Salma Hayek and Anna Wintour are among the celebrities taking part in this year’s “Bid to Save the Earth”.

This is the second annual green auction hosted by elite auction house, Christie’s. Last year’s event raised over $2 million for environmental groups, with items such as a round of golf with Bill Clinton going for $80,000.

This year’s auction will see artists, designers and entertainers come together to raise funds for Oceana, Conservation International, Natural Resources Defense Council and the Central Park Conservancy.

Artwork, celebrity dates, luxury travel and high fashion lots will be auctioned off in New York on March 19, with a silent sale on Christie’s LIVE at www.christies.com.

Host David Rockefeller said “everyone can support the Green Auction through the Internet — a truly democratic way to stand up for Mother Earth.”

Rockefeller plans to devote his years in the 21st century to the conservation of oceans and the living systems within them.

“The Christie’s Green Auction gives wide recognition to the importance of ocean conservation and enables people of every means to participate easily and effectively,” he told Reuters.

Prince Albert II of Monaco is serving on the honorary host committee, and the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation is providing carbon offsets to ensure that the event is carbon neutral.

Christie’s will waive all fees and commissions associated with the sale.
