240,000 euros for a statue of Richard Orlinski, 220,000 euros for a painting… The “For Hope” association, co-founded a year ago by Idrissa Gueye, was a hit on Thursday evening in Paris to collect, in total, 1 010 100 euros. The PSG midfielder brought together the entire Parisian workforce as well as many personalities at the Salons Hoche, located in the 8th arrondissement of the capital for a gala and an auction for the benefit of the association which comes to help children with HIV or cancer.

Kylian Mbappé, Neymar, Achraf Hakimi, Lionel Messi, Angel Di Maria… All the PSG stars were present for this evening. The auction started around 10 p.m., without the Argentines Messi, Di Maria or Paredes, who had already left. They gave Neymar the opportunity to win a ball from the African Cup of Nations final signed by all the Senegalese winners including Idrissa Gueye.
