Wolfgang Sickenberg, Audemars Piguet Chief Sales Officer, and Franco Ziviani, CEO of Audemars Piguet Italy, attended the event in the company of Formula 1 racing driver and brand ambassador Jarno Trulli.

“I am delighted that my friends have donated these precious objects to support my project on behalf of Cameroon”, said Samuel Eto’o. “I am convinced that this evening will help to improve the living conditions of the children and young people in my country.”
