Around 800 guests attended the AIDS fundraising gala on the sidelines of the ongoing 64th Cannes International Film Festival in France. Founded by the late Elizabeth Taylor, the fundraiser for the American AIDS research foundation amFAR is the biggest of its kind in Europe. Hollywood star Sharon Stone, who had been lined up to preside over the evening’s fund-raising auction, failed to attend, citing professional commitments. Last year’s gala raised $7.64 million, said the organisers.
