Dinner with Bonucci, Juventus football player
Mario and Stefano spent a special evening in the company of Leonardo Bonucci, the famous Juventus football player, having won the auction on CharityStars. The proceeds from the evening went to support Live Onlus. Here's what they told us: Stefano: "Since I was a child I have loved Juventus. Now that I am 39 year old I follow Juventus in a more responsibile and adult like way, but the evening with Leonardo made me a child again! I felt excited and shy. Leonardo is a great player, and I can testify, he is also a great man and now he will be among my "legends" . It was a really special event that felt "among friends", I had the feeling I had known him for years. He proved helpful, kind and sympathetic. Many thanks to Leonardo, the guys at Live Onlus and Matteo and Manuela of CharityStars who have shown great professionalism and courtesy." Mario: "Stumbling around on the internet I became aware of CharityStars and the initiatives they support. I was impressed by the dinner with Bonucci and, although initially a bit sceptical, I decided to participate in the auction. After a couple of days I won the auction and I headed to Turin to attend the dinner. To be honest, I was a bit confused, but arrived at the restaurant where we had dinner and I met the staff of CharityStars and Live Onlus and was very impressed by the authenticity and professionalism of these guys. Thank you so much for making me spend an unforgettable evening during which I had the pleasure of meeting Leonardo, who I guarantee is very humble and nice, and let me hear his stories and many anecdotes. What an unforgettable evening! Thanks to the people who have given us the opportunity to dine with Bonucci and do good at the same time. A special thanks to Leonardo, Manuela Ravalli, Andrea Zalamena, Matthew Massardi and all the rest of the staff. For sure I will not miss out on the next event and will recommend it to other friends. A hug."
