Artistic Highlight and Charity Contribution

A highlight of Art of Canada's involvement was the unique painting on a jersey, showcasing a Barbagiuans player on the field of the Louis II stadium. Entitled "Champ de Bataille" (Battlefield), the artwork embodies the tenacious fight of the Barbagiuans against the disease. This painting was thoughtfully donated to the Barbagiuans and Fight AIDS Monaco associations to support their fundraising efforts at a charity event at the Fairmont Hotel in Monaco. Notably, the painting "Champ de Bataille" was won by Jerko Leko, a former AS Monaco footballer, further enhancing the event's connection to the sport.

Celebrity Engagement and Commemorative Moments

The 2024 Fight AIDS Cup, led by Louis Ducruet, President of the Barbagiuans and nephew of Prince Albert II, has achieved remarkable growth in popularity and support. The event attracted football legends and celebrities, including names like Philippe Mexès, Daniel Subasic, Claude Makelélé, Youri Djorkaeff, Robert Pires and Charles Leclerc, all uniting in the fight against HIV, which continues to impact millions globally.

H.S.H. Princess Stéphanie, a relentless ambassador for this cause, has spearheaded the battle against HIV for two decades. Her unwavering commitment, alongside the efforts of Fight AIDS Monaco, has played a pivotal role in raising awareness and funding to fight HIV. This year's event was not just a celebration of sportsmanship but also a demonstration of the principality's dedication to this essential cause.

Besides the football match between the Barbagiuans and Cirque FC, the event featured several special highlights. Notably, the introduction of a collector's jersey marked the centenary of Prince Rainier III, commemorating his passion for football and AS Monaco. Additionally, the Art of Canada logo was proudly displayed on the right sleeve of the jersey as a sponsor, signifying the collective's further commitment to supporting this crucial cause.

The 2024 Fight AIDS Cup stands as a testament to the ongoing dedication of Monaco's residents and the international community in the fight against AIDS, illustrating how sports and art can make a significant difference in this battle. Art of Canada's contribution serves as a reminder that through creativity, collaboration, and compassion, we can all play a part in the global effort to combat HIV/AIDS.
