    Final Auction Gala in Los Angeles Montblanc & Signature International Cultural and Charitable Photo Project to Benefit UNICEF

    Los Angeles, CA – September 17, 2009 –Twelve signed portraits of some of the world’s
    leading actresses with 12 one-of-a-kind limited edition Montblanc writing instruments will
    be auctioned off live in Los Angeles at a charity gala hosted by Montblanc in cooperation
    with Signature International. The event will be held on Thursday, September 17th in Los
    Angeles on the roof garden of the Regent Beverly Wilshire Hotel. All proceeds will
    benefit UNICEF’s global education and literacy programs.

    The ‘Montblanc & Signature International Cultural and Charitable Photo Project’ features
    the photography of American photographer Roger Moenks. The portraits include
    internationally known actresses Emily Blunt, Marcia Cross, Andie MacDowell, Helen
    Hunt, Lauren Hutton, Milla Jovovich, Jessica Lange, Eva Longoria, Sienna Miller,
    Christina Ricci, Susan Sarandon and Mira Sorvino. Each actress has donated her
    portrait to the exhibition and auction benefiting UNICEF’s education and literacy
    programs. From an original concept of Signature International, Moenks’ celebrity
    subjects are depicted as a heroine from the world of literature. Some of the characters
    featured in the iconic portraits include Scarlett O’Hara from Margaret Mitchell’s “Gone
    with the Wind”, Juliet from Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet”, and Marguerite Gauthier
    from “La Dame aux Camélias” by Alexandre Dumas.

    The 12 portraits were first unveiled in February at a high profile charity gala with 300 VIP
    guests and international press in attendance to mark the beginning of a year of giving at
    Montblanc. In partnership with Sotheby's, a World Exhibition Tour allowed collectors
    and enthusiasts to view the portraits and place silent bids for them, the unique images
    will now make their way back to Los Angeles for the final auction.
    In addition to the personally signed photograph of the individual celebrity the highest
    bidder of each portrait will receive a precious, one-of-a-kind version of the Montblanc
    Meisterstück, the legendary and timeless writing instrument that is celebrating its 85th
    anniversary in 2009. This unique version of the Montblanc Meisterstück is specially
    made in Montblanc’s Artisan workshops made of only the finest precious metals and
    jewels, and only exists in a rare limited edition of only 12 pieces worldwide,
    dedicated to the UNICEF collaboration in its sophisticated design features.
    Montblanc has supported UNICEF through its global ‘Power to Write’ campaign in 2004
    and 2007, raising over $1 million for UNICEF. In 2009, Montblanc renewed its
    commitment to support UNICEF’s education programs with the common goal of working
    for children’s rights to education and literacy. Montblanc has committed to raising over
    $1.5 million for UNICEF in 2009 and 2010 through the auction of the images as well as
    through other global fundraising initiatives.
    As Montblanc International CEO Lutz Bethge explains, “The support of the children
    without proper access to education cannot stop when times are tough. We are very
    proud to benefit from the support of these 12 extraordinary ladies to take our
    commitment to helping children one step further and enhance our support of UNICEF’s
    education programs around the world. Montblanc stands for credibility, trust, reliability
    and long lasting values, we therefore take our commitment to UNICEF very seriously.”
