Celeb Filled 'Bid To Save The Earth' Auction Raises Over $1 Mill For Environment
We told you all about Christie’s second annual “Bid to Save the Earth” green auction, which raised over $2 million for environmental groups last year, and now that the live auction is over we’ve got updates!
The party draws a star studded crowd, with attendees like Diane Kruger, Anna Wintour, Nicki Minaj, Ted Danson and more, who are looking to spend big bucks at the auction. This year the live auction raised over $1 million, with proceeds benefiting the Natural Resources Defense Council, Oceana, Conservation International and the Central Park Conservancy.
A day with former President Bill Clinton sold for $100k— guests can take him wherever they like (want Bill to go grocery shopping with you? Done), while another item up on the block was the opportunity to fly to Los Angeles with Harrison Ford on one of his private jets (not exactly eco-friendly, but hey, I’m just a writer here…).
Seth Meyers hosted the evening and said, “Let’s raise money tonight so next year’s luxury items at this event aren’t canned goods and visits to the surface world.”
If you’re sad you missed the event but are interested in getting in on some of that celeb auction action, there’s hope! The online auction lasts until April 7th over at charitybuzz.com, where you can bid on a chance to meet Justin Bieber, a tennis lesson with John McEnroe, or a once in a lifetime trip to Fashion Week with Michael Kors and Heidi Klum as your guide.
