Moët & Chandon vending machine was up for grabs, as for the first time Moët Hennessy offered an opportunity to own the world’s only in-home champagne vending machine. Fetching the highest bid at the amfAR gala, Moët Mini Vending Machine, stocked with 336 Moët & Chandon mini bottles, raised $85,000 for The Foundation for AIDS Research.
Dispensing mini bottles of Moët & Chandon Brut and Rosé, Moët’s one-of-a-kind Mini Vending Machine was designed in 2013. Complementing the color of Champagne, it sports a high-end look with a metallic rose gold finish. During the amfAR gala, actor Alan Cummings demonstrated how the vending machine works to dispense Champagne. In addition to these unique and rare items donated to support amfAR’s work around the globe, Moët Hennessy also served Moët & Chandon Impérial Brut, Numanthia Termes 2013 and Cape Mentelle Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2016 to accompany the dinner.
A-listers like Mark Ruffalo, Naomi Campbell, Iman, Heidi Klum, Ellie Goulding, Alessandra Ambrosio, Diane Kruger, Adriana Lima, Jeremy Piven, and amfAR Chairman of the Board Kenneth Cole were among those who gathered at the 19th annual amfAR New York Gala to pay tribute to actress Scarlett Johansson and Artistic Director Donatella Versace for their longtime support of amfAR and exceptional contributions to the fight against AIDS. The event raised nearly $2 million for amfAR’s life-saving AIDS research programs.
