The 1000 Miglia Gala Charity Dinner organized by 1000 Miglia in collaboration with and in support of the Cystic Fibrosis Research Foundation – Non-Profit Organization – was held on Monday May 13th, in the splendid setting of the Santa Giulia Museum in Brescia.
The gala evening was presented by Paolo Kessisoglu, actor, comedian and TV host of the duo Luca and Paolo. Filippo Lotti, General Manager of Sotheby’s Italy, conducted the charity auction in favor of the Laureus Italia Non Profit Foundation, committed to supporting disadvantaged children and young people, using sport as a therapeutic tool.
Thanks to the generosity of the guests there, a total of 64,000 Euros was collected, part of which will be donated to the Association La Zebra Non-Profit Organization in support of the Brescia Hospital, in continuity with the 1000 Miglia Charity project of the Freccia Rossa’s last edition.
