As the Official Timekeeper for Baptist Hospital, Audemars Piguet President and CEO Francois-Henry Bennahmias, joined by NBA MVP LeBron James and legendary vocalist Celine Dion, hosted an event on December 16th to benefit the Baptist Cardiac and Vascular Institute.
It was an unforgettable evening, as Dion took the stage for a private concert as a symbol of gratitude to the Institute for saving the life of her husband, Rene Angelil. When the sold-out concert came to a close, Dion (who began singing verses from songs related to time) and Bennahmias auctioned off an 18k white gold and baguette diamond Jules Audemars Chronograph Tourbillon watch.
All-star LeBron James has never been one to sit back and watch, and in true Bron-fashion, the extraordinary athlete added two floor seats to a Miami Heat/Boston Celtics game to the auction. The atmosphere was electric, and the auction of several exclusive packages produced nearly $500,000 in proceeds.
