The third Italian edition of the annual Celebrity Fight Night, one of the major charity events in the world, is touchdown in Tuscany until September 13th.
Established 22 years ago by boxing legend Muhammad Ali, this prestigious event was held for the third year in Italy thanks to Andrea Bocelli, the famous Italian tenor who since many years is a supporter of the Celebrity Fight Night Foundation, the historic philanthropic institution that will raise funds for projects related to the Andrea Bocelli Foundation and Muhammad Ali Parkinson Center.
The funds raised through previous Celebrity Fight Night events in Italy, were used by the Foundation to implement its projects in favour of people and communities in Haiti, and to expand the research and care for people with Parkinson's disease. Almost one hundred and fifty guests, including American benefactors and major international stars are expected to join the program that will offer to its participants a trip between Florence, Venice and Lajatico.
The journey had its most important moment in the Gala Dinner organized in the historic Salone dei Cinquecento of Palazzo Vecchio on Sunday, September 11. The Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli, along with the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino orchestra under the direction of Maestro Zubin Mehta, headlined the evening and will be joined by several guests and outstanding artists, including Reba McEntire, David Foster, Brooks & Dunn, Peter Cetera and The London Essentials.
The Jeep brand was by the side of Lonnie Ali, the Queen Rania of Jordan, Andrea Bocelli and the several Italian and international stars attending this evening of solidarity, and supplied a fleet of fifteen cars to shuttle celebrities and guests across Florence to reach the red carpet of the Gala Dinner at Palazzo Vecchio.
