MARBELLA, Spain – Two Ford-donated EcoSports were among the stars in a prestigious charity auction in Marbella at the weekend.
The EcoSport models starred alongside Hollywood duo Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith at the annual Starlite Gala. The event was staged to raise funds for the Spanish charities Lágrimas & Favores – founded by Antonio Banderas - and Niños en Alegría. Last year the event raised €267,861.
Two awards were presented: the Starlite Gala Humanitarian Award 2013 went to Spanish singer-song writer Alejandro Sanz, and the Starlite Gala Philanthropy Award 2013 to Argentine model Valeria Mazza. The event was hosted by Spanish TV presenter Anne Igartiburu and actor Imanol Arias.
Guests attending the event bid for a number of unique experiences and products. Ford’s donated EcoSport models – signed by Banderas - were a major attraction.
