​Nothing pulls at our heart strings more than a child without a holiday gift. The American Club of Madrid has partnered with Toys for Tots, our beneficiary of this year’s Gala.

We are proud to work with our U.S. Embassy Marine Security Guard Detachment partners in Madrid who will work with area schools and Spanish organizations to collect new toys for local children in Spain.

Additionally, we are proud to announce we have named the MD Anderson Cancer Center as our Premio Puente Award winner - The ‘Premio Puente' was created in 2012 to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the American Club of Madrid. This distinguished award recognizes entities and individuals dedicated to excellence whose work strengthens the ties and relationships between Spain and the United States, whether on a corporate, philanthropic, diplomatic, humanitarian, artistic or scientific level.

Our past recipients include:

  • D. Javier Rupérez, 2012, ambassador and politician
  • D. Antonio Garrigues Walker, 2014, jurist and international legal expert
  • Dña. Agatha Ruiz de la Prada, 2016, designer, women’s, charity and cultural leadership
  • D. Antonio Huertas, 2017, chairman and CEO, MAPFRE
  • Dña. María García García, 2018, leader in Microsoft USA, CEO Microsoft Iberia, CEO Siemens España

In case you need more convincing, here are five reasons you should join us at the gala:

  1. Help us meet our goals to collect funds for local area schools and organizations in Spain. Did you know that over 97% of Toys for Tots donations go directly to their mission of providing toys, books, and other gifts to less fortunate children? Less than 3% is spent on fundraising and overhead. Your contribution to the event will help us meet these goals.
  2. Professional and Social Networking. Get to know other members and supporters of the American Club of Madrid and grow your network here in Madrid.
  3. Enjoy a night of fun with dinner, dancing, at the lavish InterContinental Hotel of Madrid. Join us for a night to remember while supporting a great cause.
  4. Win great prizes. We have a long list of partners that have donated amazing gifts and services for our silent auction.
  5. Seats are still available! Flying solo or with a plus one? We still have seats still available, but we do sell out each year so please get your ticket today!

The event will take place on March 16th at 8pm at the InterContinental Hotel. For more information on sponsorship, contact
