Valentino Rossi's heart helmet from Mugello 2007 could be yours
Dainese will be auctioning off on eBay the Agv helmet worn by Valentino Rossi to the benefit of the non-profit “Un sogno per il Gaslini Onlus” association (“A dream for Gaslini Children’s Hospital”), and the Doctor himself will present the autographed helmet to the generous bidder in person in early December.
The auction is scheduled to start at 12.00 PM on Thursday, November 22 and will end at the same time on Tuesday, November 27:
Proceeds from the on-line auction will be entirely devolved to the non-profit “Un sogno per il Gaslini Onlus” association for the completion of an accommodation structure to serve the over 50,000 children admitted to Genoa’s Giannina Gaslini Hospital, Italy’s largest children’s hospital.
In particular, a center with areas dedicated to play, distance learning, physical rehabilitation, and meetings with family members will be created inside San Gerolamo Abbey next door to the hospital.
The over 70 thousand Euros raised from the auction of the Doctor’s racing suit, boots, and gloves in 2006 were also dedicated to the “Un sogno per il Gaslini” Project.
