A life-changing evening: Paris announces the return of its Foundation's gala

The seventh edition of the gala will aim to fund the creation of an École Rouge et Bleu ("Rouge et Bleu School") at the Necker–Enfants Malades Hospital, a pioneering initiative designed for the children that need it the most.

On 30th May 2023, Paris will be the venue for a magical evening on which the Rouge et Bleu family will get together once again, for the seventh time in its history, under the guidance of the club's president and CEO as well as the president of the Paris Saint-Germain Foundation and the Paris Saint-Germain Endowment Fund, Nasser Al-Khelaifi.

Staying true to their mission, the Paris Saint-Germain Foundation and the Paris Saint-Germain Endowment Fund will aim to raise the funds needed to finance upcoming projects, starting with a Rouge et Bleu School at the Necker–Enfants Malades Hospital, as well as a Cantine Solidaire ("Canteen for All"), a food-aid and support programme for vulnerable students.

The club's first-team players, women's team players, handball players, judokas, partners, sponsors and educators will be part of this great celebration. Together, they will pay tribute to all those who, day after day, dedicate their energy to supporting disadvantaged and ill young people by putting in place innovative educational programmes.

Fabien Allègre, Deputy CEO of the Paris Saint-Germain Foundation and Vice-President of the Paris Saint-Germain Endowment Fund: "We're excited to be once again organising our gala. This year, we're honouring the Rouge et Bleu School programme and its revolutionary project within the Necker–Enfants Malades Hospital. This is a first, and we're proud to take up this unprecedented challenge. This school will be a beacon of hope for those that need it the most. It's an extraordinary project, but we want to go even further. In order to do so and to best help disadvantaged children to build their futures, we need the support and the togetherness of the entire Paris Saint-Germain family."

Since 2010 and 2013 respectively, the PSG Foundation and the PSG Endowment Fund have changed the lives of more than 290 beneficiaries through 400 initiatives carried out each year. Thanks to the exceptional commitment of the 350 educators trained according to Paris Saint-Germain expertise, the Foundation creates and develops innovative educational programmes such as the Rouge et Bleu School dedicated to pupils after school, the Onze de légende ("Legendary XI") for disabled children, the Cantine Solidaire for students in food insecurity and the programme Allez les filles ("Let's Go, Girls") dedicated to young girls from disadvantaged areas. Various other initiatives have also been put in place, such as PSG Villages and PSG Holidays.
