for the cause, and donated $1.5 million at the beginning of 2009. Local celebrities such as Gloria and Emilio Estefan are expected to be among the 50 guests attending the Miami dinner.
On Nov. 19, Bulgari vice chairman Nicola Bulgari and Save the Children’s president and ceo Charles MacCormack will host the likes of Jason Lewis and other celebrities at a dinner in Los Angeles to thank those who were featured in the campaign. The following night, Christie’s, which is auctioning a special collection of $6 million worth of Bulgari jewelry and watches to benefit Save the Children, will hold a party at Bulgari’s Beverly Hills store. Next month, the collection will travel to New York, where it will be auctioned at Christie’s on Dec. 8.
