A Bid to Save the Earth has two parts: A month-long online auction and a one-night, star-studded evening sale event on Earth Day — the latter of which sounds decidedly more exciting, since the Green Auction Host Committee’s a long list of A-list celebrities including Leonardo DiCaprio, Salma Hayek and Ed Norton. They — along with luminaries like David de Rothschild and Susan and David Rockefeller, Jr. — will descend on Christie’s in New York on April 22 — the 40th anniversary of Earth Day — to bid on major works from artists including Keith Tyson, Subodh Gupta and Olafur Eliasson, upscale eco-vacations, and “celebrity experiences” with Hugh Jackman, Candice Bergen and many others.
Won’t be at that glitzy event? Watch it live online at Christies.com
, or participate in the online auction at ABidtoSavetheEarth.org
, which will also feature some celeb experiences — like premier tickets to Cameron Diaz’s new movie The Green Hornet
, lunch with Vera Wang, and a private cooking lesson with eco-chef Alice Waters at Chez Panisse in Berkeley — as well as famous artwork. Christie’s is even waiving its cut, so all proceeds will go to the eco-nonprofits. Bidding for those items begin April 8 and will run through May 6; sign up for the green auction’s e-mail list
for a reminder to bid closer to date.
