The gala included an auction with lots donated by supporters of the foundation and included Bono’s guitar, an original Audrey Hepburn print, a Salvator Dali sketch, sporting memorabilia and the Prince’s personal bicycle. Over one million Euros was raised at the event.

It has a compact footprint that will easily fit in storage holds, and is light enough to be carried by hand if needed.
