This past Sunday, Bosco Cafe at GUM hosted the XXI International Alba White Truffle Charity Auction.
The event was organized by the Italian Embassy in Moscow together with the Piedmont Region and ENIT with contacts by video with Grinzane Cavour, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Dubai. Bosco Café Chef Davide Corso offered exquisite truffle dishes to the guests.
Several pieces of white truffle and precious Piedmont wines were presented at the auction. The final lot was a 900 g piece of white truffle that ultimately went to Hong Kong. All auction proceeds will be used for charity projects. Italian Ambassador to Russia Pasquale Terracciano made a speech: “Today when all of our attention is practically always on COVID-19, it is important not to forget other people who require our help.”
All proceeds of the XXI International Alba White Truffle Charity Auction session in Moscow will be transferred to the Rogachev National Medical Research Center for Pediatric Hematology, Oncology, and Immunology.
