Committed to its tradition of more than 20 years in supporting, by means of sponsorship, genuine social initiatives, Musat & Asociatii sponsored the first edition of the Masquerade Charity Ball, organized by S.O.S Satele Copiilor. The charity ball took place on 9th of April, at Bragadiru Palace, gathering more than 100 notable cultural figures, businessmen and representatives of the media industry.
“Musat & Asociatii is constantly involved in humanitarian causes with a real social, educational or cultural impact. We have been impressed by the enthusiasm and efforts invested in this certain project and we are glad that we were one of those who supported this noble cause of providing a surrogate family for children in need”, said Mona Musat, Co-Managing Partner Musat & Asociatii.
