Benefit for the 'Baptist Cardiac and Vascular Institute' (USA)

Friday, December 16, 2011

On Friday, December 16, 2011, Celine Dion performed a private benefit concert to help launch the Baptist Cardiac and Vascular Institute's $60 million dollar expansion campaign, to thank the Institute and the physicians who helped save her husband René's life three years ago. The audience of 1,700 enjoyed a reception before the concert, held at 7:30 pm at The Fillmore Miami Beach, Florida, at the Jackie Gleason Theater. The concert raised $6 million, including campaign-related contributions.

Following the performance was a private dinner, where Celine Dion and Francois-Henry Bennahmias auctioned off an 18k white gold and baguette diamond Jules Audemars Chronograph Tourbillon watch.

Celine Dion wore creations by Dolce & Gabbana and Marchesa.
