Leonardo DiCaprio certainly knows how to have a great time for a great cause. The actor celebrated his 37th birthday at a star studded party in New York City. Guests included Russell Simmons, Bradley Cooper, his mom, and of course, some of Victoria’s Secrets’ most famous models. (Perhaps he invited them when he attended the Victoria’s Secret fashion show last week.)

While guests indulged in some decadence that adds up to more than most people make in a year, like the bottles of vintage Cristal champagne that boast a price tag of $50,000 per bottle, it wouldn’t be a Leo bash without doing a little something for charity.

The J. Edgar star and his millionaire pals raised 1.3 million dollars for charity at the shindig. The funds will go to support his wildlife conservation efforts as well as disaster relief in Haiti.

Perhaps the funds will go towards saving tigers, or stopping the shark fin trade, two of his most recent causes. Either way, we’re glad the actor is continuing his habit of turning almost everything he does into a fundraising opportunity.
