Video Clips Episode 10: Neuschwansteiner raises funds for World CHILDHOOD Foundation founded by H.M. Queen Silvia of Sweden


As we are quickly approaching the 2016 FORMULA 1 ETIHAD AIRWAYS ABU DHABI GRAND PRIX, it’s a great time to look back at our successful Abu Dhabi debut just about a year ago.

Check out this first Video of a small series of our own star-studded invitational event together with our friends from the Jumeirah at Etihad Towers who hosted us fabulously at their very own restaurant Pearls by Michael Caines 2-star MICHELIN chef as well as Williams chef, welcoming glamorous guests including Royalties, Hollywood stars and Formula One teams.

We feel especially honoured that H.H. Sheikh Hamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Chairman of the Crown Prince Court and brother of reigning Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, H.H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed al Nayhan, graced our event with his presence.

Our fundraiser in aid of the World CHILDHOOD Foundation founded by H.M. Queen Silvia of Sweden, showed an exclusive photographic exhibition courtesy of Sutton Images, celebrating six years of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix™.

VIP appearances included H.R.H. Prince Leopold of Bavaria (curator of the World CHILDHOOD Foundation), Hollywood star Tyrece Gibson (Fast and Furious), Former F1™ team owner and celebrity Eddie Jordan, Hermann Tilke (Tilke Engineering designed and built Yas Marina Circuit), Star-chef Michael Caines (Williams F1), award winning motorsport photographers Mark and Keith Sutton, Lotus F1™ team principal Federico Gastaldi and other special guests.

On behalf of CHILDHOOD foundation trustees, Her Majesty Queen Silvia of Sweden and charity patron and Neuschwansteiner Ambassador, H.R.H. Prince Leopold of Bavaria, we would like to take this opportunity again to thank our partners who donated exclusive prizes and memorabilia: Jumeirah at Etihad Towers, Pearls by Michael Caines, Pindar boat, Sonia Irvine and Amber Lounge, Jalboat and Nabholz “For living legends”.
