Calling all Titanic fans! If you ever dreamed of dining with Rose Dewitt Bukater and Jack Dawson in the first-class dining saloon — here’s your chance! Leonardo DiCaprio is auctioning off a private dinner with him and Kate Winslet during the annual Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation Gala.

The 2017 event is set to take place on Wednesday, July 26 in St. Tropez, France, Entertainment Tonight reported. The highest bidder will get to enjoy a meal with Leo and Kate at an NYC restaurant of their choice, set to take place sometime in October or November.
While the proceeds of the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation have typically gone to environmental causes— Leo has donated about $80 million in grants since it was founded in 2008 — the proceeds of the dinner auction will go to two causes that are near and dear to Kate’s heart. First is a GoFundMe campaign that is about halfway to its $390,000 goal to pay for cancer treatment for a young mother in the U.K., and the rest will go to Kate’s Golden Hat Foundation — which benefits families and children with autism and families who are struggling to pay for cancer treatment.
The event will also be star-studded, and attendees will include Madonna, Cate Blanchett, Emma Stone, Marion Cotillard, Tom Hanks, Jared Leto, Penélope Cruz, Kate Hudson, Tobey Maguire, and Uma Thurman, according to E! News. Celebrity guests will also be treated to a performance by Lenny Kravitz.
Kate and Leo met while on the set of the beloved 1997 film Titanic and they’ve remained good friends — they’ve even reunited a handful of times on-and-off the screen since then. The most recent was during the 2016 Academy Awards, and Kate couldn’t hold back tears when her pal won his first Oscar for his role in his 2015 film, The Revenant.
