The Swiss watchmaker BOVET 1822 once again supported Artists for Peace and Justice (APJ) by sponsoring the Hollywood Domino pre-Oscar event at the historic Sunset Tower Hotel.
Owner of Bovet, Mr. Pascal Raffy, was joined that evening by APJ founder and Academy Award winning director, Paul Haggis and stars supporting the cause including Jon Hamm, Kevin Jonas, Maria Bello, Vanessa Hudgens, Kate Beckinsale, Adrian Brody, Jimmy Jean-Louis, Rumer Willis and Omar Epps.
Having helped raise over $1.7 million in 2013 Bovet hopes to aid in raising even more vital funds this year to continue to support the Academy for Peace and Justice in Haiti, which was created for children affected by the earthquake of 2010. This was the 3rd year in a row Bovet has been the main sponsor of this event and it marked the first part of Bovet’s standing commitment announced this past December for a minimum of 5 years for $5 million of continued support for the charity.
BOVET craftsmen employed all their expertise and experience to accurately convey the intent of the Italian designers and create a dial of spellbinding technical complexity. The finished article, comprising 35 components on five levels, meets all design criteria to the letter (design, volumes, legibility and sportiness).
After a night full of passion from all of those who came to support APJ’s mission toward education there was a total of over half a million dollars raised for a truly sweet ending to a beautiful night.
