“Going once, going twice…

going 20 times!“ When extravagantly decorated Christmas trees sparkle under the hammer in our
Le Restaurant, the time has come for another shower of bids at the 20th Christmas Tree Auction.
The glamorous event has become an established St. Moritz Christmas tradition with all proceeds
going to local charities. Several luxury brands – Including Cartier, Gübelin, Hauser & Wirth,
Breitling, Ogier, Bottega Veneta, Moncler, Le Lutetia Paris, Il Sereno Lago Di Como and of course
Badrutt’s Palace Hotel ourselves – are once again taking part in this lovely event to become the
proud sponsors of one of the 16 Christmas trees, decorating their branches with precious objects
worth many thousands of Swiss Francs and presenting their tree to the highest bidder together
with an exclusive gift. On 22nd December 2018 the evening begins with a welcome cocktail in Le
Restaurant at 7.30pm when the ornate trees can be viewed. The Gala Dinner follows at 8.30pm.
The proceeds of the 20th Christmas Tree Auction will go to the Blindenschule St. Moritz (St Moritz
School for the Blind), the KiBE organisation (Assistance for Children in the Upper Engadin, the
Avegnir association (Friends of cancer and long term patients) and the Ufficina association
(Assisted living for people with mental and physical disabilities).
