Hollywood stars, artists and billionaires are all set to gather to flaunt their wealth for a good cause heralded by Leonardo DiCaprio. The Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation is staging its second annual auction gala in Saint-Tropez with all proceeds going directly to LDF’s environmental protection programs.The highlight of this auction is an eco-friendly estate home on DiCaprio’s private island in Belize which is offered for the first and only time. WWD also reports that other lots to go under the hammer include art, luxury items and “once-in-a-lifetime experiences” such as a one-on-one match with Roger Federer; an arctic expedition with Albert II Prince of Monaco; a backstage visit at Madonna’s Rebel Heart Tour in 2016 as well as a seat next to David Beckham in his private box at the Wembley Stadium during an English national team soccer game.
While Grammy Award winner John Legend will hop on stage for entertainment, Marion Cotillard, Kate Hudson and Elton John will also be seen in attendance of this year’s event, which is cosponsored by Chopard and Giorgio Armani.Last year, a walk-on role in one of DiCaprio’s upcoming films sold twice for $2.4 million, while Bono’s personal guitar went for $1 million, following the singer’s live performance at the event.
