IWC hosts a Charity Benefit at the Park Hyatt Vendome
Sep '08
Swiss watch manufacturer IWC Schaffhausen hosted a charity dinner with Tony Parker and Eva Longoria to raise money for three different charities: Make A Wish, Eva's Heroes and Nine Lives.

Their goal was to surpass last year's results and they succeeded - $321,000 was raised vs $165,000 in 2006 and $300,000 last year.

IWC auctioned off two exclusive items: the IWC Portuguese Chrono-Automatic and a painting by renowned artist, Noe Two, which was commissioned exclusively for the event by sports legend, Zinedine Zidane.

Some of the other items up for auction: a pair of tennis shoes from the US Open donated by rising star Jo Wilfried Tsonga, a trip for four to the United States to watch the San Antonio Spurs in action and visit the set of Desperate Housewives, two tickets to the Wimbledon finals in 2009 and an apprenticeship with world renowned pastry chef Pierre Herme to discover the secrets of the macaron ... .

Along with Tony Parker, Eva Longoria and the Parker family, some other notables were in attendance including the US Ambassador, Mr. Craig Stapleton, French billionaire and watch collector Olivier Dassault and Olympic All-Stars such as David Douillet, Ladji Doucoure, Richard Dacoury, Leslie Djhone and Jo Wilfried Tsonga.

IWC Schaffhausen is incredibly happy to be associated with Make A Wish France, Eva's Heroes and Nine Lives and hope to continue this work in the future to help support and give hope to terminally ill children.
