150 people attended this annual event on Sunday as part of the 15th anniversary of the environmental foundation
Ibiza, 16 August 2023 – IbizaPreservation has raised more than 67,000 euros for environmental projects in Ibiza and Formentera at a charity dinner at Beachouse on Sunday evening, which was held in honour of the environmental foundation’s 15th anniversary.
The dinner was attended by some 150 people, including the foundation’s three ambassadors: Andrés Rodríguez, editor of Spainmedia, whose publications include Forbes España and Tapas Magazine; journalist and writer, Juan Suárez; and the well-known Ibiza socialite Carlos Martorell.
Attendees enjoyed a welcome drink on the beach, followed by a three-course menu accompanied by a selection of drinks provided by the foundation’s partners, including Bacardí, Alhambra, Marqués de Riscal, Ibizkus, Bodegas Can Rich and Vedrà Kombucha. As a token of appreciation and thanks to the collaboration of the companies in question, each guest was given a pot of Sal de Ibiza salt, a jar of Ibizan almonds courtesy of Frutos Secos, an entry voucher for Club Chinois, and a set of body oils from Amatrius.
In addition to the €34,000 raised through reservations for the dinner, a further €15,000 was collected in one-off donations via a QR code, plus around €13,000 via a raffle, with prizes including meals and stays in hotels on Ibiza and Formentera.
“We were delighted to count on the company and the generosity of our attendees on the occasion of our 15th anniversary and we are also extremely grateful to all the partners who made it possible to raise such an impressive sum of money. These funds will go towards the care and regeneration of our islands through the work of IbizaPreservation and its five key projects, as well as enabling us to support local environmental projects of various kinds,” said Inma Saranova, Executive Director of IbizaPreservation.
The event was made possible thanks to the support of Island Hospitality, the company that owns Beachouse and Club Chinois.
“Ibiza is our home, so partnering with IbizaPreservation was a natural process. We’re beyond grateful to support such a motivated team of people that have been working tirelessly to find solutions to the island’s issues and to safeguard its ecosystem,” said Sofija Mehta, owner of Island Hospitality.
“As custodians and caretakers of this unique place, we always felt the responsibility to leave it in a better shape than we inherited it, so future generations will also experience the magic we all have collectively found here,” she added.
In 2023 IbizaPreservation celebrates 15 years since it was first founded, a decade and a half in which it has managed to raise almost four million euros for the regeneration of the natural heritage of Ibiza and Formentera.
