When you think about the Red Cross as an organization, then you can see the amazing humanitarian initiatives they partake in and the thousands and millions that they saved over the years that they have been around. And at the Mecca of the institution, i.e., Switzerland, the Swiss Red Cross is all set to host the water-themed Swiss Red Cross Gala. Taking place in Zurich on September 3, 2011, the event will be partnered by Montegrappa. And you can be a part of the noble event too, by placing bids on the personalized Montegrappa Portrait Pen. Cast in rose gold, you can get the pen engraved with anything you wish, as many as two portraits or symbols of your choice.
The pen will be engraved by hand using “traditional manual technique” directly on the surface of the pen, making it not just personalize but also an exquisite work of art. Set to be auctioned by the CEO of Christie’s, Germany Andreas Rumbler, the pen will raise funds for the Swiss Red Cross program called “In Aid of Victims of Forgotten Disasters.” For details, mail here.
