Film stars, champion athletes and charity – all this and more at Celebrity Fight Night, which celebrated in 2016 its third edition, that saw participating Excellence Magazine as “Official Sponsor”.
Many guests flocked to the charity event, organised to raise funds specifically for the Andrea Bocelli Foundation and the Muhammad Ali Parkinson Center.
As is tradition by now, the prestigious, enchanting backdrop to the evening was the gem of Italy’s linguistic and literary heritage, Medici Florence.
There were also numerous prominent names of the star system, from sport to fashion, in particular Lonnie Ali, widow of the unforgettable Muhammad Ali.
During the gala dinner, Queen Rania of Jordan, the undisputed protagonist of the gathering, accepted the Andrea Bocelli Humanitarian Award.
The evening at Palazzo Corsini was organised in collaboration with Excellence Magazine and Roxana Pansino, who created the stunning dress worn by Veronica Bocelli (wife of Andrea Bocelli).
The final event was a pleasure for the taste buds with dishes prepared by chefs from Euro-Toques Italia.
The great chef Enrico Derflingher, President of Euro-Toques International, delighted the palates of the prestigious guests with his “Regina Vittoria” risotto prepared just for the occasion.
The most enthralling moment of all was the performance by Andrea Bocelli who, as always, made the event truly unique with his extraordinary voice.
