A signed, dated Andy Warhol lithograph of the late Elizabeth Taylor, co-founder of amfAR, went for $580,000.

“It was a fantastic night with record-breaking numbers,” said event co-chair Harvey Weinstein.

Elizabeth Taylor would have been very proud. Everyone was so incredibly generous – the actors, models, public figures and of course the people who bid.  It was an evening I’ll never forget.”
