Suited & Booted: Samuel Eto’o Charity Gala

What’s that you say? Photos of ‘ballers in suits and tuxedos are the only thing that will get you through until the glorious stroke of 5 PM rolls on and the first alcoholic beverage of the weekend is permitted to satiate your exhausted palates? You’re in luck!
Last night, Inter Milan striker Samuel Eto’o hosted a charity gala to raise funds for his Fundación Privada, which benefits the Pediatric Hospital Laqunitinie in Cameroon. As is usually the case, several of Sam’s team-mates and their lovely WAGs injected a little footy star power into the evening – including Cristian and Adelina Chivu, Julio Cesar and Susana Werner (who has us wondering if the dress was by choice or for concealment purposes), a much-improved Giampaolo Pazzini and Silvia Slitti, and a Yolathe-less Wes Sneijder.
Bonus: Charity champion Didier Drogba also jetted in to support his friend’s cause. We’d like to think that Didi is holding his iPhone so prominently because he also provided some slick beats once the dinner plates had been cleared. Girls can dream.
