Leonardo DiCaprio auctioned off a trip to the moon with him in 2015 for 700,000 Euros (close to $1 million) at the annual amfAR auction at the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc near Cannes, France on Thursday. The money from the auction is donated to AIDS research.
Other auctioned items from the evening included a 1967 Andy Warhol painting of Marilyn Monroe (for 350,000 euros), a 1968 Picasso painting (for 380,000 euros) and a 10,000-year-old fossil coated in steel by Damien Hirst (for 11 million euros). Lana del Rey performed at the beginning of the night, and Robin Thicke closed, Variety reports.
The charity raised $38 million overall, a record for the fundraiser.
