Leonardo DiCaprio and His Famous Friends (and Girlfriend) Love the Environment
St. Tropez was the place to be Wednesday night as Leonardo DiCaprio and company helped raise millions for a good cause.
The long time environmentalist played host for the second annual fundraising gala to support his Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation.
Orlando Bloom, Marion Cotillard, Kate Hudson, Heidi Klum, Chrissy Teigen, John Legend, Adrien Brody, Naomi Campbell, Sir Elton John and DiCaprio’s rumored new girlfriend Kelly Rohrbach were just some of the high profile celebrities who got dolled up in their gala best for the auction event.
“We’ve decimated our forests, wildlands, polluted and over fished our rivers and oceans; all the key ecosystems that not only serve as a home to our planet’s biodiversity, but also make life here for us possible,” DiCaprio said in his speech.
“I’m incredibly proud to be part of a night that will allow us to do so much to protect the planet.”
Here’s a sampling of what was on the auction block:
- Ownership of an estate home on DiCaprio’s personal island in Belize
- DiCaprio’s own Rolex Daytona Cosmograph watch
- A private concert with Elton John
- A limited re-edition of Rodin’s “The Thinker”
- Harvey Weinstein’s personal guest at “the most coveted events in the world” for one year
More than $40 million was raised for the foundation, which aims to protect “Earth’s last wild places” and implements “solutions to preserve and save the environment.”
Good work, everyone.
