Mentor Foundation Royal Gala

Princess Madeleine of Sweden attended the Mentor Foundation Royal Gala at the Waldorf Astoria in New York on Thursday.

The Mentor Foundation is an international non-government not for profit organisation with a focus on the prevention of drug misuse and the promotion of health and well-being of young people. Mentor aims to support the effective use of resources (human, financial and intellectual) to achieve its goals. Mentor's focus is to "help the helpers", by identifying the most promising and excellent practices for drug misuse prevention and by disseminating this experience and knowledge internationally.

The Mentor Foundation's Board of Trustees is drawn from a wide range of distinguished individuals from many countries, including members of royal families and celebrities. All of them are committed to Mentor's Mission Statement and are united by a deep concern for young people threatened by substance abuse, playing active roles in supporting Mentor's activities and contributing significant time and personal funds to the Foundation.

President of The Mentor Foundation is HM Queen Silvia of Sweden, and Honorary Trustees are HM Queen Noor of Jordan, TRH The Grand Duke Henry and Grand Duchess María Teresa of Luxembourg, HRH Crown Prince Felipe of Spain and HRH Prince Talal Bin Abdul Aziz of Saudi Arabia.
