Doing a good deed has never been classier...

While browsing online, on one of my "break from going-out so much" summer nights, I came upon an article about the celeb-studded Amfar's annual AIDS fund-raiser event. This event was held outside the famous Le Moulin de Mougins restaurant in Cannes. The scene was filled with A-listers such as: Madonna, Sharon Stone, Sean Combs, Donatella, Versace, Tommy Hilfiger, Tamara Mellon, Georgina Chapman, Milla Jovovich, Natalie Portman, Joely Richardson, Eva Herzigova, Rose Mcgowan and Mary J Blige.

Being a devoted volunteer to the sick and the elderly myself, I am proud to see even celebrities taking up so many great causes. Here are some fun facts from the night, mes cheries:
-Madonna auctioned of a one-of-a-kind Chanel by Karl Lagerfield alligator bag with 334 diamonds on the clasp for $464, 000
-Sharon Stone donated her restored 1976 Porsche Targa, which was auctioned of for more than $773, 000.
-Diddy auctioned of 24 hours with himself for $310, 000
-Tommy Hilfiger donated $ 100, 000
-The likes of Harvey Weinstein and Quentin Tarantino auctioned of lunches with themselves

The final total of money raised by the end of the night was $10 million! Bravo everyone!
