Kidsave Charity Art Auction at the Baltschug Kempinski
Photos Yury Abramochkin

The continued expansion of the Russian economy, the development of institutions such as charitable giving, and a local appetite for luxury goods all helped make Kidsave’s most recent fundraising event a success. On March 15, an art auction and gala held at Moscow’s Hotel Baltschug Kempinski attracted over 150 attendees and raised more than $112,000 for the charity, which runs programs for children living in orphanages and foster care. One of the event’s organizers, Rockwell Development’s Dmitry Besedovsky, noted that “each year we are attracting more and more attention from major multinationals, and now we are seeing an onslaught of interest from major Russian blue chips as well.” Kidsave is planning another art auction fundraiser to take place this fall.
