CANNES (Reuters) - Celebrities including Queen Latifah, Jeffrey Wright and Heidi Klum escaped the Cannes Film Festival's crowded Croisette Boulevard for a night to attend a fundraiser for AIDS research at a secluded luxury hotel in the nearby resort town of Antibes. "I wanted to be here tonight because I think it's such a beautiful charity and just to be able to do what I can," said Bebe Rexha, one of the stars performing at the Thursday event.
In addition to Rexha, Gladys Knight, Adam Lambert and Halsey entertained the high-paying guests while Queen Latifah played host for the evening that included a fashion show and auction.
The goal of the luxury evening was to raise money on behalf of amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research, which also supports HIV prevention, treatment education and advocacy. "Our goal is there can be a cure for everyone," said amfAR chief executive Kevin Robert Frost on the event's blue carpet.
Before dinner, guests strolled the hotel's paradisiacal courtyard with a view of the water - and a giant yacht - as they sipped Champagne and looked at items being auctioned off.Read more on msn.com
