Festival of surprises for the Gazelles gala evening

Array
Summary

The Gazelles were decked out in their best finery for the final evening of the Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles du Maroc.

The gala was attended by the Gazelles’ loved ones in addition to all the event’s partners, who had made the trip to Essaouira specially for this event. The festivities took place in a large marquee tent decorated in Moroccan style. “It’s grandiose, magical!” said Nathalie of Team 105 (Nathalie ROSSINI-RACAUD / Nathalie LEVERT - UMANOVE). The evening’s surprises included a phone call from Christine Lagarde, Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF).I am full of admiration and respect for everything you have accomplished” she declared, live from New York.

The event partners were thanked once again for their support, and the winners of each competition class were then called to the stage to receive more gifts: the iconic golden sand ladder necklace, symbol of the Rallye; a Saint-Honoré Paris watch; and Afriquia fuel coupons. The diner was accompanied by beverages supplied by Rallye partners Tsarine, Les Celliers de Meknès and Les eaux d’Oulmès.

A musical evening

Images and videos of the Rallye were projected on big screens, to the sound of “ohs” and “ahs” whenever a team recognized themselves. Emotions ran high as the room watched scenes from this year’s medical caravan in a video on Coeur de Gazelles.

Sophie Tapie, de l’équipage 216, a interprété deux chansons de son répertoire suivi de Jérémy Frérot qui a fait la surprise de venir et de chanter plusieurs titres réunissant toutes les Gazelles sur scène autour de lui.

After desert, it was time to dance! The Gazelles hit the dance floor, eager to enjoy one last evening together and create ensemble and create still more good memories of their incomparable adventure.

#FreeNasrin

Dominique Serra has dedicated this 29th edition to Nasrin Sotoudeh – prominent Iranian lawyer and human rights advocate – who has been sentenced to 38 years in prison and 148 lashes for “inciting corruption and prostitution” by defending women who took off their headscarves in public.

I encourage everyone to sign the petition for her release.
