Maserati GB and its London retailer supported the 2009 Queen Charlotte's Ball which raised £60,000 for specialised medical research. Debutantes arrived in chauffeur driven Maserati Quattroportes.
The UK's first drive of the Maserati GranCabrio in 2010 was won in a charity ball auction undertaken during the revival of the Queen Charlotte's Ball. Said Queen Charlotte founded the Ball over 250 years ago to raise funds for mothers and babies. The Ball went back to London after a 12-year absence. The event marks the traditional "coming out" ceremony also known as the Debutante Ball which was also used to mark the beginning of the season.
Beautiful young ladies wearing Pronovias white gowns entered the Durbar Court venue in chauffeur driven Maserati Quattroportes. Their Mikimoto diamonds and pearls made them look even more radiant. HRH Princess Katarina of Yugoslavia, HH Princess Olga Romanov and Their Graces The Duke and Duchess of Somerset were there to receive the classy girls.
Maserati GB and its London distributor HR OWEN Sports Cars supported the Ball during which £60,000 was raised. The money is earmarked for the Wolfston and Weston Research Centre for Family Health at the Hammersmith and Queen Charlotte's Hospital site of Imperial College London. About £500,000 a year is needed to help in the research of premature birth, miscarriage and infertility, so if you can donate a little bit go ahead.
