Goldie Hawn among celebrities at AIDS gala in Brazil

Proceeds support AIDS research and prevention

RIO DE JANEIRO - Supermodel Linda Evangelista, actress Goldie Hawn and fashion designer Kenneth Cole have turned out for a glitzy charity dinner and auction in Rio de Janeiro.

Around 300 people in their evening finest attended Friday's $2,500-a-plate black tie gala organized by AIDS research and prevention organization amfAR.

It was the organization's first event in Rio, and local Brazilian celebrities were out in force. In addition to the gaggle of lanky models, guests included designer Lenny Niemeyer, socialite Andrea Dellal and her daughter, punky model Alice Dellal, and her friend Cara Delavigne.

The auction of seven luxury lots fetched nearly $200,000. A trip for two to the Moet & Chandon Champagne family's chateau and a pair of hoop earrings with more than eight carats-worth of emeralds were among the top-fetching lots.
