Foundation charity ball, act II
The second edition of the Didier Drogba Foundation's charity ball was held in London at the Grosvenor House Hotel on Saturday December 4th. And the evening was a real success in every way, like it was in 2009. More than £300,000 have been raised from the auction in order to accomplish Didier's dream: to build a hospital in Abidjan. "I'm so happy that everybody could come", he admitted afterwards.
Didier's Chelsea teammates attended the evening, so did some Arsenal or Tottenham players. Many famous artists like Akon, Nicole Scherzinger, The Saturdays or Fally Ipupa also contributed to the success of this 2010 Didier Drogba Foundation's charity ball. But the fight, to provide financial and material support in both health and education to the African people, is not over, said Didier in an emotional speech.
