A highlight of the evening was the fun auction jointly made by Michi Primo de Rivera and Rafael Dona (owner of the firm “El Capote”) of a great American gentleman of his firm, where Rafael with great art was marked a few bids of chest with the garment showing off its taurine strain that got the ovation of the attendants.

It was a magical night, filled with joy and many surprises in which more than 300 attendees enjoyed fun Indian dances, a fabulous raffle of gifts and a wonderful auction of items donated selflessly by companies like Ferragamo, Prada, Carolina Herrera, Real Madrid Foundation, Clarins, Sisley, Green Frog, El Corte Inglés or the fabulous bouquets of roses by Aleia Roses, where the human quality and the solidarity of the attendees were once again reflected.
