Why a Gala & Ball Guérin-Boutron ?


  • We are organizing a Charity Gala and a Ball on the theme of “Marie-Antoinette & Chocolate” on Saturday, October 12th, 2019 at the “Royal Cercle Gaulois”. This is our second edition, the first having been organized on June 9, 2018 at the Hotel Métropole in Brussels.
  • This year we repeat the experience as the previous edition was a great success. With this Gala bearing the name of our chocolate house (oriented luxury and societal) we have the ambition to make it an annual reference event, a moment of interaction with the communities present on the Belgian territory and opportunities for cultural and economic promotion of Ivory Coast in the Benelux, and Benelux in Ivory Coast
  • We support a cooperative to obtain organic certification in the South-East of Ivory Coast while implementing a very strong societal action by a better purchase price to the planters, the diversification of the sources of income, protection of the environment, fight against deforestation, and support reforestation, fight against child labor, education, access to drinking water and energy. An ambitious humanist project for which we willingly solicit donations to make it achievable.
