Hublot Supports AIDES Foundation

Dec 07, 2009
The AIDES Foundation is the main French organization, involved in fighting AIDS: it carries out preventive measures and assists people, affected by the HIV virus.

To pay tribute to the associationís 25th anniversary, the horological company Hublot pledged its support to this noble activity: two of the brandís exclusive watches were put up for an auction, conducted in the course of a Gala Dinner. The event was arranged under the Glass Window of the Paris School of Fine Arts on November 30th.

This remarkable event saw the attendance of important figures from the world of politics, arts, health and show business. Chaired by Mrs Simone Veil and Professor Francoise Barre-Sinoussi, under the auspices of Mrs Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, this special dinner welcomed 500 distinguished guests, who gladly accepted the invitation from the AIDES Foundation to support those affected by the disease.

After the exceptional concert, given by Jane Birkin, everybody was offered a chance to make a contribution by acquiring the tombola luxury lots or by bidding for the exclusive couture, perfume or timepieces.

One of the watches, provided by Hublot, was a gemstone-studded Big Bang watch, measuring 38 mm in diameter and featuring a dial, embellished with a red ribbon, which serves as a symbol of the fight against AIDS. The second Hublot watch, offered up for the sale, was the Classic Fusion All Black watch, adorned with the similar emblem.

The bidders, who succeeded in winning the auction, were extremely pleased to participate in the fight against the HIV virus by purchasing the exceptional timekeepers. As found out, Hublot, always actively involved in charity campaigns, also renders its assistance to the ICM - Paris Institute for Brain and Spinal Cord Disorders.
