Would you pay $1.5 million to go to a few Oscar parties?†Or†$1.8 million to fly to the moon on Virgin Galactic†with Leonardo DiCaprio?† Someone did — and more.†That’s what made Harvey Weinstein smile when we spoke after†amFAR’s annual Cinema Against AIDS Cannes Film Festival gala†got a very special 20th anniversary present Thursday night. Co-hosts Weinstein and Kenneth Cole announced to a roomful of very high rollers that the event, held of the Hotel Du Cap, had raised $25 million, smashing last year’s record total of†over $10 million.†Before the ultra-high style †party that has been a staple of the Cannes festival for the past two decades, Weinstein had told me if they just†made a dollar†more than the previous year they would be happy. But these multimillionaires and billionaires†obviously came to play this year and really stepped up to†the auction that featured numerous stars including jury members Nicole Kidman and Christoph Waltz, along with Jessica Chastain, Jeremy Renner, Rosario Dawson, Heidi†Klum, Goldie Hawn, Janet Jackson,†Adrien Brody and major fundraiser and auctioneer Sharon Stone.
