Princess Grace Gala

The Princess Grace Gala was hosted by Princess Grace Foundation-USA, honoring Julie Andrews for her contribution to the arts and awarding emerging artists with scholarships to pursue their craft. The Barbie brand served as a silver sponsor and supported the Gala by donating the Grace Kelly The Bride doll and Barbie prize package to the silent auction. The Grace Kelly Bride doll was featured at the entrance of the silent auction and the prototype doll plus Design Center Tour sold for $3,000. We also had collector cards displayed at the silent auction, showcasing the complete line of Grace Kelly dolls with a special key code to purchase on Additionally, a beautiful ad was placed in the official convention booklet showing the dolls and the complete line was also featured on-screen throughout the Gala. Finally, we were told by the Foundation that Prince Albert said the Grace Kelly doll was the most beautiful doll he has ever seen of his mother.
