Autogrill fund-raising for Telethon beats expectations: greater solidarity among Italians since 11 September, confirmed by CIRM research project

Roma , 16 October 2001 - "Autogrill in viaggio con Telethon", the major fund-raising campaign involving millions of Autogrill customers in Italy, is forging ahead. Since the launch of the initiative one month ago, donations from Autogrill customers together with the equivalent amount offered by the company add up to a grand total of 400 million lire. The one billion lire target set at the project launch therefore looks well within reach, considering that the fund-raising effort will continue until 13 December, prior to the traditional television marathon to be held on 14 and 15 December.
