The auction is the most important part of the gala evening. Precisely because he manages to collect multimillion-dollar donations. Lots for struggling businessmen and celebrities are extremely unusual and creative: the painting of Andy Warhol, the opportunity to star in a cult TV series or a movie, romantic evening with Leonardo DiCaprio (or flying him into space), performance on the same stage with the famous musician or group photo shoot from Mario Testino and others lots.
