A dinner and auction event in Cannes drew film festival attendees and raised more than $7 million for the American Foundation for AIDS Research (amfAR).

Tables for the Cinema Against AIDS gala ranged from $30,000 to $100,000, including Burlesque entertainment from Dita Von Teese and a suprise performance by Kylie Minogue of her songs “Locomotion” and “Can’t Get You Out Of My Head”.

Guest auctioneer Sharon Stone sold lots which included a kiss from George Clooney, for which one woman happily paid $350,000.

AmfAR supports AIDS research, prevention, treatment, education and the advocacy of sound AIDS-related public policy. Its Cinema Against AIDS gala has taken place annually since 1993, and has raised more than $22 million for essential AIDS research. Past events have been hosted by Dame Elizabeth Taylor, Sharon Stone, Demi Moore, and Sir Elton John.
