Eva Longoria was the centre of attention as both host and sponsor of the Global Gift Foundation’s Philanthropic Weekend. Among the many other famous faces at the glitzy Marbella event were stars such as Eva LaRue (CSI Miami), Amaury Nolasco (Prison Break) and even J Union’s JJ Hamblett. The weekend included lunch and golf on Saturday followed by a gala dinner on Sunday evening.
Having first come to the Costa del Sol eight years ago in order to appear in a beer advertisement, Eva told SUR that she feels at home in Marbella. During this most recent visit, she made the most of the area’s beaches and restaurants.
The stars attending the Philanthropic Weekend spent Saturday evening in Olivia Valere’s restaurant Babilonia where they were treated to a flamenco themed dinner, something that particularly captivated those celebrities who had not been in Spain before.
The weekend, which raised more than 140,000 euros for the Global Gift Foundation, came to an end on Sunday evening with a final gala dinner at the hotel Meliá Don Pepe.
