March 14, 2011: Montblanc returned to the Oscars to co-host a star-studded event with The Weinstein Company. The cocktail event at Soho House in West Hollywood not only celebrated the Weinstein Company’s Academy Award nominees but also featured the announcement of an exciting Montblanc charity partnership benefiting the Princess Grace Foundation - USA. This announcement was made in the presence of stars like Colin Firth, Tom Hooper, Helena Bonham Carter, Jennifer Lopez, Adrien Brody, Kate Walsh, Taylor Swift, Emma Stone and many more.
Each year Montblanc announces an year-long charity initiative on the night before the Academy Awards. This year, Montblanc introduced its collaboration with the Princess Grace Foundation-USA, a non-profit organization dedicated to identifying and assisting emerging talent in theatre, dance, and film by awarding grants in the form of scholarships, apprenticeships, and fellowships through the Princess Grace Awards programme. The Foundation reflects Princess Grace of Monaco’s life-long commitment to helping emerging artists realize their potential. In the spirit of actively supporting this goal, Montblanc will make a donation of $1 million dollars to support the Princess Grace Awards program.
