A string of “Maybach” and “Bentley” stretched on Wednesday evening to the metro Avtozavodskaya, where the third Charity Battle of the Friends Fund was held in the loft on the embankment. Lawyer and businessman Dmitry Yampolsky, businessman Ghor Nakhapetyan and financier Yan Yanovskiy regularly call on their generous friends to meet with a warm circle, sing something from rock and roll and collect money for charity. This time – to support the funds “Nochlezhka”, “Children’s Hearts”, “Sunny City” and “Old Age for Joy.” Gore Nahapetyan combined this matter with his birthday – originally planned in a different way, but the group “Secret” coveted by all could only on Wednesday. It was very successful: dear guests Maxim Oreshkin, Len Blavatnik, David Yakobashvili, Igor Sosin, Dmitry Razumov, Mikhail Slipenchuk, Vahe Yengibaryan, Anton Pak, David Davidovich, Alexander Ivlev and those,
Maxim Oreshkin and Jan Yanovsky
The first rule of Charity Battles Foundation “Friends” is to buy at the entrance of chips at least ten thousand rubles. For the chips in the loft booze was sold (one chip – one thousand-ruble glass of anything), food from the restaurants of Alexander Rappoport, transfer tattoos, ice cream and cakes. For the Candy Bar and Tattoo Corner, secular fairies Polina Kitsenko, Sofiko Shevardnadze, Nika Belotserkovskaya and blogger @Tetyamotya Natalia Davydova, who stuck pictures on themselves with their swallows on chest decorated with swallows, which they advertised as Blue Birds of Happiness, responded to Candy Bar and Tattoo Corner .
Teti Moti’s husband Ivan Streshinsky (USM Holdings), the winner of the past battle during the St. Petersburg Economic Forum, lit up desperately. Battle as such was not, everyone sang in turn. Because there is not such a big stage in the world that the music team of Garber Hannam Partners Group and the orchestra of Vladimir Avetisyan (“RUSNANO”) together with backing vocals and dancers could hold simultaneously. Oleg Sysuev (Alfa-Bank) sang “Everything that remains after me” DDT in honor of Boris Nemtsov. Son Anton Nemtsov and mother Ekaterina Odintsova stood at the stage and listened.

Ivan Urgant on this holiday was responsible for auctions and jokes. “I’ve never seen so many” Hammond Rolands “on one stage,” Urgant remarked. Indeed, all the singing oligarchs came with their electric keys. Lots (regardless of their content) flew at the speed of light. Tickets for Depeche Mode with personal communication on backstage went for seven hundred and fifty thousand rubles, the Bolshoi box for the Nutcracker on December 31 – for half a million, and Timofey Kolesnikov’s multimedia art for four hundred thousand. “What did I buy?” – asked the lucky owner of the projection of his head on the back of the stage.
Those who were lazy to sing could vote for their favorite musician. For this, it was necessary to throw a red chip face value of five thousand rubles into the urn. Elective frauds such as “carousel” and “throw-in” were actively welcomed – the same generous person could vote as many times as he wished. Ivan Streshinsky again won, but gave victory to Vladimir Avetisyan, who took home the most valuable trophy – a porcelain figurine in the form of fingers made up by a “goat”.
At Mount Nahapetyan in the honor of his birthday, a cake of capkake was formed – he was sold briskly by the piece with a hammer. “Secret” also went to cheers – his high-rise fans knew all the words of the songs “My Love on the fifth floor”, “Alice” and “Hello.” We drove absolutely happy not deep after midnight, waking the drivers and leaving a total of eight million in favor of children, the elderly and the St. Petersburg homeless.
