Charity Auction: On Friday, May 8, Montblanc will host a benefit at Sotheby's in New York to announce the World Exhibition Tour of its photo project honoring the involvement of 12 great actresses and their efforts to support UNICEFs fight against inadequate education and illiteracy. This years charitable ambassadors including Sienna Miller, Eva Longoria, Christina Ricci, Emily Blunt, Marcia Cross, Andie MacDowell, Helen Hunt, Lauren Hutton, Milla Jovovich, Jessica Lange, Susan Sarandon and Mira Sorvino are featured in a series of signed portraits by renowned American photographer Roger Moenks.

The portraits will be on display from May 6-13, 2009 at Sotheby's New York before traveling to London and then Los Angeles where they will be auctioned off to benefit UNICEF at a charity gala dinner on September 8th, International Literacy Day. Based on an original concept by Signature International, a cultural and artistic charitable initiative, each actress was photographed portraying her favorite literary heroine in celebration of the art of writing. Each portrait will be presented to the winning bidder accompanied by a limited edition Montblanc writing instrument covered in the finest diamonds and sapphires.
